We had to help Goldie into the Bunny-beyond on Friday afternoon. Goldie has had cataracts for quite awhile and has been fully blind for a few weeks, although for the most part she knew her way around her living areas and Benji. But in the past few days she began to be listless, not eat much, and lost control of her bodily functions. It was very hard and sad to just keep her clean and comfortable. In the long run it is for the very best, for now just incredibly sad and empty.
We got Goldie and her brother Bluie, as babies, 8 1/2 years and more ago. American fuzzy lops. Bluie had a congenital issue, and though we gave him almost daily anti-biotic shots and periodic hydration treatments, he lived well for several years.
There will never be another Goldie.
