Even though we haven't spent much physical time together, I know all I need to know about these women by the way they love their bunnies. In my mind, anyone who is willing to share with the world how much they love the long-eared is a gem.
What is it about bunnies that brings people together? Maybe it's that so many people don't understand how amazing rabbits are. They don't know how loving they are, or that they have their own little personalities, just like dogs and cats. They've never seen a binky or had a rabbit kiss them on the face.
Likewise, they've never known the complete and utter heartbreak of losing one of these precious creatures. When I lost my Hemingway almost a year ago, my "bunny friends" understood what I was going through. None of them said to me "It's just a rabbit," or "you can get another one." They understood that Hem could never be replaced, even though I could open my heart and home to other bunnies. Today, they understand that there's still a hole in my heart that will never be filled by any other bunny because Hemingway was one of a kind.
The ladies who lost their bunnies understand what I went through, and I want them to know that I understand what they're feeling now. Alex, Fitzi, Paddington and I are sending so much love their way - as are my two "visitor" bunnies, Seraphina and Bianca (more about them in a future post).
I completely believe that Catherine "Picklez" and Huddy are doing binkies with my beloved Hemingway on the Rainbow Bridge today, and I hope that the humans who loved and cherished them soon find peace.
