Sadness and Memory

We lost Baby on the 26th of September.  It wasn’t exactly sudden – she had been sick for a while – but no matter what anyone says you can never truly be prepared or ready for it.

Her absence has affected our entire family.  I was in the habit of checking on her every time I went back to the bathroom…that continued for a while.  We finally rearranged the bedroom, which helped some.   Rabbits aren’t noisy pets, but still the apartment seems so very quiet without her.

Shelly accepted it pretty quickly and got really, really depressed.  She’d lay under the dining room table with her head hung over one of the slats and just…stare off into space.  Malice looked for her for a long time.  I’m still not sure she truly understands. But she sleeps in Baby’s favorite spot most nights.

Of course, it was hardest on Alex.  He’d had Baby since she’d been a tiny Baby.  Some friends of his found her while exploring in the woods, all alone, her family dead.  So they picked her up and brought her to him and Chewie to take care of.

Look how tiny she was!

Who knew that this cute little baby, dubbed Little Baby Bunny, would grow up to be a big, bossy, cat-loving, craisin-stealing, book-chomping, hat-wearing, bundle of joy?

She loved willow baskets.

When Chewie was sick and Alex had to assist feed him, this is how we entertained ourselves.
