This morning I took my rabbit Mr.Uma to the vet for his routine examination. I can't say he is in his best condition, terrible malocclusion has caused many disorders, he also has some mysterious tumors. I and the vet has agreed that he won't perform surgery on Mr.Uma any more for he is too old for general anesthesia, and the vet cuts his overgrown teeth and gives him some medicines every time. Though Mr.Uma does well for his not-perfect condition, he eats well and poop properly, sometimes jumps onto my lap to get the treat :)
But yes he is an old rabbit now. He has disliked to be on my lap very much, never be held when he was young. Now he is OK when I lift him into my arms, today he has stayed on my lap meekly for hours when I watched DVD. His aging gives him some calmness which gives me some quiet happiness.
Dear small animals have the shorter life than ours though they give us many things. I just appreciate them very much.
