Tried drawing realism on my laptop instead of on paper for once...
Vent art doesn't help.
Yesterday was a horrible day.
Yesterday I had went out to tend to Adrenaline, and he was laying by the door of his hutch on the third level. He was moving slightly and all, and I was going to give him food, clean his cage, and change his water. I didn't think anything much of it, just figured he was resting out in the sun. He usually does that for a few minutes after eating before hopping around again.
I opened the door to the second floor to his hutch and looked at his food. He hadn't ate any of it. So I was a bit concerned. He was eating it the day before, no problem. So then I opened the third floor's door, and see him laying against it, and I stand there for about half a minute just.. in shock. His eye was swollen open, he couldn't close it or anything, and he was hardly moving at all. It looked like it was about to come out of his eye socket.
And I was standing for a few seconds trying to decide whether or not what I was seeing was real.. I knew it was, but I was processing the fact that my rabbit was just...in terrible condition
So I immediately went inside and my parents helped me get him to get him inside. We called all the vets in our area, but none were open.
The veterinarian told us that for the night we could use this certain kind of eye drops over the counter that until we could get him to the vet's office, which was SUPPOSED to be early this morning.
So my dad and I go to Walmart, get the medicine, and get some treats for him, and my mom calls my dad. He doesn't say anything since we're in the store, we just get what we need and go.
Then in the car he tells me that mom had called saying my sister, Kristen was freaking out because my rabbit was having some sort of seizure, and now he wasn't moving, and they think he had died.
And sure enough, he did die.
I wish he could have had a nice, peaceful death. Not one where his eye was swollen and he couldn't fucking blink and he has a fucking seizure. I'm not going to have anymore rabbits since Adrenaline is gone now. Not for a long time. I wish I could have done something more at the time.
At least his life beforehand was nice.....
If you excuse me I'm going to continue eating on this carton of ice cream.
