I loved Annabel and Hazel very dearly and only wish I could redo that day. They were a part of my life for over five years, almost six.
Here they are:
I need to get out of the funk I'm in. I'm quite an emotional person so I've been crying every day and dreaming about them. I had their picture framed to put on my wall and my cat Winnie out of nowhere climbed onto the table and stared at the picture for a good minute. It was so strange but such a beautiful moment as she loved the bunnies too.
I only hope that my story can be a reminder of just how fragile our bunnies and other pets are, especially in such extreme weather circumstances.
This has affected me deeply. I still see their brand new hutch that my dad built just sitting empty outside. I cut up carrots for dinner and didn't have any bunnies to give the scraps to. I wondered if I would still buy carrots in bulk.
Each day gets a teensy bit easier. I'm waiting for my mum to get back from holidays so I can call her and have a good cry to her over the phone. Maybe after then the healing will begin.
This post is dedicated to Annabel and Hazel (2008-2014).
