Now that we have larger litter boxes, Cinnamon has discovered that he can bury himself in the hay. He always does it. He doesn't really dig in the box, just gets in and under the hay.

St Francis of Assisi

I'm not a religious person. But it's nice to think that someone is watching over the animals:
Christians everywhere celebrate the feast of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4 by having their pets blessed in the spirit of this patron saint of animals and ecology.

St. Francis, Rabbits and Fish
One day a brother brought a rabbit who had been caught in a trap to St. Francis. Francis advised the rabbit to be more alert in the future, then released the rabbit from the trap and set it on the ground to go its way. But the rabbit hopped back up onto Francis’ lap, desiring to be close to the saint.

Francis took the rabbit a few steps into the woods and set it down. But it followed Francis back to his seat and hopped on his lap again! Finally Francis asked one of his fellow friars to take the rabbit far into the woods and let it go. That worked. This type of thing happened repeatedly to Francis—which he saw as an opportunity to praise the glory of God. If the simplest creatures could be so endowed with God’s wonder, how much the more so we humans!

Fish were also known to obey Francis. Whenever a fish was caught and Francis was nearby, he would return the fish to the water, warning it not to be caught again. On several occasions the fish would linger awhile near the boat, listening to Francis preach, until he gave them permission to leave. Then they would swim off. In every work of art, as St. Francis called all creation, he would praise the artist, our loving Creator.

M for Meadow

Miss Meadow has a M on her nose. No I didn't put it there, nature did. It's temporary, while she is shedding, again.
Went to a used bookstore over the weekend. Turned in books, and got some books. Actually got 4 books, 2 bunny books. BL recommended the "Rabbits Gentle Hearts" book and let me borrow it. It was a good price, so I got myself a copy. Also picked up "Velveteen Rabbit" on clearance. It made me cry.

Little JT turns 1 today. I don't really have his exact date of birth, but I got him, his momma and brothers at the beginning of October and they were a month old then. So I chose today as his birthday.

This morning JT got some birthday oats with his breakfast and had a short visit with his momma, Meadow. He also got a new toy.

His brother Buddy, is in a happy home in Seattle. He was only in the Seattle shelter for a short time. The other brother, the aggressive one, Calvin, is at Rabbit Haven doing well and is up for adoption.

Here is JT with his new toy.
