The Power of Love


These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not survive, and these three were not doing very well.

Noah is the non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that is in rehab. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in -- even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.

Then, there were only two bunnies in the cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage to my surprise...there was the tiny bunny...under Noah's wing..sound asleep! That little bunny rabbit had crawled through the cage, preferring a featherbed, no doubt.

Now, they are all together and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then they snuggle. When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak! This is amazing...
