A rabbit named Echo and a kitten named Ahsoka had a strong bond from the very beginning. The 5-year-old bunny and the 12-week-old kitty spent most of their days together. And despite having her own feline siblings, Ahsoka preferred to spend time with Echo, her best friend. He especially loves to cuddle to him.
Unusual friendship between a female cat and a rabbit
We thought having feline siblings would be great for Ahsoka. The furry dogs could always hang out together, and that's so cool. However, instead of her brothers and sisters from the litter, she chose a rabbit and bonded with him. – says Ryanne Palermo, mother of Echo and Ahsoka.
The echo that Ryanne Palermo saved from The Animal Foundation was protecting Ahsoka in front of other pets in the house. He only allowed her to enter his cage.
King and Queen
Echo ruled our house. All other animals were afraid of him – except for Ahsoka who just loved him. He was the true king and she was his queen. Says Ryanne Palermo.
When the pets were not watching TV with Ryanne, they most likely spent their time cuddling together.
All Echo wanted was to cuddle up to me, my husband and Ashoka. It was his world and we just lived in it. – said Ryanne Palermo.
Unfortunately, we got some sad news – Echo died at the beginning of July this year, leaving his kitten behind a friend in great pain and longing. Ahsoka still sleeps in the bed they once shared, keeping vivid memories of their special bond.
“These two brought so much joy to our lives …”
They always hugged each other and slept together. Ashoka also liked to play with his ears. She was very gentle with him, and he absolutely loved it. These two brought so much joy to our lives. Watching them together so loving each other always made us happy and our hearts filled with love. – adds Ryanne Palermo.
Ryanne Palermo is not planning to adopt another rabbit any time soon. But if he does, Ahsoka's “Queen” will surely be there to show him all the things that Echo's “King” once taught her.
