Wildlife at home!


A Couple of weeks ago I saved this little bunny from our neighbors cat. I didn't know rabbits made any sounds but this tiny one sure squealed very loudly when our neighbors cat had it by the neck. I was sitting on the porch reading after the boys left on the bus, I looked up to see a cat with a tiny little bunny in his mouth. I chased him down and the cat dropped it, I scooped him up to make sure he was okay, a little scratched up but nothing terrible. It was then that Emily woke up and came out to find me. After the bunny calmed down for a minute she sat and held it for a long while. It took some convincing but I finally talked her into finding the bunny a safe place to call home. We walked behind our house and found a little grove of trees and set it free. She was sad for a while and asked all day if we could go say back and say hi to the bunny.
