Ghostly Pet


I live in Melbourne, as you know rabbits are permitted in Melbourne. I have a love pet story. Nina, belonging to me previously. Nina was accidently killed by my dog as a puppy (he was playing with her and no blood was spilled, literally)

Nina was and is my baby still. I think I should let her go but is hard. Nina was my first rabbit and I have had rabbits after her but it was never the same. We had a connection and did everything together. Read books, TV or just chilling. Everything, so you can expect when she got out and Jack got her I bawled for days. My sister got more rabbits but I didn't touch them, I didn't even look at them. Anyway on to my ghost story.

Every night at exactly midnight Nina appears in my room. We chill, cuddle and sleep. But every time I wake up she is gone. I cry for a while but then go back to sleep. My family thinks I am crazy but I know what I see, she feels real. Her fur is soft and black whilst her heart beats like a normal rabbit, but I get depressed when I think about it. I love her but I don't know if I should let her go.

She is coming down tonight as well and I am at school typing this, freaking out if anyone see's this. I guess the correct term here would be some advice.

Any advice, do I keep her my secret forever or do I let her go?

Thanks guys, and even this seem more spiritual then ghostly but she can be a bad rabbit sometimes.

I am sorry for your loss 😢
He is probably out of a lot of pain now though 😊

He wasn't in pain until the very end. It was literally like he was dying in pain and then he stopped and went to sleep and died in his sleep. He wasn't actually doing that for more than an hour.

Well, thank you for all your comments and it has helped. I am letting her go tonight, she will always be in my heart but I need to do what is best for her, holding onto her like this refrains her from living in her after-life.
Thank you everyone for your help
[at] Redphx my aunties cat was twenty when she died, bout a few weeks ago. My cousin says she hears her sleeping on her bed sometimes purring too. 😊 ❤

Hi MaddyMasacar, I know how you feel. My dog died last week. He was the centre of my life he was only 7years old. I'm still grieving and crying. This is something that is going to take time, don't be hard on yourself. The hurt don't go away, but we learn to live with it. I'm sorry for the lost of your baby. I burn a candle every day for Seuntjie still, but I gave him the freedom to go to God.
Animals actually belong to God of course, we just look after them! God says" Every animal is mine... I know every bird, and the creatures of the field" Psalm 50:10,11.
I believe the right thing to do is to give your loving pet the right to go to heaven and to go and sit on Gods' lap and to enjoy His kingdom until we see them again someday. Pray for your pet and tell him or her that it's ok to go to God now. Get peace in your heart and let your baby get peace too.
Good luck, and take care-do the right thing.

sweet, you need to let go, for both you and nina - have a look at a web page 'rainbow bridge' you will find a lot of like minded people there who can help you with the grief, moving on, and doing her memory honour. Xx ❤you can also set up her own spot in 'heaven' etc xx

have to agree with the others on this time to let go for both of you. Yes it will be hard but you have to ask nina to let you get over her passing let her know she is always welcome but her visiting you every night is hurting you when she is gone again. I feel for your loss, a pet is hard to loose

i have never personally heard of a full body appiration before in the form of a animal. I am not saying that I don't believe you only that I am open minded and am willing to believe with proof. If the spirit is real and not your imagination good for you, you get to keep your pet even after it has passed. I wouldn't tell anyone unless things begin to become strange or violent. If things stay the way they are though well then you are a very lucky person for being able to keep your favorite pet, and if it is real one reason it may of come back is to help you deal with the grief of losing it, I'm not certain but I think that its possible just have a good time with it as long as you can. 😁

I did not sound to me, like redphx's experience with her cat's passing last for an extended period of time. Pets do lose there eyesight and decline from their previous conditions, but can still carry on without being in pain. It sounds like the convulsions and pain were limited to the time just before he passed. I did not get the impression he was forced to suffer.

Question to redphx. My condolences for your lost. A relationship with a cat is a wonderful thing. But... If your cat was in pain, and having a hard time, wouldn't it have more humane having him put down than let him scream and go into convulsions? As much as we love our pets, just reading your comment made me cringe. I couldn't imagine putting my cat through that that. Since obviously I wasn't there to know what went on, it just sounds horrible the way your cat died. Maybe he was just wailing... I don't know. For MaddyMasacar: As nice it is to have your pet spirit with you, you need to let go. By hanging onto your grief, your pet won't be able to move on... And neither will you. You must be able to let this grief go, and move ahead with your life. Remember the good times, then move on. In time, things will get better. Of course you won't have a connection with any other rabbit like you did with Nina. Every relationship is different and never the same. Who's to know that the next pet just might be special, too? IF you can let this one go. My condolences for your lost.

You need to let her go. It is very hard. My cat died a year ago, he was 17. He was dying of old age. We had to put him in the laundrey room because he was decaying and it was ruining the carpet. I was sitting on my couch and I heard him screaming. I went into the laundrey room at sat with him. He was almost blind at this point. He was trying to walk but he couldn't. He was having convulsions and he was trying so hard to live. I had to tell him it was ok to go. I had to tell him he could move on. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. He was just trying so hard to live. I would leave the room and he would start screaming for me to come back. Everytime I went in there I said it was ok to go and he was loved and I said goodbeye. After I told him that he went to sleep and died. I loved that cat. I had him since I was 6 years old for 17 years. He was my baby. But I had to let him go. He does visit every now and then. The other night infact he jumped into my bed and I could hear him purring. I didn't want to let him go but I had to. It would have been selfish for me to try and keep him here. His spirit has other journeys that he has to do. You have to let her go. She will visit and perhaps even come back to you in another form. I am very sorry for you loss. I do understand what it means to lose someone so close to you. Hell I was more devastated when my cat died than my grandpa. She needs to do other things and she does love you.

I reckon that you should try and let her go. You know that Nina is there with you, so you will never be alone. I just think its unhealthy for you to not let go. But, grieve in your own time. Pets leave a big pawprint on our hearts.
And sorry about you losing Nina.
Love & Light, Rachel ❤
