To Nala, the bunny who defied the world:
From the moment I laid eyes on you, I fell in love with you. You were not Siege’s first pick but you were mine. You were the first one I took out of your cage (without the approval of the shop owner), and I never let you go even after we considered other bunnies. I held you in my arms on our way home even when we were provided a box carrier. I knew you’d have a special place in my life.
You can’t imagine the trouble you’ve caused me. My life went upside down because I defied an order not to take in anymore animals. But I felt like you were worth all the sacrifices, and I was right. You were the sweetest, smartest and most special bunny I’ve ever met. You were everything I’ve ever wanted in a bunny, and more.Everyone who met you just fell in love with you. You’ve touched my life in ways you can’t imagine.
You didn’t bend to what society demanded of you. You questioned the rules I’ve set you, you’ve defied the norms of normal rabbits. You lived life the way you wanted to, ate what you wanted, acted how you wanted, looked how you wanted. You weren’t just a bunny. You were bigger than life. And I’ve always loved that about you.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I will miss you. I miss you already. There won’t be anymore bunny french kisses. No more chasing around and pushing your fat face away when I’m having meals. No more biting on my butt when I don’t pay you attention. No more jumping on my lap to demand pet and cuddles. No more bunny belly smooshes. No more bunny dress ups and pictorials. No more bunny wake up alarms that involve hair nibbling, chest pawing and body trampoline. No more mind boggling habits that defy bunny logic. I don’t have to wonder anymore why you want to eat my porkchop, or why you’re trying to nibble on the loose quills I’ve collected or why you’re ignoring the fruits and veggies I’ve given you but chase after me when I’m eating chocolate cake. Everything about you was so silly but so adorable.
And now I have to say the last of my goodbyes. Thank you for all the happy memories. Thank you for all the goofy and silly things you’ve done to me and with me. Thank you for sharing your short life with me. And thank you for reviving for just a few seconds after I’ve given you CPR just to give me a nose twitch and a bunny smile. I will never forget you. You will always be Nala, my kitty bunny, who made the world smile.
