It Isn't Easy

As most of you know, it isn’t easy losing a fur kid.  We aren’t looking for sympathy or anything, just a platform to share our thoughts.  Several people understand about losing a fur kid and others don’t.  We feel there needs to be a post out there to give those an insight on how it feels to those who don’t understand how it feels losing a fur kid.

A fur kid, if given a chance, will love their parents unconditionally with no regrets, with no second thought, and no changing of their minds.   Fur kids love us like Jesus wants humans to love other humans.  There are creatures out there, dogs, cats and bunnies that love their parents and would die for their parents.

A fur kid’s life revolves around their family.  For those who don’t realize, our fur babies feel emotions like humans, but deeper.  Humans are the “rulers” over God’s world, but we do a poor job of it.  There is so much abuse out there and it saddens this household that humans let abandonment and abuse happen physically, mentally, and emotionally on so many levels; human to human, human to creature, and human allowing creature to creature.

At work and other settings, it has not been easy for us (Two Bunny Blog Parents) to be proud of having adopted bunnies.  We receive cruel jokes and rude comments from humans who would never say anything if we had dogs or cats.  It isn’t easy, but WE LOVE OUR BUNNIES!  However, anything easy is not worth having most of the time and God shapes us the best when it isn’t easy.

I want you to imagine you are a hunted creature of prey and 90%+ of the world’s population is your hunter.  Would you be willing to love the thing that is the biggest threat to you?  Our bunnies do; humans are the biggest threat to them and they are willing to love us anyway.

It isn’t easy, but it is worth it,
The Parents


  1. That is why I believe rabbit parents are the finest people in the world. The hearts of rabbit people are open and exposed for all the world to see. All living creatures are welcome in those hearts and no one understands the value of life more than rabbit people. Rabbit people are incapable of hatred. Hatred cannot abide in the heart of a person who loves rabbits. Their hearts are just too raw for rancor.

  2. When I lose any of my fur babies, it leaves such a hole in my heart. It seems it is worse when it is a bun. I cannot understand why people don't think rabbits are worth the love that dogs and cats get. My bunnies give me so much love and pleasure with their little lives. I owe them so much. How can I not love them?

  3. when my first Bunny died I thought I would die too and some of the people in my old job said well what do you expect it only a rabbit they don't live long any way don't know why your upset,if it was a dog or cat that would be different and that was the attitude I had to deal with until I got my second bunny I had to have him in work with for about half and hour in a large box till I could get picked up from work by my hubby,and 12 week old black and white dutch boy and everbody could help them selves they had to have a look even the one's who were insensitive and they all fell in love and for years they called me Rachel Rabbit even on the tanoy if they needed me thats what they called me from the mement they met that little bunny it changed because they had become part of a bunny parent life even if it was only in a small way and when Thumper died I was in my current job my mother inlaw told me that hubby had to take him to the vet but I knew that morning that it had to be done and gave him his last cuddle and said my good byes told hubby that it was time to say good bye I thought I would die again but this time the new people I work with were understanding and now I hav Speedy and I'm called the bunny lady by some they think its funny but sweet how I adore my baby boy not that he is a baby anymore and they are more understanding and always ask how Speedy is doing,I would not be with out a bunny now even when I lose them and feel like I'm going to die too I won't wait to get a new one because I can't bear not having a bunny....That's me the bunny lady,The bunny mum

  4. i understand fully. When I lost a hamster and cried, people just don't understand. They also can't believe that I bring my hamsters to the vet.

    But what do I care? I love my little ones, and they gave me much joy. That's all that matters.

  5. I can't imagine you have a hard time at work! Adopting bunnies like you do is amazing!

  6. I truly understand and share your tears and your heartache. I have been there many times with these adorable and precious creatures we choose to share our lives with.
    My heart is also truly very sad for those who choose rude, cruel and mean remarks. Their lives are obviously empty of what love really is.

  7. I completely understand. Sometimes people look at me strangely because I own bunnies. Too bad for them- they have no idea how AWESOME it is to have one or more as a companion. They are amazing, loving creatures. I am blessed they are in my life. I think it's terrible how judgey people are when we veer from their norm.

  8. Thank you for baring your grief--it show your loving hearts. Prayers that you will heal & welcome new buns to nurture. Be blessed.

  9. Mr. Mick and I think people like that are just plain stupid and don't deserve the time of day--and I've never hesitated to tell them so. I get a lot of people who are curious and ask a lot of questions about rabbits, and I am always happy to answer their questions, but if they cross the line, I let them know it. If they have a problem with that, it's their problem. Never be anything but proud that you are bunny people, for you are the best kind of bunny people.
