the end of an era

the man and woman left Leafty in his favourite nook under Bak Bak's chin yesterday morning. that was their last memory of Leafty. he left us during the day.

it was his look of peace and quiet dignity that consoled the woman. the albino dwarf rabbit who arrived from spca with pee stains on his snow coat lived his life with his heart wide open and left it the same way, deeply connected to everyone around him. even ailing, he did for the kitten no less than what he had done for countless others before him. for Bak Bak, he showed that the cat's instinct to withdraw from the sense of our own weakness is no way to live at all.

and so your work here is done. rest now, little one.

Tuxedo stood by as the woman said her final goodbyes to that small bundle of love. Bak Bak has not gone back to the spot he shared these months with his special friend.

I am sorry that leafty has gone to the bridge. Have a good hop up there Leafy where the grounds are vast and the love infinite.

Leafy left in peace. That's the best thing that can happen to him now. Take care. I know it's never easy to lose a loved one.

OOOooo.

I am so sorry to hear about this. But when they go in peace, you realise how much they know they are loved.

Perhaps it makes it all the more worth our while.

RIP Leafty.

Take care Animal Family; Leafty has indeed been very special. Please monitor Bak Bak as he grieves for his karmic friend.

I'm sorry for your loss but not sorry for Leafy, who was so well-loved by his family. He is one fortunate rabbit.
