Then every day I would bring Caramel down stairs for a run around and in the summer the patio doors would be open and he would zoom around at full pelt taking a flying leap from the top step and zip around the garden back up through the patio door around the furniture in the lounge and skid to a halt by the door to the hall way he then would look at you with this funny wild look almost daring you to laugh,which I did and off he would go again.In the winter the patio door would be closed and he would scratch at the door to go out and then did the same to come in.
Caramel loved chasing the cats and the dog just for the sheer hell of it and then other times especially in winter when its cold the fire would be on and they would all be stretched out in front of the fire having a snooze and then he would want a cuddle and he would hop over to me watching telly and jump up on to my lap and would sit on my chest giving me bunny kisses.If we were up stairs in my bedroom we would snuggle down under the quilt together and have a snooze.
When he was in a temper he would growl and bite but when he was in a loving mood it was cuddles and bunny kisses all the way.He could be a proper Houdini and a really cheeky boy too.
And then Caramel met the hubby,the hubby would put his hand in the pen trying to get Caramel to come over and would complain that "this rabbit doesn't do anything" I would say "don't tease him he'll only bite you" and the next thing there was a big yell "he bit me your rabbit bit me!" and what did I say you guessed it"I told you so" but when I moved in with the hubby they fell in love with each other having cuddles and fun together,but when I came home from work who did Caramel struggle to get to?Me and who do you think Caramel saved the bunny kisses for?Me,he was still my baby boy!
Then 2 years later after being treated for epilepsy Caramel woke us up he was having a big fit we would calm him down and it would stop but 2 mins later it started again so we took him to the vets where the vet gave him a tranquiliser hoping it would reboot the brain signals but it didn't work I was up all night with him in my arms watching him have fits on and off all night in the morning I was devastated I had to make the call it was no good,Caramel was suffering so there I was in the vets with him in my arms crying my eyes out knowing it was time but that rabbit was a fighter right to the end three injections it took for him to pass and for his heat to stop but there wasn't any thing else I could do as he would have suffered as he started to shut down from the trauma of having fit after fit.I brought him back home and made a little coffin and made it all pretty with Christmas paper as it was nearly Christmas and when the hubby came home we buried Caramel it the bottom garden.we both thought we would die that day but we didn't but it was so empty at home with out him.So that's when Thumper came to us but that is another tale!
