What I Noticed First

There were a lot of changes in my life when I got to my new home. The thing that I felt right away was the loneliness. I actually missed my family members. Before, there were times that I wished for just another inch of space, of clean air to breath. But now... all that I had was space. It was frightening, in a way. I could hear the air vibrating all around me, but it was full of nothing. I could feel my own heart beat in the absence of other bodies pressed against mine. Don't get me wrong, it is not pleasant to be confined so closely as we were. We were kept in our own filth and didn't even have enough room to turn around in. It was just such a big change.

Mom put a big soft Bunny in with me. Only she didn't move, and she didn't smell like a bunny. I decided pretty fast that she wasn't a real bunny at all. I still cuddled up to her, it helped me to sleep. Also I liked to climb on her so that I could see what was going on outside of my cage. I think it was nice of my new Mom to think that maybe I was lonely, and try to find a friend for me. I just wished it was a real bunny. I was sure that I could smell others in the house...
