We received this beautiful poem from Alex, aged 10.

Lightning the rabbitAlex lost his best friend, his pet rabbit Lightning, last week.

My rabbit, my rabbit he was so beautiful,
He had fluffy fur and a white and grey coat.
He was as soft as a pillow,
His heart was full of friendship and kindness.
From when he was 6 weeks old he came to live with us,
He shared his hutch with his girlfriend Izzy.
His heart was full of love and I will miss him,
But Izzy always guarded him with love.

Alex’s family, Jane, Geoff and Holly also said: “Thank you very much again for the care that you gave to our beautiful rabbit Lightning who sadly passed this week on Tuesday evening.  It is the 7th time we have had cause to visit you over a number of years and have always found your care, compassion and attention to detail to be exceptional.  Thank you so much from all of the family.”
