Elliot and Random Quote

Friday, March 30th, 2018

My husband set up his website to randomly pair photos with quotes.
Sometimes interesting pairings occur.

Elliot

Elliot loves to shred fabric.
We have a concrete tube on the sofa hoping she will shred it instead of the sofa.


Found yesterday–

Sofa Shred

But notice the shredded paper, right side of the photo. So, sort of works.

After a short time this occurred–

What was the patina used for? I strung together 3 kinds of shiny steel washers in code for a 3-bunny gravemarker.

This is what the washers looked like when they were removed from the solution.

And now as part of the grave marker–

Eventually the piece should become rustier, more aged, a bit more similar to the oxidized bunny marker.

This is another memorial for a bunny burial space.

Mr Smith Memorial Piece

Used the same washers to make the coded memorial piece. I suspect that they have oxidized because the area of the garden gets watered frequently and the little inlaid ceramic cup does not have a drainage hole.

How many bunnies do I have buried in my courtyard? Eight. That sounds like a lot of bunnies. Eight bunnies have lived with me during the past 25 years. My oldest bunny lived a long, but not long enough 13 years.

Elliot is our rescue bunny. We put concrete forming tubes on the sofa to prevent her from tearing up the sofa.

Shredded Tube

Now she shreds the inside of the tube rather than the sofa.

Elliot checked out the stuffed bunnies under the tree. Took a bite of the tree. Then rearranged the bunnies so she could sit on the red mat.


Make Mine Chocolate

Easter

Make Mine Chocolate is a campaign to educate and deter folks from purchasing bunnies for Easter. Often those bunnies end up in shelters after a few months or worse, released to fend for themselves.

Rabbits should not be an impulse buy. When properly cared for a domestic rabbit can live over 10 years. That is a commitment.

There are loads of stuffed plush bunnies that can be left alone in a room, do not require food, or veterinary care.

Or stick to purchasing chocolate bunnies.



Bob, the lovebird in the photo was rescued. He was found flying in my garden on a Sunday afternoon in June of 2016. We attempted to catch him with no luck. The next afternoon he returned. I wrote a post about how we were able to capture him.

We were unable to locate his family. So, he has found a forever home with us, two bunnies, and a cockatiel.

Recently, a family member mentioned seeing a flock of lovebirds in a nearby park. We haven’t yet visited the park. Someday we might check it out.
