Freckles hopped over to her plate of lettuce and ate a leaf. Scrambles wiggled and whined, begging to get down to the floor to investigate the rabbit. When Freckles seemed relaxed, my son set Scrambles onto the floor, saying, “Stay back. Leave the bunny alone.”
Scrambles moved near the plate, but cautiously and curiously watched Freckles eat her lettuce. They looked so sweet there together. Somehow I knew it wouldn’t last.
