Stupid Carelessness

Sylvia is away at a wedding in Ontario, and she left her rabbit with me...so yesterday I picked up the bunny to put her back in her cage so I could vacuum, and she struggled and I lost my grip and dropped her, right on the corner of her cage.

:-(

She started hopping around on three legs, so I rushed her to the vet emergency centre downtown, and the x-rays revealed that I'd fractured her hip. Fortunately, six to eight weeks of "cage rest" (i.e., the bunny has to stay in the cage so she doesn't hop around) and she'll be healed.

You don't really know what "low" feels like until you've broken the hip of a helpless bunny, let me tell you. I really, really feel bad.

I suck. Poor bunny.
