In remembrance of our rabbit Charlie who died today.

We adopted Charlie in 2015 to have a companion for our female rabbit Willow. Charlie was quite shy and it took me a long time to get them to accept each other but eventually, after several months they bonded. Willow was always the boss in their relationship and as a result Charlie spent a lot of his time grooming his primadonna companion. They had a great time having our entire garden to themselves.

After Willow died I tried to bond Charlie with Harvey, our remaining bunny but sadly it didn't work out. Harvey (The Harveynator) was always too aggressive and bossy and sooner or later he would attack poor Charlie. So they lived side-by-side, separated but still next to each other. I think Charlie liked it like that.

In the last couple of years in his life Charlie started developing all sorts of old age problems. He had arthritic hind legs, cataracts in his eyes and stopped being able to clean himself properly so last autumn we brought him in the house and he lived in the utility room. We had to bathe him every second day to keep him clean. Eventually he went completely blind and seemed to struggle moving about so the difficult decision was made to put him to sleep. He is buried under a plum tree in the garden.
Charlie, we hope you had a good life with us.
