Members' rabbits Remembrance Roll 2014

The very worst part about having pets is losing them. Sometimes they have been our companions for just a short time, other times they have been our companions for many years. Whatever the situation, losing them can be very hard and often difficult to get over. This part of the website is dedicated to those rabbits who enriched our lives and have gone to live over Rainbow Bridge...

Rainbow Bridge (author unknown)

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal, any kind of animal, dies that has been especially close to someone , that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill or old are restored to good health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, someone who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

If you have lost a rabbit and need someone to talk to who will understand your grief, please remember that the RWAF provides a pet bereavement counselling service to members. So do please contact us if you feel you need to and we hope to help make these hard times a little easier.

"I don't know how I would have coped without your support line. No matter how many times I rang, often hysterical and incoherent, I was never made to feel a nuisance. Whilst family and friends could not find the time for me, the voice at the end of the help line never let me down."

Miniver - April 7th 2014

Miniver

Miniver. Our beautiful rabbit who died on Monday 7th April. She was less than a year old. We loved her so much though she hated to be touched. She was so elegant and composed.

I want her back.

Pickle - March 2014

Pickle

My darling Pickle

Words will never be able to explain the sadness and heartache from your sudden passing last weekend. You were my entire world and a piece of me has been taken with you.

While your unexpected passing came as a huge shock to Mummy, Daddy and Harvey Rabbit, it is a relief to me that you could not have been in pain for long. You were your usual self just hours before. I'm so glad we were all with you at the end.

We have 6 years of happy memories with you, and not a day goes by that we don't think of and miss you, but I know you are happy, binkying and reunited with your husbun, Sam.

See you again at Rainbow Bridge, Princess x






Frank, Monday 10 March 2014

Frank

In memory of Frank who passed away on Monday 10 March 2014. Little Frank was the cheeky black bunny of my two and was soul mates with Freddie, his older companion.

I adopted them both in September 2011 and Frank was always full of energy and loved to lie in the sun. They both adored one another and I won't forget Frank's beautiful silky coat and cheeky personality.

Sleep tight my little man and I know you will love it at rainbow bridge.


Tommy, March 2014

Tommy

In memory of Tommy (white & brown) My monster who I had to say goodbye to just 5 short weeks after your missus Bambam(brown) had to leave us.

I got Tommy from the local rescue and couldn't believe how shy he was, until he got with Bambam then all hell broke loose.

You quickly earned the name 'the hooligans' usually following Bambam into trouble but just as often it would be you leading. Brother Jester n sister Snuffles will miss you too. But we're all happy in the knowledge the Hooligans are reunited and causing chaos at rainbow bridge.

Love you my little boy.

Xxx play happy


Freckle, 3rd March 2014

Freckle

It is with deepest sadness that I find myself writing to you about my rabbit, Freckle, following his untimely death in the early hours of Monday morning.

He was the most adorable, loving bunny that I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I loved looking after him and feeding him every morning, he brought a smile to my face every time I saw him and his enthusiasm for life was contagious. His cuddles were amazing and he was much more to me than just a rabbit.

Freckle died very suddenly and it is a relief to me knowing that he didn t suffer and hadn t been in any pain. He had been out in the garden enjoying the sunshine on Saturday, which he loved to do and had his usual fill of treats, a pleasure he always looked forward to at the weekend.

He will be deeply missed but never forgotten.


Norton, 10th February 2014

Norton

Norton, my lovely little boy bun passed away on 10th Feb 2014 aged almost 3.

We loved how you sat with your ears relaxed on to your back, how you ate the carpets, wallpaper, door frames and walls.

We loved how you came scampering in when I called 'teatime!', how you did 3 circuits of the lounge when it was treat time.

We miss you sitting on the mat by the back door, letting me know you wanted your breakfast served there.

We miss you stretched out like a big sausage on the carpet under the radiator.

We miss you terribly Norton, binky free my gorgeous boy xx


Bambam, February 2014

Bambam

In memory of Bambam(brown) my little miss trouble. Thank you for 9 wonderful years. Missed by husband Tommy(white n brown), sister Snuffles and brother Jester.

I was chosen by Bambam when she was just 8 weeks old along with a little sister called Pebbles who passed away at 2 years old. Bambam you where so miserable without her I decided to take you dating at the local rescue where after a couple of mr wrongs you met Tommy. It was love at first sight and within 3 weeks you were known as Mr and Mrs hooligan, where there was 1 the other wouldn't be far behind usually you leading and Tommy following. Sadly old age started to catch you up and we had to say goodnight. Reunited with pebbles at rainbow bridge.

Love you my little girl.
Xxx play happy.


Finnegan, January 24th 2014

My darling bunny, Finnegan passed away in my arms at 5.20 pm on 24.01.14. He would have been 9 in March. I had him aged 10 months from my local rescue.

He was a lovely, friendly bun who loved a fuss and liked having his face stroked. He started to have trouble hopping last Summer; the vet diagnosed arthritis in his hips, so he had metacam daily. He gradually got worse until he could only do a sort of front shuffle. I had him in the house towards the end, we'd have a cuddle and he'd lick my hand.

He left behind his 3rd wife - Katy and friends Mal and Dante guinea pigs and me his heartbroken Mum.

I love you mate and we'll be together again one day. xxx
