Poor little bunny

Today, after I warned my son repeatedly that if he wanted a rabbit he had to clean and feed it, I checked on it. It wasn’t just dead, it was dead and rotting in a pool of its own pee and faeces. I yelled at him, but he just shrugged and told me rabbits are boring and he forgot it was even there. FML

I don’t blame the kid, I blame the parent. Any responsible parent would have been checking up on the rabbit every day to make sure that the kid isn’t neglecting it. Poor rabbit suffered because it was brought into a messed up home with irresponsible adults.

So before I can blame the kid, the age would be helpful. If the kid is under 10 it's the parents fault. By 10 the kid should know how to take care of himself and an animal. I don't know if it is still normal though for kids to be responsible at that age though.

you know what, i'm gonna blame both of you. my 7 year old wouldn't be this uncaring about the life of an animal in her care so yes, that is concerning, BUT

the way you phrase it little hopper wasn't frolicking around yesterday and suddenly just dropped dead without warning.

you bought this living being for your son to take care of. you obviously weren't sure this would work out, your phrasing makes this very clear.

as the adult in this scenario you had the duty to supervise your son and if necessary take care of the animals needs. i wouldn't even have blamed you for giving it to a shelter or something like this, but putting a living being into the care of someone you yourself have doubts is fit to care for its well being and than not supervising the whole thing is on you and the poor animal had to pay the price for YOUR irresponsibility

If neither you nor your son are willing to put in the work of caring for an animal then you give it up to an animal shelter or sanctuary, not let it fucking die. YDI to the both of you. You both need to seek therapy for apathy towards life.

Didn't you even think to check on the rabbit even once? What about the food? He can't buy the food & you obviously were not & that didn't trigger an alarm? Bad kid? Not really.....bad parent? Absolutely! That poor rabbit suffered & died in a pool of it's blood & urine. That had to take weeks!! WOW!
