Sorry for the late post today. Vicki here, attempting to fill in for BHV. I'm afraid I've failed to come up with a witty line for this evening, but here's a pic of one of my furries having a snack.
When he periscopes he always reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit - if rather less shabby. And then it makes me sad to think of all the Real bunnies out there who are treated more like toys and don't get to show their natural behaviours like the Velveteen rabbit was eventually able and like this little chap gets to.
"He gave one leap and the joy of using those hind legs was so great that he went springing about the turf on them, jumping sideways and whirling round as the others did" (Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit).
Reminds me of the joy we see when a bunny who's been confined to a hutch their whole life arrives with us and gets their first taste of a decent bit of space.
Thank you for a Decade of Cute!
