Miss Benni (Bennigan) was my beautiful white lop-eared rabbit for 6 years. She was sent to me from above one week after I lost a prior pet of 10 years. I'll always remember the love, laughs and sass that she added to my life and home. I posed her for many seasonal photo shoots and she wore many adorable hats. A cherished roommate, she loved to shred newspapers and dig in her house at all hours of the night, a sound I really miss right now. I was always amazed at the headlines and text that she would shred and leave in plain sight for me to find: 30% on my 30th birthday, R.I.P. when her brother passed away, etc. Bennigan loved to beg for yogurt drop treats, scarf down a variety of lettuces and basil, and stomp her foot after being placed on various floors. She winked at people, was always friendly when being held, petted or brushed, and would peacefully watch me while resting in her house. She also loved her bookshelf, bed behind the sofa and hopping around my room to mess with Miss Bunny (stuffed toy by window) and sniff some shoes in the closet. I cherish our Saturday morning cuddles in my bed, her cuddles out on the sofa, and all of the times she broke into the laundry room without permission. |
Recently, she was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and had surgery that removed the majority of it. However, small amounts had started to visibly spread. I had her on two medicinal herbs that kill cancer in pets after that point. A few weeks ago, she came down with an upper respiratory infection and her heart rate increased. It was either due to the cancer or totally unrelated. Despite medicine, that claimed her life three Sundays ago from today. She comforted me through the loss of two other pet rabbits in this life, and other losses that made me sad. Lounge on in heaven, Miss Benni, and play with Beatrix and Benjamin, where there is no cancer or health problems.
