Tender, Tents and Tolerating!
It is not often whee are sharing. In fact Mummy has believed for a very long time that Nibbles merely tolerates me but you may have noticed in the last post whee like to cuddle up together sometimes. This is a source of great amusement to the hoomans who claim to remember the first few wheeks I was part of the family and how Nibbles looked like a new mother or father who could not get the baby to sleep through the night. I was young and rather hyperactive! However they also nicknamed me Mojo for a little while because Nibbles was very sad over the loss of his friend Nugget and I brought back his zest for life.
The bond whee share is more that of Father and Son rather than brothers as Nibbles and Nugget were. He berates me if I am naughty and keep him awake with antics. I keep him young by chasing and playing games with him. I get so enthusiastic about veggie time that he has no choice but to be excited too.
As he has gotten older, he sometimes forgets to eat and drink and is a little doddery but I make sure he moves around and does things. In return when I was ill he sat at my side and nudged me over to the food bowl at breakfast time. Whee particularly love to share our blue tent and doze in it on warm days in the garden:
Some say animals do not love or do not understand hooman concepts of love. But if whee were purely instinct driven animals why would whee take care of the weak ones in our herd and mourn losses so deeply that whee nearly give up living ourselves? Sometimes with our basic right and wrong morals and consideration for one another, Mummy thinks whee show more humanity than some hoomans she knows.
Who are you closest to? Is it another animal or a hooman? And hoomans, do you believe that animals ‘love’?
