|Me watching Loki eat his food--I got in trouble for this|
My name is Sadie and I used to be a stray until I found a wonderful family to take me in. Now, I live my life as a spoiled princess, but am always grateful for the kindness strangers showed me. I find life to be very interesting, and so, with help from one of my humans, I have created this blog to share my stories with the world.

|Baby rabbits in our planter|
I was watching out the window when I saw movement in one of Jen's big pots. She has green onions and a bell pepper plant growing in that pot. Normally that is boring, but the green onions were moving! I watched the pot and saw a little rabbit peek his head out! Jen noticed the babies too and said it looked like there were five of them. She knew about this long before I did!
After a couple weeks, the rabbits started looking out more. Jen eventually had to help a few get out of the pot, but some of them jumped down and seemed to be okay. We don't know if they were old enough to leave the nest or if they just wanted to explore. Unfortunately, it was not possible for them to get back to their nest once they left--the pot is maybe 18inches high. A really safe spot for a nest, aside from the babies not being able to get back to it.
We have seen the mother rabbit occasionally, so we think the babies are hiding in the garden. There are plenty of places for them to hide out there and a lot of things for bunnies to eat, like clover. We have a hawk that lives nearby, so we are all hoping that he doesn't spot the little ones. And if he does, well...that's the thing about nature: sometimes it's cruel.
Now that the bunnies are gone, I'm back to watching birds. It isn't as exciting. With the heat lately, I've mostly just been laying around on the floor. Jen says I'm being dramatic, acting like it's hot even though the air conditioner is on. What can I say? I do have a lot of fur!

The Auto Feeder is Mine!

Loki went to the vet again. This time I could tell it was our regular vet. He seems to be feeling better but is definitely not as healthy as he used to be.
He has been in and out of the litter boxes repeatedly for days. He's peeing a lot and was trying to poop. He now gets something called Miralax in his food. He gets 1/8th of a teaspoon every morning with breakfast. That has definitely helped him to poop.
Jen has been doing much better. She says that Loki's will to live is strong and that he's always been a fighter. He seems to be doing better too, but I know that one day he will no longer be with us. At least for now we can still enjoy his company. We all thought we were going to lose him.
