Something Magical

Last night Olive fell asleep on me for the first time ever. Her furry, little body nestled between my chest and my arm – her head resting on the edge of my shoulder. I watched as her tiny nose slowed down to a few movements every few seconds, her eyes getting heavy as her breathing mimicked a small child’s while entranced in a deep sleep. There’s something magical about having a bunny fall asleep on you. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it takes them so long to trust anyone, always on guard for a threat to appear at any given moment. And last night, she made me feel incredibly special. Here was this four pound rabbit that I’ve let into my life, taken care of and given her a safe place to grow, and there she was trusting me with her safety. That says a lot, especially coming from a rabbit. Thank you for always making me feel special, Olive, I love you.

  2. Aww this is so sweet. I share the same sentiments about Mort. Being that people to him were more trainers and not so much "parents" it took him a while to truly warm up to us. Now he sleeps on my feet and while it isn't always the most comfortable, I just like having hims so close. xo

    1. That's so cute! I completely understand the idea of wanting your fur baby close.
