This is Miss Sheridan Rabbit and I chose to write my own tribute a few weeks before I passed.
I am beautiful, funny, and fun and have heaps of personality. I will remain in the present tense because my vibrant energy will never dissipate. I have had a wonderful life… I am a world traveler with dual nationality and have resided in London, UK, as well as in several homes in Montgomery County, Maryland. I have stolen most of the physical space from and all of the hearts of those I have resided with, especially that of my co-conspirator and bond-mate of 10 years Stasi and my human parents. I am also dear to my extended family and have some good human friends too.
Boy do I have attitude! I have spent my life amazing people with my unique beauty and then manipulating them into doing my bidding. I love attention and I am excellent at getting and maintaining it. I am also a lot of fun. I love playing hide and seek and I love head-butting. I can be quite sassy… You should hear me stomp! When I get annoyed I run away and stomp loudly and fiercely. I also know how to get tastier meals whenever I want them – I simply refuse anything else and scare Mommy into treating me. Hee, hee, hee, hee!!! I have enjoyed so many delicious berries and other tasty treats with this tactic.
I am a particularly hairy rabbit. It is suspected that I am half Angora. Mommy has to trim my hairs often so I don’t become a ball of white fur.
What else? I am a published writer, I have been written about, and I have been in several calendars.
I am extremely content with the long and wonderful life I have lived and I choose to end it on a high note.
Love to you all,
Miss Sheridan Rabbit
