The Library Bunnies
The mama cottontail rabbit that live under the library has had her second batch of kittens for the season and much joy accompanies the sight of such a precious little bunny. This is an annual occurrence, but this no less diminished my pleasure in watching them. I mean, I think just about all babies (rabbit, human, or otherwise) are just precious and heart-warming in their innocent sweetness and softness and vulnerability.
The whole library, staff and students, were just absolutely taken with the first batch who would boldly sit right by the front entrance as people passed them, even when they were so tiny you could probably fit all of them in your shoe! The four kittens would cause quite a stir. There were many days where just about every person who came in to the library came in talking about the bunnies. "Did you guys know you've got bunnies out there?!" "Aren't those the cutest little rabbits ever?!" "Have you see those babies out there?" And so on.
