poor zack

Man this sucks. Something is wrong with Zack, and i have no clue. He's lost a ton of weight, pretty quickly too. He eats, a little at a time. I've tried baby food, something me and my ex tried with Alex when he had an abscess in his jaw. Worried it's something like that, because i'm not sure how that turned out, and the vet said his was too bad to operate on, and he probably wouldn't survive that. I'm also worried there is a cancer or something. I have no idea. He's so tiny, he used to be so pudgy and such. Now when i hold him he's so fragile feeling. He's still strong, as he tries to get down and pushes my hand and arm out of the way. He's an awesome bunny, and i wish he could just tell me whats wrong, and how to help him. Tomorrow he goes to the vet, hopefully it's something easy to fix and he will be back to old zack again. I'm terrified i'll have to choose between him just getting worse or putting him to sleep. I don't know if i could make that decision. I don't want him to suffer, but i also swore i would never hurt him or let anyone else do so.

I'm also worried about Kitty, her and Zack are bonded and great together. She doesn't get along with any of the others, in fact they fight a lot if together. I'm worried she will get depressed without Zack. I've seen that, so don't pretend animals don't miss companions when they pass.

This is the worst part of having pets, and loving them so damn much.

Unless you have one of those pets that live much longer than we do, that's a whole other problem.
