      On one occasion when I took my boybun outside for brushing, my elderly neighbor, Kate, waved from her lawnchair, so I, covered in fur from head to toe, carried the little prince over for Kate to see. She was too frail to hold a 13-pound rabbit, so I’d hold him for her while she stroked him, and she’d laugh when clouds of fur would roll off of him. Her own ancient little doggie had died the year before and she missed having an animal companion. She spoke fondly of the pet rabbits she and her family had for many years; so, after that, I made a point of taking the bun over to visit.

      Kate died recently after breaking her hip. She was 96 and fell down her basement steps. I like to imagine Kate reunited with her loved ones, including the animals. Perhaps she’ll recognize a certain large rabbit who visited her sometimes, whose fur used to fly across several yards. I hope she gives him a nose rub for me.

      So, let’s remember Kate, who loved loved and cared for rabbits and dogs. May we all live a life with fur in our faces.

      I know Kate has met all her past furbabies at the Rainbow Bridge and they are all together and whole again.

      That’s really sweet. You probably made her so much happier just by doing that. It’s nice to see someone so old having a fulfilling life… enjoying the outdoors and even feeling powerful enough to venture down to the basement although this time it ended in tragedy.

      That’s a lovely tribute and thing you did for your neighbour. A great age to live to – my own Nanna is that age to and also fondly remembers her childhood pets. They have an impact for life. I like the last line you posted: May we all live with fur in our faces! Amen!

      It’s really lovely of you to memorialize her here. I’m sure she’d be pleased.
      In Yiddish there’s an expression, you “dinna mitzvah” which means you did a service or a gift-and act of generosity. Bringing your bunny to see her most definitely brightened her final days. They are used in therapy with visits to nursing homes for just that reason. Something rewarding you might consider in the future, by the way.
      I work with a staff of volunteers including some folks in their late 80s and 90s, and they love their animals and interacting with us young people. When I’m that age I hope someone as nice as you brings me a daily visit from a bunny, too.

      Well, I hadn’t heard that expression before, but yep, I’m Jewish. Reformed – (very minimally practicing.)

      Just nicely influenced by your grandparents, then. I was thinking of naming my futurebunny Tzippor/ah instead of Bird. But Bird is so much better.

      What a beautiful tribute to your friend. I’m sorry to hear she passed. That was very kind of you to share your bun with her, I am sure it made her happy and brought back pleasant memories…
