The girls (Judy and Molly) are very diligent in sounding the alarm if marauding dogs or coyotes approach their home although their skills at detecting hungry hawks still need development.
Below is a photograph showing a young visitor from Norman along with Molly and Judy.

Christina, over at the Rabid Tidbits blog has posted some current photographs of the baby bunnies recently born at Heartland Rabbit Rescue. It is astonishing how fast they are growing.
Most of us who live in cities are rather limited in the variation of animal species that we have the opportunity to interact with. One of the many benefits of volunteering at a sanctuary or rescue facility is the chance to get to know different kinds of animal folks and different individuals. Each rabbit is unique with her or his own likes and dislikes, behaviors and moods. Just as is each donkey, each pony, each dog, cat or human. We humans tend to lump other species all together and presume that we then know about them. This is no more true for human animals than it is for rabbit animals (or others).
Volunteering, especially for young humans, offers them the opportunity to become more sophisticated in their knowledge about the other Earthlings they share this planet with. Once you become friends with a living being, it becomes more problematic to then see that being (or others like her or him) as a "thing" to be exploited or abused or killed. For most of us, anyway.....there are exceptions.
