How it all began...The offer of freedom


Freckles’ coloring definitely matched her name. She was snow white with freckles of black spots and dark smudges over her back and head. Her black ears and little white nose twitched constantly, filtering the newness surrounding her. She sniffed at the carrot I offered but did not take it. I placed it beside the bowl of alfalfa pellets and withdrew, leaving the cage door open to allow her to explore when she was ready.

"Filtering the newness around her." Really really nice!

I'm starting to like Freckles, and to envy her a bit.
