Tofu Tuesday: Another day in the grass

Tofu hasn’t been well over the last few days. He was great for a few months but over the last weekend he became messy in the undercarriage and looked very uncomfortable. In September he had his bladder flushed and a course of meds. A bottom shaved helped keep things in check too. Since then, things have looked pretty good until the end of last week.

Not only had we switched to the vet recommended pellets but we’ve cut portions severely over the last 5 months. In the last week or so he has eaten only a handful of pellets as we’re trying to encourage hay and fresh greens instead. He will not eat hay if  a full pellet bowl awaits him.

His appetite has been pretty normal and he has been drinking water. He still enjoys around 10 hours a day roaming free in the backyard and snuggles with us in the evenings (and some mornings). On Sunday, he even jumped up onto the couch for a snuggle which is quite a feat for a sick, blind rabbit. Despite two bunny baths over the weekend he wasn’t coping so The Koala and I took him to the vet  yesterday. He stayed at the vet last night but thankfully the vet seemed confident that they would find what ails him and they will run some tests today to confirm if it’s more bladder issues.

Here’s a photo of him last week, still happy and playing in the grass. Actually he was quite happy playing in the grass yesterday when I scooped him up before going to the vet.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.

    All good wishes to our favorite bunny on your side of the world (and to his humans too).
    Be well, little Tofu~ lots more grass to enjoy.

  2. I hope Tofu gets better quickly! In an ideal world, animals would be able to tell us what’s wrong with them. Wishing you all all the best.
