Marcy & Figgie: A Lasting Legacy of Therapy Rabbits

I’m writing this tribute to my little girl Figgie, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on February 23, 2022.

I adopted Figgie and her brother Newton in 2014 to carry on the legacy of my first therapy rabbit, Oreo.

Figgie looked like the velveteen rabbit, beautiful chocolate/golden brown. She was a perfect 3 lb. lady and everyone loved meeting her.

We brought miles of smiles to everyone we met. I love when people say, “I’ve never seen a real rabbit before” and that we can show them one up close and personal. When people would pet her, it was almost always, “Oh my, she is soooo soft.”

Newton is carrying on her legacy as well as Oreo’s.
