The Three Stooges

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

― Anatole France

“Animals are such agreeable friends―they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.”

― George Eliot

Here is a post that has nothing to do with hiking!

We have three members of our family who bring a great deal of happiness to the humans in our house. You have seen Jase a few times and he is the biggest of the three. Please don’t make the mistake of thinking that because he is the largest animal that he rules the roost. He takes the brunt of the abuse from the other two. (Never mean spirited!)

Luna, the rabbit, can  be the most intimidating of the three. Totally unassuming, she roams around the house and drinks water out of the dogs water dish and will not let him drink until she is finished! If he tries, Luna will let him know he needs to wait. Hmmm…the dog weighs 90 pounds!

Serius the cat, thinks that he is stealthy but he is not to good at it. He spends most of his time attacking the dog (never maliciously) and waits for the dog to respond. Much to his dismay, the dog never even tries to retaliate. But he keeps trying.

Anyway, it’s great having three animals with such different personalities in the house. Even though they kind of harass each other from time to time, it’s always nice to see the rabbit and the cat sleeping together or the dog and the cat sitting with each other on the couch. Each one is a full member of the family!!!

We couldn’t find Luna until we looked under my daughter’s bed. She probably wanted to be left alone!

    There is nothing more interesting than animal personalities. I think we tend to try to humanize them. I’ve had cats that I thought were thinking deep, philosophical thoughts, but were probably sleeping with eyes open. Your animals are adorable, cool looking and an odd combination, all at once. And wonderful photos.

      Thank you! The best thing about these three is that they all get along. I thought when we added the cat a little over a year ago that he would try and eat the bunny. I was shocked one day when I went into my daughters room and the rabbit was lying on its back and the cat was kneading his claws on his belly! Of course I ran to get my camera and that spooked them. Needless to say, no awesome picture!
