  1. Love this story and so happy that you were there for that beautiful bunny. We have a bunny who suffered some head trauma who we nursed back to health. She now suffers head tilt but has been given the all clear by our vet and is happy and healthy. It is surprising how strong these little creatures can be. Your little bun is so lucky to have someone like you watching over, keeping him safe x

  2. You are an incredibly caring person. You have shown so much love and compassion to your little Puffy. I’m so glad to hear that he is doing better. I, too, love bunnies. My first pet was a bunny. We named him Bun-bun, not very original, but we liked it. He was a great pet!

  3. I’m so happy that Puffy is still alive. I couldn’t handle it if he died. While I was reading, I felt the tears building up behind my eyes. I remember you lost another bunny about a year ago. That was when we got our dwarf rabbit, Thumper. I wish Thumper could make noise, any noise, so I would know if he was happy or sad. He does take the food bowl in his teeth and bash it against the bars of his cage when he’s hungry.
    What I wanted to say was that I loved your story. Anyone can be a writer as long as they have something to say. My career had been in Finance, and now I’m considered by some, not all, a writer. Keep writing. It gets easier each time.
    My best wishes to Puffy.

  5. Oh, Paul. I’m so happy the bunny is getting better due to your amazing and loving care. Puffy came to you for a reason and you found each other in time. Thinking of you and sending love and healing thoughts to Puffy.

  6. Paul, it’s very clear that you were meant to have Puffy and to care for him in his suffering. Another person would not have done so. You are an animal lover, bunnies most of all, and your love for Puffy is very strong. Hopefully Puffy stays health for many years to come. A beautiful story! Christine

  7. You love Puffy, and Puffy loves you! I love Puffy, too! You were given to him to take care of him. Because of love, you are right to do what you are doing. Please give Puffy a special kiss for me. My heart is breaking.

  8. It is impossible to put a dollar amount on one’s love for a companion animal. Only other people with a dog, cat, horse, whatever will read this and say, “I would do the same!” God bless you and I look forward to learning Puffy is fully recovered some day!

    I lost one cat on August 1, 2011. Two weeks later, when I picked up Louie’s ashes, a veterinarian tech who raised pedigree kitties came into the front office and set this strange-looking mammalian-looking “thing” on the desk. It looked up at me and walked toward me! It was so ugly it was cute! And it turned out to be the scruffiest little Persian kitty I could imagine.

    She asked if I wanted him. I said yes, but had to wait till he was old enough to leave his momma.

    When picked him up, he had diarrhea and sometimes ate, sometimes didn’t. I called the person who gave him to me, and learned he and his littermates caught and ate a grasshopper with an internal parasite. I told her I was worried I was going to have another kitty die on me if I kept him.

    She came and got him, with instructions from me to keep him at the clinic till he was off medicine or stable.

    I visited Andy, my little Persian kitten, every other day or more. He grew bigger and stronger.

    About two weeks in, the woman with the litter of Persian kitties came in with another kitten. “This is Andy’s brother. They have been playing well together. Would you be interested in another kitty” By that time, since I had planned to get a companion for Andy and I now knew a Persian kitten when I saw one, I agreed! [Those who follow my blog are familiar with both kitty boys and that this second kitten is called Dougy.]

    There were other stays at the clinic and regular visits for both kittens till they were healthy, had all their recommended shots, and that “little” operation to neuter them approximately six months and $1400+ later.

    As they say, there are not free kittens! I would do the same, however, and I want you to feel good that you are working to give Puffy as much care as it takes. Puffy isn’t “just a rabbit”! Puffy is a sentient being, and you will be rewarded for helping Puffy back to health.

    Just knowing you’d do this for a rabbit makes me feel very positive about you, Paul. I love you photography, but this is a side of you that is inspirational and touching. I like it!!
