He may be gone but he will never be forgotten so I'm starting this thread for my lovely Billy :) (Also known as Bill, Billy-Monkey, Monkey, Bilkie, Bilbo, Billybobs, Bilkie-Way and Monster!)
Talking about him and looking at photos is really helping me at the moment. I hope that you can all see why I loved this little guy so much :love:
I won't post too many at a time... I promise.

Just so long as there are *quite* a few then :D

Never forgotten. I am glad talking about him and looking at photos is helping. He was quite a character, and very brave :love:

Awwww wonderful :love:

Bit dangerous with that remote control so near to the teeth :lol:

And I love it when they go to a soft spot for their flop. I often wonder where wildies do their flopping - if they do it at all?

That's Billy's famous star rug. He really loved it. He would get on it, dig the rug and then flop. He would flop so much. He really was a happy, contented boy :)

Beautiful pics of Billy Monkey (OH is now singing his song because he has heard me sing it so much). Bill reminds me of my second ever rabbit Ralph. He was full of adventure & super friendly too. And the same soulfull brown eyes :love:

His song does have a tendency to stick in your head! I'm sure you will both be singing it for months :) It makes me happy to know that people are singing his song :love:
Ralph sounds just like him. Both lovely boys!

June this year, helping me to pack for my holiday... or maybe be wanted to come with me. I wish that I'd never gone and that I'd spent an extra 2 weeks with my boy </3

You were meant to have such a happy life with your beautiful Bianca. B&B :( I know that you weren't together long but I'm sure that she misses you Bilkie. We all do. So so much.

:love: a stunning couple. He really was special & he'll keep that special place in your heart forever. How is Bianca now?

I posted a couple of other photos on the previous page too of him being a little mischievous.
She's ok, she's so affectionate with us. She sits and has cuddles for ages and she will sit on the sofa with us grooming out legs and feet! I think that she misses him and she's probably lonely but we're just not ready to get her a friend yet, especially with Sylar still being poorly.
I don't know if you remember when Billy I temporarily lost Billy that time and I found him in the back of our armchair? He had dug/chewed his way into the back of it and made a little den for himself... she loves spending time in there too.
I'm so upset tonight. Christmas is coming and he won't be here. We never got to have a Christmas with him. We nearly got him before Christmas last year but I kept putting it off because I didn't want another rabbit... deep down I knew that we would end up bringing him home in the end but I was being stubborn. I really dug my heels in. We went in to see him every day for almost 3 months and we didn't bring him home. We could have given him a lovely home for Christmas last year but we didn't. He was stuck in a cage in P@H when he should have been home with us :cry: He should be with us this year too but he's not.

I just lol at the den story, I'm pretty sure I remmber. He so reminds me of Ralph (who I still think of daily 10 years on). Its lovely that Bianca now uses his den. Their den! With regards to Christmas it means something to most people but it means nothing to bunnies (honest, I don't believe they care about Jesus' birthday). Bill cared about his lovely day to day life with you. It is sad you miss out though & sad too that it can't feel the same.

I really admire your bunny mummy skills & devotion

Thank you. I'm so devoted to them and I guess that's why it hurts so much. Have you got any photos of Ralph?
Hopefully he felt like every day was Christmas with us... I hope that we made him happy.
I'm really really struggling today. The boys live free range upstairs and Bianca is in the chair so when I got home from work 2 hours ago the house just felt so empty... no Billy greeting me at the door. He was like a little dog really on that respect. He'd come running up to us for a stroke. Such a sweet boy :love:
I know it's silly because Bianca is here and all my other babies are upstairs too but it feels so weird at times.

Roxy, can I just put a huge ((((((((((HUG))))))))) here?
I feel the pain you are going through by reading your words. I am so very sorry. Never does a loss hurt more than when it is during the run up to a holiday like Christmas. Families should be together, if that is what they desire. I am so sorry. :(

But think of it this way if you wish, Billy is here with you, just in another form. His spirit is here and if Bianca is spending time in his hidey spot in the armchair, then perhaps she feels his presence there too. I know we as humans are built on the physical experience, but never forget that there is that other realm. The one that our lost loved ones visit us from in our dreams and brush past us in daylight and we wonder and turn to see if they are there. He would never truly leave you because he knew love with you all. And he will always be a part of your life. He was your bunny, no one else's, and so will his spirit be.

Thinking of you. xxxx

Ralph was my only bunny to do that. He used to rummage through all my bags looking for greens. I have a few photos but not electronic, the nearest thing is a photo taken off a photo (I still have 2 of him hanging on my wall). Beautiful black bunnies

Thank you so much. Bianca was only with Billy for a month but she has picked up so many of his habits. She lies in all the same places which is comforting and also upsetting. When I look up to see if Billy is there and see Bianca where he should be it breaks my heart... but looking up to see no bunny at all would hurt so much more.
I honestly feel like a little kid. I just don't want to deal with it. I want to go home to my mum, have a big cuddle and let her deal with it all. I don't feel anywhere near mature enough to deal with this. I'm left questioning wondering if I'm enough for my other babies :(

He did love a good read. When we got new bookcases we had to leave the bottom two shelves free because he would take one off the shelf, drag it to his armchair and just rip it to shreds. He was so cheeky. Xx

I remember Bill making his den in your armchair. The photos are amazing. I did a home check once to someone who's buns had done the same - they just disappeared on me!

Bianca is a beautiful girl. I hope she's doing OK xx And you too Roxy xx
