That's my girl. One of 15 (at the moment) and one of the most beautiful creatures on this earth.
Rabbits are different than cats or dogs. Oh, I don't just mean how they are predators or prey. It's more than that. It's a way of seeing the world and how they interact with it. They are pastoral.

That's not to say they don't fight. They do. But their experience of life is grazing. No feral hunt, no killing, no ripping a being apart or 'just practicing' how to kill it.
It's such a difference.
These guys literally saved my butt.
I realized just yesterday how much I've kept silent about them on this blog. I fear people roll their eyes. But hey, if this blog is about life--my life--then it's about these guys too.
