Today’s prompt theme of Susannah’s prompt list is love.
I have taken this photo this morning very consciously.
In the picture you see my two rabbits. or… my furry roommates as I sometimes like to say ^^
They really do own my heart (but they are happy to share my heart with others, too, generally they strike me as quite generous …) This is the first reason why I chose them for today.
As you can see, they sit very close to each other. It’s because they really care about each other. Of course I – as well as all of you – have seen tv documentaries about love between animals… but it’s quite a different thing to really be able to watch these two dear souls cuddling, taking care of each other’s fur by licking the other one all over, quietly sitting next to each other and sometimes even resting their heads on the other’s back.
As the small one, Finn, isn’t doing too well at the moment, his “wife” Nini takes good care of him. I think the photo might express it somehow. At least to me it does. Finn hadn’t eaten for about 30 hours last week, and I am amazed that he made such a good recovery. And ..ahem..besides that, Finn might be one of the very few rabbits on this planet for whom Rilke’s Duinese Elegies have been read (he loves the sound of human voices talking, so as he refused to eat… I kind of thought I could at least feed his little soul a bit…)
