Those of you who read this week's Cats on Tuesday post will know that we lost Ben this week. He was our little house rabbit who had lived with us for six years (we think he was about 11 which is a great age for a small bunny to reach). We originally got him and his partner Lucy from a rabbit rescue organisation where they'd been taken by their previous owner after she acquired a dog that killed her other rabbits and then decided to go after the last two. Lucy died a few years ago and that's when Ben moved into the house with us. He was a shy, gentle little soul who gave us (and his wonderful vet Aga) a nervous breakdown every so often when he had to undergo a dental - we were never sure if he would make it through the anaesthetic or not! He used to like to sit cuddled up to Mrs P, or he could be found on his footstool next to the radiator (often with Posky trying to get on it with him). Anyway, here are a few photos of the wee man himself.
This is the last photo we have of Ben - this is him
doing his 'An angry - I haz it' face...
...and here he is being squished by Posky.
Who could forget the way he stole the limelight from the cats
during the pumpkin photo shoot last year?
Or how he gamely joined in with the cats' 'Drama in the Garden!' productions.
He was a bit of a star.
