Gizmo has gone

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I feel so devastated today, I went to get Gizmo out of his room to take him out to the garden run and he had died. I don’t even know what happened to him, he was fine last night and has showed no signs of being ill. I just wish that I was able to be there for him.

We got Gizmo from our local RSPCA after I had set my heart on a rabbit. I still believe that it was fate that brought us together as we nearly completely missed his run, as it was set apart from the others. And even when we spotted him we would have passed by, as we wanted a girl rabbit. However the lady cleaning out his run asked if I wanted to hold him and as soon as he snuggled my arms and I saw his handsome face with 1 lop ear and one upright ear, I was in love. We were quickly approved and 2 weeks later Gizmo was home with us.

It didn't take him long to get settled in, using his litter tray and
running around the house as if he owned it. He turned out to be mainly a spoiled and admittedly a slightly grumpy boy but any occasional scratches or bites were soon forgiven when I saw him doing his happy bunny dances or when he used to stretch out and rub noses with me.

He was my special boy, my first pet of my own, and I will truly miss him. He has kept me company through some of the worst times in my life but he always seemed to know when I was sad and he would perform a silly antic to make me smile or just come and lie next to me to give me comfort. I hope that I was able to return what he did for me and made his life happy.

I hope he didn’t suffer any pain and that he is doing his bunny dances wherever he now rests.

Marie, that is such a touching story of how you and Gizmo found each other. I'm so sorry for your loss. Every animal that touches our lives is special to us, but some we just have an extra bond with. It sounds like Gizmo was one of those, a very special part of your life.

What a terrible thing for you! What a shock it must have been. Was Gizmo getting old? Of course we don't want them to suffer, but this is just too hard to take. My heart breaks for you. What a character he was, though. Don't you love it when they have such strong personalities? I'll bet he was loads of fun, the little dickens. I feel certain you'll see him again.

Marie, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Gizmo. It's always hard when it's so unexpected. I'm thinking of you and sending good thoughts from Down Under.

Oh my! I am so sorry that your Gizmo passed from you. I bet he is at the Bridge right now, entertaining all the other pet angels with his antics.
God bless you and your family during this sad time.

Thank you for your kind thoughts.

Gizmo was about 5/6 years old, he was found abandoned so we the RSPCA were unable to supply much information about him.

We burried him yesterday at the bottom of the garden were his run used to be, along with a small box of my brothers ashes my Mum had given me. As he used to love coming to see gizmo, and I had been unable to find an ideal place for them until now

I have got a friend who said he will help me install a small fountain there as well and plant some nice bushes.

I'm so sorry Gizmo died so young. Your idea is lovely. You will think of your brother and Gizmo with pleasant memories every time you sit in the garden. What a beautiful tribute to both, and a peaceful place for you to meditate.
