    Default Aboleth: arrived 29/7/06/2015 - 12/11/2019

    I never got around to really collecting together everything when Aboleth died, so I've tried for her gotcha anniversary

    Here's an album of pictures (of both her and Lopsy) on Google Photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/d49CbiLhM4vct8zG8

    We miss her: she was smart, not destructive most of the time and super pretty. She had the best moult lines Her ears moulted noticeably, she had weird front paws, and this weird bumskirt. Her missing eye sometimes had eyebrows

    She arrived from Notts Nibblers rescue (since closed) having been bonded with Lopsy. No-one knew her past but she'd come from another rescue with a horrible eye abscess which was removed before bonding, and she was called Bluebell by the rescue, so for a couple of months. They got on on first meeting and Lopsy was quite humpy but he soon backed down and Aboleth became top bun. She was quite harassing She was smarter but otherwise just as food-obsessed, inquisitive, friendly and generlaly lovely

    Apart from that weird bumskirt and her weird ear moults, she had FABULOUS moult lines, sometimes that looked like ringworm, and wasnít massively keen on being de-fluffed. She wasnít aggressive but did bite my finger badly because she thought it was apple She got caught on bramble sticks and ran around like a loony sometimes. She stole food off Lopsy really easily, and waited for him to do the work so she could get it (smart ;P). She didnít care for cucumber and preferred celery. She wasnít keen on fruit except apple. She didnít like the rain but loved the snow. She couldnít stand us being high up, or next door, and would run around thumping. We think that was because she had poorer eyesight due to only having one eye She didnít care at all about loud noises or anything. She tried to make friends with one of next doorís cats, Frank Her and Frank had a neighbourly-hello relationship She liked to roll in the dirt and sleep in wonky positions.

    I donít know if she was a cuddle bun: I never tried But she never tried to sit on me either, except at the vets a couple of times She wasnít as keen as Lopsy to use our hands as platforms to stand on to reach up. She was easier to lift into the carrier etc., but less easy to entice in, as I think she knew what was up

    The vet said her teeth were abominable, but she was such a good hay eater she never had a problem Her cause of death was likely cancer all over: she had three big neck lumps (lymphoma) which I reckon was what stopped her eating/drinking in those last days, her kidney function was all over the place as well and I donít think she would have recovered if she hadnít chosen to go when she did

    Given how she was acting all through her life, Iíd say she was the same age as Lopsy (within 6m) because Chibbs at 5 compared to Lopsyís 6.5 seems much more active.

    We buried her in the hole she dug in the lawn, and Iíll create a little shrine in the back bedroom as well.

    You were our first proper rescue rabbit, Aboleth, and you were our first ĎOMG you named your rabbit after a D&D monster?!í experiment too, and that worked. You showed us proper rabbit behaviour, you were stunning to look at, and you were friendly. You are missed

    What a wonderful collection of memories I always wondered about the origin of her name x

    A wonderful tribute! Thanks for sharing. She looked very like my Bertie does, but he doesn't get such distinct moult lines. xx

    I've often looked at Bertie's picture and thought he looks like a slightly paler Aboleth, I suspect he doesn't have the dark line between the white underfur and fawn bits on top
