Farewell, Rabbie Burns

Mom update: She is being released from the hospital today and should be just fine.

This is a really sad one for me. I remember when Rabbie Burns was first adopted into the Fluffy Tribe three years ago. He soon acquired the nickname of Bad Bunny Burns from his habit of chewing on wires and the baseboards and anything else he could get his teeth into, including one of his Mom's books and a TurboTrack. He had great fun with the TurboTrack. I loved reading his reports. He got along quite well with the cats, except when he took over Merlin's sleeping basket when he first moved in. Merlin didn't like that too much. He was much too young to go to the Rainbow Bridge, but he got a mass of fur lodged in his digestive track and hopped off to the Bridge before the vet could operate to get it out of him. The mass shut down his digestive track completely. He will really be missed.

                                     Rabbie Burns was a bad, bad bun.
                                     When wires were to be found, he would chew every one.
                                                 To the Bridge he hopped --
                                                 He couldn't be stopped.
                                      How we will miss you, Rabbie Burns bun.
