Thank you all for your prayers. I believe it has been answered one way or another. As I was preparing the pineapple juice, Seychel was already at her last lap of battle. She was very weak and I noticed something that gave me a reason believe that it was not G.I. Stasis.
It was very clear today that Seychel was having difficulty breathing. She was breathing through her mouth as I noticed her tilting her head upwards. I thought that my pineapple juice would be given in vain and I believe by using the syringe it would clog up her breathing passage further. By then she was struggling to sit upright.
I held her in my arms for a couple of minutes and she started to go into convulsion, let out a squek and breath her last.
As many articles have written, fur block or G.I. Stasis is caused by an underlying problem. There was a reason why Seychel wasn’t eating and drinking. There are too many possibilities ranging from respiratory problems to even heart attack. Whatever it is I would like to put a rest to all the speculation and allow her to rest in peace. The only consolation I have is that, at least she was in my arms when she breath her last and no one else had to go through this pain except for me.
Good bye my dear Seychel, I prayed that you will get well and indeed you got much more than I prayed for. Send my regards to Unix, Micro, Latara and all the little TLR bunnies at rainbow bridge. Love you lots!
Beth will miss you but at least she have this photo to remember
Void & Emptiness is what I feel at this very moment
I miss you loads!
TLR is broken…
Truffles turn 6 months today while Seychel will be 6 months in 12 days time.
I always catch Little Seychel sitting upright in her cage and at certain angles, she’s really pretty. It would be perfect if her ears are a little shorter. I wish I had the DSLR today because she was posing for me. Anyhow, here’s a photo captured with the regular camera.
I am so proud of my own breedings at the moment. These 2 kits are cool! Oops, no longer kits, they are both grown ups now!
In case you didn’t know, Seychel is a broken chocolate doe. Hope to get nice solid chocolates from her!
I thought it was a nice day to take photos of Seychel as she is coming out of her baby fur molt. Then came Beth walking pass after her “marketing” play pretend session. We all know that it takes many years of experience to be a qualified rabbit judge. I guess Beth’s starting really young. Here’s what happened in pictorial mode:

Good girl, Sea Shell!
In the end she concluded that although Seychel is not perfect, she loves her as much!
hug tight tight!
I love you....
On a serious note, Seychel is not the perfect brood specimen but I will be using her in my chocolate project nonetheless. By the looks of it, she seemed to have the characteristics of an F1 choc Holland Lop. Whatever it is, she deserves a chance to be a brood doe.

Seychel was scheduled for spaying in July and then passed on to her new owner Farah a week after that. Due to the reason that I needed another brood doe for the rabbitry, I had a little discussion with Farah and she ended up offering me to keep Seychel instead.
I am truly grateful to Farah for her understanding and I am very happy to be able to keep Seychel with me.
Thanks a million Farah!
Seychel is definitely pet quality and to top it off, she is in the ‘UGLIES’ stage and going through a molt. The only thing I like about this girl is her color.
The only thing good about the long ears is that they showcase the nice chocolate color
Nice & Clean
These are some photos taken today. 8th Day olds versus 20th Day old. Such huge difference!
I still love seeing children together with baby animals.
