He has been looking fine for a few months, but he doesn’t use the toilet often. The level difference with the toilet might be tight. The height of the circle and cage is also equipped with a slope to reduce the level difference.
Caesar was eating grass, pellets, and snacks in a balanced manner, but overall the amount he ate was less than before and he was thin. The first thing he ate less was the number of pellets, and then less grass. In the old days, when the activity of the intestines was bad, if he ate the best cut of premium timothy with a lot of fiber, he would recover. If that doesn’t work, I used a dropper to do forced feeding, but this time, it was totally powerless.
On the morning of the 22nd, the rabbit could not even sit and was lying down. I thought it would be more comfortable on the towel, but he wanted to lie down on the wooden floor. He passed away. I don’t know if it was painful. He seemed to have passed away quietly. At this time of the year, his body will deteriorate soon, so I wiped his lightly dirty bottom and body, put it in a plastic bag, and put him in the refrigerator.
It was my first time to have a pet funeral, so I didn’t know well. I had my pet cremated at a pet crematorium near my house. I had the impression that it was a small facility, but the staff treated me kindly, so I could have his bones safely.
The firepower is not as strong as that of a human cremation. If you grill it with a strong fire, the bones won’t remain. When I did some checking, I was impressed that some municipalities have excellent municipal crematoriums for pets. I wonder if there is no pet crematorium in the 23 wards of Tokyo. But it is possible to collect dead animals, but it is treated as garbage collection. Of course, it is not possible to return the remains.
I chose my favorite orange color with a rabbit pattern on the cover of the bone pot. Although it was a funeral for my pet, I was given some salt, I went home and purified myself in front of the entrance. (In Japan, there is a custom of sprinkling salt on the body to purify the body after the funeral and expel evil spirits. This is based on the idea of Shintoism, and it does not regard the deceased as an impurity, but rather, it comes from the exorcism of the evil that caused death.) I received a charm of a cat’s eye stone from the staff of the funeral hall.
I got a cat a year ago. I would be really sorry if that became stress for rabbits and shortened his life span. They were quite isolated, and the kittens weren’t bad enough to mess with the rabbits, but the rabbit might have been concerned about the fact that a different creature would come later and roam the room. I wondered if he could live to be about 15 years old. It’s not a pet loss, but I don’t feel like doing anything for a while. There is a cat, so the shock might be reduced, but it is a delicate point. Cats and rabbits are totally different.
From here down is Caesar when he was well. I feel that vitality is more in the eyes of the past. Thank you for giving me 11 years of fun.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
