Yesterday was a pretty awful day and not one to be repeated in a hurry. When we take animals into our lives, it's with the knowledge, deep in our souls, that they won't stay for nearly as long as we'd like. But we make that bargain with them, to care for them and to love them and in return they'll try not to break our hearts too soon. Having more animals than many people, it's a bargain I've made often and I'm sure will continue to make regardless of the risk of pain!
Some of you readers may remember Charm our little lion head rabbit from my old blog. He was the son of our two 'boy' rabbits, BigWig and Lou (later renamed Lulu!). He used to have the free run of the garden, but escaped so many times, crossed so many roads and was found all over the village that we had to keep him in a run eventually, for his own safety and the sanity of various neighbours!
Here he is with Arnold our very elderly cat (19).
Charm featured in our Alice in Wonderland blog post as the white rabbit under a spell that had turned him black!!! Moomin made such a sweet Alice and it was magical to see her in such a girly dress :D
