Our dear Opal passed away December 20, 2007. Of course it affected my son worst of all. He's almost eight and had never really been confronted with death before. He cried off and on all day while I was at work. His dad tried his best to distract him but its hard when there is an empty cage right there in front of you. We only had about 6 months with her and it was a hard six months. She was never really potty trained and she was always real jumpy. Opal would toss her food out after eating only a few bites and for a long time, she would only eat hay. In the end, I think it was all the little quirks about her that made us so attached to her even when we thought she was the most difficult of the three. I miss her and hope she is in a happy field with other bunnies and plenty of hay.
