Pigeon and baby Bunnies

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

Then, suddenly, there were only two bunnies in the cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage to everyone's 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 to snuggling up with its littermates!
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! It is beautiful and amazing to see....

With the usual attitude

of a Phalene Daisy brings in 2010 with a look of was that it? Then settled straight back down to her "lets watch the world go by" and always at a sedate pace. No rocket, toy or treat has yet been invented that will get Daisy's pulse racing.
All the others are keeping pace with Daisy except when the snow is falling then everyone leaps about trying to catch the flakes before they hit the ground.

Ayla has come on in leaps and bounds, her appointments with the vet had to be cancelled a few times due to the weather but she was back yesterday and is now continuing her vitamin B12 injections. These will continue for another 3 weeks and then fingers crossed we should be seeing a big difference in her.

We have a new addition to our home in the form of a little Pomeranian girl called Jewels. I'll post some pictures of her with her new friends soon.
