I like having my windows open and when it's that hot, I need the air conditioner.
Oh I totally forgot to tell you guys! A couple of weeks ago, something ran across my back deck twice. I could swear it was a fox, but can't be sure. I went about my napping and when I went outside to get the mail, I saw a small rabbit sitting near my satellite dish just rocking his head back and forth.
I put two and two together and realized something beat up my yard bunny. I've had yard bunnies for years and like the notion of them around. I ran over to him and he was so in shock that he let me pet him. Now remember this is a WILD bunny letting me touch him.
There was a pile of fur next to him. He had two bare areas on his back where the fur had been ripped from and he just kept rocking and rocking. Nothing else. I grabbed a towel and tried to wrap him up and keep him warm. I called the vet, the animal shelter, animal control and the game and wildlife people.
Not one person would help me. The vet would have had I paid for it. Sadly, I'm not rich or I would have. I did what I could. I picked him up and held him. When I did that his back legs kicked at me strongly, so I knew that they were working. Up to that point, when he tried to hop, he would simply fall over on his side.
It was the saddest thing ever.
I carried him to my woods and placed him next to a tree and petted him some more. Yes I was crying and sad as I couldn't do anything else for him. I told my neighbor what had happened. For a good hour, he just kept rocking, nothing more. When my neighbor came home, we went to check on him and he was gone.
I hope that means he collected himself and went off to heal. I hope he didn't get carried off and I hope he didn't die. I haven't seen him or any other bunnies since then. I hope that it hasn't scared off the other bunnies from my yard forever.
It was a sad, sad thing. I know some of you will roll your eyes and think me silly.
I'm ok with that.
All right, here is January 2016.
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
