Thumper, Cloud and Twotails....much love and fond memories


By april


This is Thumper, also known as Cloud and Twotails.

(the red eye is from the camera, not the bunny, whose partner on the other hand did!)

Thumper, untill recently, used to spend his summer in the garden and the winter indoors, being protected from the cold. A very quiet little thing, delicate, cute and cuddly. We would very often let him have a run around in the living room and he would enjoy jumping around , springing in the air whilst safely and firmly positioned over the rug. he was not a fan of laminate flooring, it would cause him to skid, and most indignant was he….We would also very often forget to put him back in his indoor cage, but he would, most times make his own way back in. One night however i was in for a surprise!
Due to my recent health difficulties, i find that i can no longer go upstairs to bed and so unfortunately have to sleep on the settee, I opened my eyes one morning to find Thumper…Directly in front of my face, any closer and we would have been kissing?…Or maybe that was what had woke me up? It was certainly a wonderful way to wake up.

Thumper died recently and we all miss him very much. xxx

I wrote this for him;

As wind blows on the air
and waters fish the sea
the birds, they do watch over us
their song, of love’s for thee

When ice it comes to greet us
to cool our calming sea
and sky as clear as loves bird’s sweet singing voice
then water’s rain will be

He was good friends with Poppet,

our dog….

they used to play together, hide n seek, or tag…

Cute and sweet and…

what did you do?..

..’wasn’t me mum…. honest’,
still pretendin you’ve got red eyes then?….yep, i think it scares the dog…

well, was it you ….then?….

what….no, wasn’t me….’you said you were gonna tidy up, remember it was your turn….

always seems to be my turn…. and I’m so…

very, very…

tired…xxx mss you loads, Thumper, xxx cool dude rabbit boy…xxx
