After a month-long illness, Finn's brother Boo died Friday. The rest of the cats don't seem to notice, but Finn really misses his bunny. He spends most of his time on top of the bookcase in Boo's room, staring at the corner where his box and food used to be, and the rest of his time following us around and asking to be held. So I'm moving Boo's stuff to Finn's page. Here's Boo's bio from Annedale's page:
Annedale would like to give a shout-out to her brother Boo, Boo-delicious, The Boomonstrous Boomonster himself. Boo Bunny (also known to friends and relations as Boo-Man-Chew) is a little buck-toothed rabbit who, like Annedale, keeps the rest of the house at bay simply by his feistiness. The cats are terrified of him. Unlike Annedale, the Boo Man loves to be petted, especially on the nose. He hates having his teeth trimmed, which we have to do every third week. Boo has free range in the house ever since his sister-girl, Sally, died last summer. He likes to re-arrange the closets and hide behind bike wheels. He eats timothy hay, and the expensive Oxbow Pellets, and a variety of (locally grown when they're in season in season) organic greens. Which does not keep him from being a brat and only eating the same kind of green for a few days in a row. The Boo monster came from the Boone humane society to be a friend to Sally, who was not too fond of people. He came with the name, and, unfortunately, it's stuck. Annedale thinks it fits, since he's always spooking her and her brothers. Boo is useful to Annedale because he's so soft, which sometimes distracts us from wanting to pet her.
Boo was incredibly sick and needing to be syringe-fed for a month, but he was a brave and stubborn bunny, and tried his best. He'd still ask to be petted, wash his front paws while we washed his back ones, still try to run around even when he couldn't really move his legs. We're gonna miss our little monster. We know he's up in bunny heaven, grooming Sally's ears and rearranging bike wheels for Fausto Coppi and Major Taylor.
