We’ve had a sad time at the Sunny House.
We said goodby to our Mama Bunny last week. We cried and hugged her and thanked her for all the gifts she has given us… She was our first family pet. We remembered how excited we had been when, on Kitty’s 5th Birthday, we had found her waiting for us in the living room with a big red bow tied around her cage. We smiled at how beautiful it had felt to cuddle a rabbit for the first time. We remembered how we had hated to see her in her small hutch and that we had agreed to let her loose in the back yard. How happy she had been to be free. We laughed at how mad I’d become when she ate all of my newly planted flowers. We remembered when she had appeared one day with a teeny tiny little baby in tow. How she had let us be a part of nursing him. How she had taught him to love us too. We remembered all of these beautiful things she has given us over the years as we laid her to rest in the grave in the garden.
Kitty has tended her grave daily, dusting off the gravestone and making sure the little vase is full of fresh roses. We marvel at how Baby Bunbuns is never very far from his moms grave… we often see him nestled peacefully in the cool soil next to her stick cross.
Many of you loved this story of Mama BunBuns and Baby BunBuns.
And this update where you can see them nursing.
As Kitty’s gravestone reads… “Bunbuns, RIP… we love you”
Blessings and magic,
