It’s been over a week (Sept 4th) since we lost our beloved pet of 10+ years – Pete. It’s truly amazing how large of an impact these little guys have on a family, creeping their way into every facet of your life and the hole the leave behind is just as big. Every morning I get up, I still look for him to meet me in the kitchen for his morning plate of veggies. In the evenings, I expect to see him sitting under a chair and at bedtime – well, that was treat time and he’d come running.
Pete lived a long life, as I mentioned earlier, 10+ years. That’s an awfully long time for a rabbit and our vet was amazed by his age and health, which I took to mean, we did a good job with him. Earlier this year it was discover Pete had cancer – he had an operation to remove a growth in his chest, but the vet wasn’t very optimistic. It took a long time for him to recover from the surgery and in truth, there were days where I worried a lot. But thankfully after 6 weeks, he was back to his-self , running around, getting into things and even developed a fascination for going outside and lying down on the front porch. We had a great couple of months together and are so thankful for that extra time he spent with us.
We love you Pete and we miss you terribly.
