countbryceula said: I just want to say that when I read "Coraline," I was a little girl who was afraid of everything. Not only did that book satisfy my strange need to read things that scared me, but it taught me to be brave. In a society in which girls are socialized to be scared and to be passive, this lesson of bravery was especially important for my nine-year-old self. So thank you for creating a young precocious female protagonist who was brave, even when she found herself living in a very, very scary world.
… which is really all I ever wanted that book to do.
I’m glad it helped.
These little bunnies, about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not survive, and these three were not doing very well.
Enter Noah-the non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that we have here in rehab.
Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in-even sleeping in front of the door to the cage. Then, 2 days ago, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage, so I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside. And to my surprise-there was the tiny bunny-under Noah’s wing-sound asleep!
The bunny had crawled through the cage-preferring a featherbed, no doubt. Now, they are all together, and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah’s feathers, he extends his wings out to surround them-and they snuggle. When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak!
How wonderful it is to have a full-time soft-feathered nurturer here at the rescue ranch! He cuddles with all the babies as they snuggle under his warm feathers…and he “coos” as if singing them to sleep with a lullaby.
holy shit i’m crying
That is so precious!
feminism never made me hate men but the reaction to feminism sure as shit did
some men* you literally cannot hate people you’ve never met or even heard of.
