From Bob and Georganne Lenham of Wild Rose Rescue Ranch in Texas.
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.

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!
Now, Noah helps out with many rescue babies here at the ranch…
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.
Noah is truly, truly a God-send.
He will cover you with His feathers
And under His wings you will find refuge.
