Then I shot them both and had a hare and venison casserole for dinner. No offense, n_o_d, but these cute animals-of-different-species-as-pals-awwaintdatcute stories are getting old.

Calling forth one of my more beloved aural parasites. I don't mind. You can give me earworms, if you wants to.

speak for yourself - i myself loves a new example of interspecies communion - it does me a world of good, if only that it keeps me from blastin' to kingdom-come all the bastids intent on diminishing & ridiculing such pleasures

p.s. Thumper rules!

It's okay, everyone. Don't panic. We can handle it. After a closer look, it's obvious that the rabbit only likes the deer ironically.

Does that mean the deer has hipster hare?

Personally my favorite part was the google translations.

In spring (May 2005) is a leading Ricke from the car seriously injured and died shortly afterwards. A few hours later found her stroller orphan kid and give him the bottle rearing in order to save him.

One day immersed in a wild rabbit and adheres near the kids on.

Those are tearjerkers, right there.

I remember the last time I was immersed in a wild rabbit. Thankfully, no kids near.
Much too complicated to explain.

Weren't the forties musically anerable?

they ARE. All that harmony and bing-bing-bing melody. I've had days of this stuck in my head. It makes shopping for kale alot more interesting.


Also, Best story of cross-species flirting: A friend was in an aviary, with this flute. In the middle of this vast noise of bird was a little garden. He played a few notes on his flute and the noise STOPPED. DEAD. Two beats. Then a huge noise in his direction, really screaming. He looks down. A Quail and a Loon are sitting in the garden, a few steps away. He plays the same notes again to them. The Quail and the Loon kinda...look at each other, and then move closer. He plays more notes, they stop, and take another step. He played the first notes. The Quail walked up to the garden rail and chirped back the notes. At the end, they where within arms reach. It was the most Disney-esque werido thing I'd seen. They really seemed to want to communicate with him.

Gave me hope for our ability to understand an Alien race, but then again, we're shaky with communicating with other mammals, let alone super-intelligent spores from the Glastonbury Nebulae.

I can't help it. I love this stuff. Tigers adopting (!) orphaned pigs, dogs accepting baby squirrels into their litters, gorilla with her pet kitten, abandoned fawn and giant mastiff napping together, and let us not forget the tortoise who adopted the hippo after the tsunami... there's something remarkable about it all. I don't think they're some kind of "meaning of life" examples to us all, but it's certainly something that engenders a sense of wonder and beauty about the animal kingdom in the way that watching a lion chase down and kill a zebra emphatically does not.

Besides - OMG KYOOOOOT!

Well, the haters can hate all they want, it's undeniably cute.

That said; this picture should be captioned as such:

Deer: I want some of this

Bunny: Mother-fucker, you touch my grass and I will end you.

Deer: I thought we were friends

Bunny: Ain't got nothin' to do with it, that grass is mine, and you are gettin' all up in my shit. Back the fuck off.

Ah Jon...see, we've known each other for so long that I know your irascible response is just hiding your squishy, squishy love-bunny heart. Come on, you can admit it to us. We're your friends. I promise we won't laugh at your "Hang in there, Friday's coming" poster.
