In an earlier post I wrote a bit about how an unexpected jump in the population of a rescue can create problems in care. The jump I wrote about was a rescued mother bunny giving birth to a bunch of babies.
It is amazing to experience the strength of the feelings that babies...in this instance baby bunnies can evoke in we human animals.
In the first picture from that post, right in front, you can see a little baby, covered with light grey fur, sleeping peacefully.
Here's that baby, just a few weeks older:
She (we think her sex is female but it is difficult to be certain because she's so young) is simply exquisite. As are all of the babies. Most of them are delighted to see a human because that means head rubs and food and oohs and aahs.
I said to the director of Heartland Rabbit Rescue recently that it really is almost impossible to stay in a down mood around bunnies. Especially baby bunnies...their excellence can simply overwhelm sadness or depression. If you want to elevate your mood...go volunteer and spend time around Earthlings who aren't human. That experience will likely cause a bad mood to evaporate. Helping is usually much more fun than medication.
Support your local sanctuaries and rescues. Please.
