Cubby has been gone for just over 3 months now and I still miss him. But the thing is I'm just not sure why! I mean, yes, we all miss our furbabies, but he was not the most sociable bunny. In fact he was the least sociable (didn't like to be petted for the first 5 years of his life, who knows why as he was spoiled to pieces!) rabbit I have EVER had. (I can't have cats or dogs as my dad is allergic)So why do I miss him so much when he mostly did nothing but bite me? And I do mean bite, not just a little nip! He could draw blood! And yet he had the cutest face EVER. He was so darn adorable it was worth all those bloody fingers just to touch his fur. It wasn't until the last year of his life that he knew we weren't trying to hurt him. I have had him since he was a baby. I just cannot understand why he didn't like anyone for 5 years. And yet I miss him. Maybe it's because of all the love I wanted to give but didn't get to because he wouldn't allow it. Maybe I am regretting that.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Thank you Chris and Lin. Yes, Chris, I have 3 other "long-eared children" (as my mom likes to call them). Even though rabbits typically live only 6-10 years (unless they are a small breed like ^Cubby^'s dad, ^Bear^, in which case they may live more...^Bear^ lived to be 12!), they are my babies...losing them is always hard, but it's harder when you have an unanswered question like this. Lin, I think you are right, even though I could rarely pet him without a fight, ^Cubby^ had and will always have a piece of my heart. Bunnies are just such cute little things....
