Sometimes there are days that just suck. Today is one of them.
Today, I had to let go of my (not so) little Tetley rabbit, who we chose to spare from impending suffering. He drifted away this morning after many final embraces and kisses to be with his bunny brother Theo and great defender Marley the conure.
Tetley was almost thirteen years young, which means he was with me through the irritating growing pains of high school, then the joy of university and college. He was with me through long hair that went passed my knees, to a Scully cut, to buzzed sides. From the first tattoo on my 20th birthday to my 15th last November. Through three frustrating retail jobs, through multiple dating let downs and one large heartbreak. You were with me Tetley, from the time when my true self struggled to break through my skin, to the time when I've finally embraced it. Thank you for your silent, noble, amusing and surprisingly energetic existence. Thank you for your meadow jumping through our living room, for trying to hump my dads leg, for flipping your food bowl in the middle of the night to alert me that you required more, for the cute way you consumed your organic lettuce and the wiggle of your nose, for licking my face when you were younger, for that time when you were so small we lost you behind a cabinet, for sitting like an egg, a pancake, for always trusting us to love you unconditionally for the equal unconditional love you gave us. It'll be weird to not have you sitting there, like an old man smoking a pipe, narrow wise, blue eyes judging the birds as they whip around the house. I'll miss you a lot Tetley, my sweet Tetters, Tetinator, Tetster. Thank you for blessing my life for all these years.
