When she goes to visit, no bunnies are found. Chloe asks other animals if they’ve seen any of her kind. Rat and the cardinals have not. Professor Pigeon stated that the bunnies might be extinct like some of the other animals in the museum. When Chloe visited raccoon he simply thought they left for greener grasses. While eating some rose petals Chloe noticed the gardener speaking to her. The gardener mentioned a mysterious plague. Is this what happened to Chloe’s family?
