Silent trip to the bridge
This was our darling little Wyatt. A most unusual looking bunny. A white lionhead with crystal blue eyes. A very quiet and shy buns Wyatt was dumped at the animal shelter. Perhaps because he was shy, maybe because he had molar problems that required regular trips to the vet or maybe because someone decided to abuse him for breeding purposes and he was not found useful. We did not think Wyatt was able to hear. Possibly that recessive gene that seems to go along with blue-eye animals. He was not up on the website for adoption. We were afraid that someone would take a shine to Wyatt's coloring and try to use him for more breeding or sell him to the highest bidder.
Wyatt left for the bridge sometime in the early hours this past Saturday morning. This sweet little bunny man lived a quiet life next door to his friend Shoebox. He really only made 3 friends at the rescue; His gentle neighbor Shoebox who sat and watched him closely as he passed, one of our young volunteers who had numerous conversations with Wyatt and his sponsor Rick who got the opportunity to snuggle with Wyatt. You may wonder why I am intent on telling the circumstances on how a bunny that has gone to the bridge came to Heartland? My wish is to help educate and hopefully make people think before they discard a bunny. When you bring any animal into your home, you make a promise to that animal. It is supposed to be for better or worse to take care of them. Momma Jeannie kept that promise to Wyatt when others failed him.
We will miss you bunny man
