7th Heaven


I took these 3 photos of Fatty & Pinky with my hp camera this afternoon. Last 3 shots of the siblings sleeping together happily.

I was quite tempted to name them “Patience” & “Cirrus” (depending on their gender) when they grew up… but there’s no need for that now i suppose. Pinky could just remain as Pinky… it’s an endearing name in itself.

Sigh. 🙁

Forever Young

Fatty died tonight. It was very sudden. It was about 7:30pm and i brought both babies down to the backyard to feed them. I managed to coax Horlicks to lie down so i went to carry Fatty to her… but as i was approaching, Horlicks got up again. So i placed Fatty back into its box. Fatty was so excited… nibbled my finger 3x! I told it to wait a little while till “mommy was ready”.I then went to coax Horlicks to lie down again and once she did, Clown brought the box the babies were in over to me. I picked Fatty up and saw that it was rather lifeless. When i placed Fatty near Horlick’s body and it still didn’t move much, i realised something was seriously wrong.

Clown & i examined Fatty & we suspect that it was choked on something. We tried all means to save Fatty… we patted it, stroked it and when it struggled, Clown even opened its mouth a little & blew air into it. For a while, it seemed to work and three times when it seemed to go stiff, this bunny CPR worked… but after a tough struggle of about 15mins, Fatty breathed its last.

Its throat was all stiffen up when it died. Clown opened its mouth a little to see if we could find what it choked on but we couldn’t. It appeared as though it choked on its own saliva and couldn’t cough to get rid of the choke.

Pinky’s still ok… Pinky drank A LOT of milk tonight. I was so worried when i saw its SUPER round stomach. I quickly warmed some water up & managed to help it pee… and my did it pee! Pinky’s stomach shrank to normal after that. What a relief!

I really don’t know whether Pinky will survive. It’s like every day a baby rabbit lives is a miracle. Now when i see all my 4 adult rabbits, i realise that they’re all miracles ‘cos someone, whether it’s the breeder or their mommy rabbit nursed them into life.

Quite a lot of unfortunate things happened to Clown recently… including getting into an accident on Sat nite. Sometimes we don’t understand why bad things happen. Yeah, skeptics may say it’s juz a bunny… but it was a bunny loved by all. (Pinky at first refused to go to sleep w/o the sibling… kept crawling all over the box to look for it… which is what 1 baby would do whenever we take the other out of the box). But i believe Fatty joined all my other bunnies in rabbit heaven.

Just to share a song that we sung on Sunday during service…

“Trust His Heart”All things work for our good
Though sometimes we can’t see how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two
Sometimes blind us to the truth

Our Father knows what’s best for us
His ways are not our own
So when your pathway goes dim
And you just can’t see Him
Remember He’s one the throne

(Chorus) God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When you don’t see His hand
When you can’t trace His plan
Trust His heart

He sees the master plan
He holds the future in His hand
Don’t live as those who have no hope
While our hope is found in Him

We see the present clearly
But He sees the first & last
And like a tapestry
He’s weaving you and me
To someday be just like Him

(Chorus)

(Bridge) He alone is faithful and true
He alone knows what is best for you

(Chorus)
