Belinda Says Hay: “Abigail”

Belinda Says Hay spokesrabbit blog, Jan 28, 2024: "Abigail"

Hello. It's Belinda.

I don’t even know how to write this.  I keep stopping.

You probably already heard the terrible news.

Abigail, the Small Pet Select novelist, has been very sick. She even had to stay at the vet hospital.

When she came home, her dad cared for her around the clock.

She fought very hard. But she was too weak to recover.

And even though Abigail was so sick, she finished all of her work. She wrote her final chapters in advance. Her dad helped with that too.

You can read them here.

I hate writing this blog. I wish I could pretend this isn't happening.

If you want to read Abigail's entire story from the beginning, or share it with a friend, you can find it in the archive.

Here is the link to all 303 chapters of “Through Abigail’s Eyes.”

I’m going to miss her so much. A lot of people are going to miss Abigail.

My roommate tells me that when humans lose somebody, they like to gather and tell stories. They do it as a “tribute” and to comfort each other.

We’re going to do the same thing for Abigail.

On Wednesday, January 31, please join us for a “celebration of life” for Abigail in the comments under her blog and on Facebook. You can also send your message to me at and I’ll add it to the others.

I hope you will share your favorite memory or let us know something you learned from reading about her life at the House of Buns.

Be sure to watch for the “Through Abigail’s Eyes” email on Wednesday. The link to the celebration of life will be inside.

Some people asked about sending flowers to her family. Abigail asked that you consider making a donation to her favorite rabbit rescue, The Rabbit Haven. You can make a donation in her name here.

Abigail had such a big heart. Even at the end, she was trying to help rabbits in need.

I wish I could write more about her today but I just can't.
