It's ZuZu, as some of you may know. She is the most photogenic rabbit at the shop. She is not, however, the subject of this post. Violet has taken center stage among the bunnies. She has come home with me every night for the last ten days. She has an ulcer in her left eye that also has glacouma and a cataract. There will be no recent photos of her here. Not only is her eye distressed, but she is also moulting. She would not, if she were human, be pleased to be photographed in her present state.
We have seen the eye specialist and she will start on special drops that are being mailed from South Carolina. There is calicification in her eye which the drops should help dissolve. If this treatment doesn't help heal the ulcer, she'll have to have her eye removed. She is also old which could compromise the result of the surgery. I am happy to report, however, that she has been a lively and adaptable patient. Even though she hates riding in the car, she has settled on the top of the catalytic converter, in the back of the Element where she stretches out and relaxes, even over the bumps.
Here she is at her loveliest: a bit fat and soft as velvet.
