Members' rabbits Remembrance Roll 2017

The very worst part about having pets is losing them. Sometimes they have been our companions for just a short time, other times they have been our companions for many years. Whatever the situation, losing them can be very hard and often difficult to get over. This part of the website is dedicated to those rabbits who enriched our lives and have gone to live over Rainbow Bridge...

Rainbow Bridge (author unknown)

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal, any kind of animal, dies that has been especially close to someone , that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill or old are restored to good health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, someone who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

If you have lost a rabbit and need someone to talk to who will understand your grief, please remember that the RWAF provides a pet bereavement counselling service to members. So do please contact us if you feel you need to and we hope to help make these hard times a little easier.

"I don't know how I would have coped without your support line. No matter how many times I rang, often hysterical and incoherent, I was never made to feel a nuisance. Whilst family and friends could not find the time for me, the voice at the end of the help line never let me down."

Our little Wilbs 2017


Wilbur never heard the fox approach as he lay in the garden. He put up a fight, our big brave boy, but died at the vets earlier today.

He was a true outdoors bun, grumpy at times but sun loving and cheeky.

We placed his body next to his bun friend Boris who spent some time circling and grooming him; later moving away

We'll miss our little man.

Flopsey 2017


I have lost my lovey rabbit called Flopsey who was my son rabbit.

She was only 3 mths when we got her and she passed away 4 weeks ago.

She was such a friend to us all bless her she only had 3 legs after having a accident.

She had the most wonderful life. She had the run of the garden and also had her own shed full of toys and a lovley warm bed.

She became really poorly on the Thursday so took her to the vets and they checked her over and gave her antibotics which did seemed to help but after 2 days she went downhill my husband took her back to the vets.She and she passed away in his arms.When he came back I had to sit the kids down and explain what had happened. Every day I cry and cry and miss her so much (if one more person says to me it's only a rabbit i will scream)she was my baby.

I miss her very much.x

Peter 2017


Dearest Peter, You were the light of our lives and gave us so much joy and unconditional love whilst you were with us.

Adopting you was one of the best decisions we have ever made and to anyone who wants to adopt, please do.

You will always have a place in my heart Peter and have taken a piece of my heart with you. Thank you for teaching me so much and getting me to learn all about your kind. Thank you for cuddling up to me when I was poorly, and for sitting by me whilst I read.

I'll miss you so much. You were one of the greatest companions I could have ever wished for.

I thought we would have had so much more time. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet boy xxx

Alice Gilbert (29th Aug 2015 - 25th Jan 2017)


Our wee Alice joined us in November 2015 at just 12 weeks old. Alice was a very cute bundle of white mischief with a squidgy black nose and twinkly brown eyes. She was quickly nick named twinkle toes.

It took a long time and lots of patience to bond Rory and Alice. However in April 2016 whilst on holiday in Suffolk it just happened and Rory and Alice became bosom buddies - they adored each other and were inseparable.

Alice was a very inquisitive rabbit and was devoted to Rory. She groomed Rory daily and encouraged him to eat healthily. They would follow each other around and liked nothing more than snuggling up together in front of the fire snoozing.

Sadly on the 25th January 2017 Fiona came home from work and found that Alice had died, Rory was snuggled up to her and grooming her ears.

Alice brought lots of fun, joy and sparkle into our lives for the short time she was with us and also gave Rory a new lease of life in his senior years.

Night night wee Alice we will miss you
Rory, Fiona & Nick

Mo 5th December 2016


To my darling wonderful unique and much loved little princess Mo. I can't believe that you are no longer with us I never for one moment thought that the day would come when you left for the bridge but unfortunately that day came on 5th December 2016 when you went to the vet's for a dental and never came home.

You were the boss whatever you wanted you got and I would gladly have swopped places with you if I had thought that you would go. I have your painting on the wall and your ashes next to me and I miss you as much today as the day you left.

I hope that you have met up with your friend Maxie and having a ball.

Come back and visit me sometime, all my love my little Momo xxx

My Beautiful Little Bunny Lola


You filled our lives with so much joy, I knew when I first saw you I had to have you! You were such a character, playing with the dogs, showing who's boss!! I think they are really going to miss you! Just like me. I really am going to miss letting you out in the morning and you lying in the living room chilling with the boys!! I will miss the licks that you used to give me on the nose and when you used to jump up for tickles, and get under my feet when you wanted food.. I'm just happy that you had a lovely life and we got to spend time together.

I love you Lola my sweet beautiful Furball! RIP in peace my darling. Rupert and Bugs are waiting for you! Xxx

Lily 10th January 2017


On Tuesday 10th January I had to say goodbye to my darling Lily G.

Lily was found wandering the street and taken to BARC. After a couple of failed bonding attempts, I was the lucky to adopt Lily in November 2015 where once settled, she became one of the friendliest cuddliest bunnies I've ever met.

My darling girl I only got to love you for 13 months but in that time you stole my heart repeatedly.

Binky free GrizLily Bear. Until I get to hold you again my heart will be missing a huge piece. Love you so much my beautiful Lily xxx

Frisky 5th January 2017


To our sweet bunny boy Frisky who crossed Rainbow Bridge 5th Jan 2017.

You were the perfect hus-bun to Jolie. When we first got you from the rescue we were going to change your name, but we quickly learned why they named you Frisky!

You didn't have the best start in life and we wanted to give you the best. You made us all so happy for ten years, each day starting with your excitement at getting a big bowl of greens. There is a big bunny gap in all our lives now.

Sleep tight precious boy, we're looking after Jolie for you until the day when you meet her to binky off together. Louise, Glyn and Jolie xxx
