One would be forgiven for thinking that I am getting prepared for a winter flood and recreating Noah’s ark.
We adopted 1 rabbit 2 weeks ago and now we have 2. This means there are 2 cats, 2 rabbits, 18 fish, thousands of worm-farm worms and 2 humans forming our home. No, Indigo (the first rabbit) did not give birth. We enquired at the shelter as to whether the rabbit who had shared a small cage with her for 8 months still needed a home, and she did.
This week, Iyengi (short for Iyengar yoga) arrived. She is a bold and confident rabbit, with an intense appetite for anything green. Her arrival was welcomed by Indigo with nose-kissing and now there are 2 utterly content rabbits in the garden. They do not shy away from the rain – the revel in it. It has been a steep learning curve for me on the preferences and habits of rabbits, but what a delightful journey thus far. I can see many heart-warming years ahead living with them. Below is a photo of Iyengi. She is very nimble and on the move all the time hence it was hard to catch her on camera.
