These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. They were moved to a rescue center but two out of the litter of five did not survive, and the remaining three were not doing well.
Another resident at the shelter is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove named Noah. During the bunnies stay, Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in as well as sleeping in front of the door to the cage. At one point one of the bunnies disappeared from the cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage it was found that the rabbit had managed to squeeze through the cage and find his way under Noah's wing. 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! He "coos" as if singing them to sleep with a lullaby.
Noah helps out with many rescue babies at the Wild Rose Rescue Ranch, although the bunnies seem to be his favorite.
Noah’s first litter of bunnies, almost raised and ready for release.
He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge. - Psalm 91:4
Hold tightly to what is eternal and loosely to what is temporal.
