If you want to see the opposite of contrary, check this lady out.
My last installment to the KittyBunnyChicken was devoted to Goldie and her new home with this cool “chick”. I had so many pictures of my visit, I had to divide the post in two parts. So HERE COME THE BUNNIES!
Mary has a large maze of bunny pens, coops, hutches and bunkers on her property. She receives the little structures from feed stores, yard sales, gifts etc. Most of them show the wear and tear of years of use, but she keeps them in good working order through regular maintenance and cleanings. They make a great group of homes for her bunnies who she tries to pair bond (male and female cohabitation) within each little area.
In addition to hutches, Mary has made some “bunny bunkers” in and around the fences that allow buns to go underground to stay cool, but they’ve been reinforced with cinder blocks. Once she had so much burrowing that the pathways were caving in!
And if feeding and caring for abandoned bunnies and chickens weren’t enough, my friend provides food for the hungry birds and squirrels at her home.
She has many beautiful trinkets and feeders hanging from the amazing tree. You can’t see it all but there are displays of art all around her yard. Recently she has begun a fun hobby. She makes art from broken pottery. I can’t wait to see her creations. I know they’ll be expressions of beauty and inspiration from a very special person. I have a lot of admiration for Mary because of her tireless devotion to animals and her optimistic attitude about life in general.
We need more folks like this. I’m constantly surprised and amazed at the wonderful people I’ve met thru the love of animals. (And you know who you are, Debbie, Mary, Jean, etc.)
Thanks again, my friend for providing homes for my foster bunny & chicken. You are the wind beneath my wings…and paws…and talons…and tails. 🙂
