Save a life, adopt a pet
After a particularly bad night's sleep (fevers give me the most horrific nightmares) my folks and brother took me out shopping (for new shoes and earrings which I didn't manage to get!) I've been left tired and slightly emotional.
I spent some time with the older of my rescue rabbits (they free range in a spare bedroom), and nothing can describe how I feel when they look at me with their little eyes full of adoration (or put their soft paws on my knee looking for a treat!) How people could have not wanted them in the first place breaks my heart- same applies for the rest of the rescues I have the fortune to share my life and home with.
Save a life next time you want a pet, adopt don't shop. They are so grateful for your love, and I swear they know how lucky they are.
