It is with some sadness that I report that Biggles, International Rabbit of Mystery, and the last of his warren, hopped off to join his ancestors last night.
So now my Basement o'Rabbits is rabbit-less.
10 weeks shy of his 10th birthday puts him somewhere around 90 human years.
The last 2 months though he's been slowing down and like a senior worried about the basement stairs, he wasn't leaving the cage. We did spoil him silly with the treats though. Half an apple? Branch off the apple tree? Even better (leaves and all, he happily stripped all the bark off).
Yesterday morning I gave him the stalk from some broccoli but after work I visited him and he'd fallen and couldn't get back up.
I'm going to miss the little fuzz ball.
