~ bebe news 2 ~

27 November 2003

this is 8:30 in the morning australian time. that means, it’s around 4:30PM american EST. ramanda just called me and he just got back from the vet.

bebe has passed away. they put him to sleep.


ramanda said that he died peacefully. bebe didn’t twitch or anything. ramanda didn’t even know that bebe has passed until the doctor told him. he just kept petting bebe’s head. so, bebe wasn’t in pain. so, i shouldn’t be worried.

oh boy, i don’t know why i keep crying. i know it’s better that he’s being put to sleep. i even asked ramanda to do that if nothing can be done and he’s in pain. but i’m just sad.

they said he had a stroke. they said there is some nerves in his brain that isn’t working properly. so, he has troubles seeing and moving his jaw. that’s why he didn’t eat or drink. they said, it’s probably because he’s old (8 and a half years old). they said, the bunny is quite ancient. they said, it’s probably his time. so, it’s okay. it’s better for the bunny.

on the last day i saw bebe, i wrote:

i spent most of the night play around with bebe, since i figured, this might be the last day i’d see him. he’s a seven-year-old rabbit, and i might not be able to come back to the States until 2-3 years from now… i don’t know what’s gonna happen. it was kinda sad… *sniffles*… :(

heh, when i wrote that, i knew there is a huge chance that i won’t see bebe again. i mean, yeah, he’s really old. but i still can’t stop crying.

i have to go to work now. and i still can’t figure out how to deal with the cry and all. and i miss bebe.

In the past I’ve lost one turtle, two guinea pigs and one bird. It’s heartbreaking. I don’t have any pets now for , right? He’s in pet heaven..I’m not sure if I can go through another loss.
You know that Bebe is in a better place now, right? He’s in pet heaven..
