Okay, so Rodger the rescued rabbit may be a small, ceramic figurine but I'm proud just the same. He was waiting for me at the cash/wrap when I came into work the other day with a severed leg. When I had a moment I broke out the super glue and mended his wound. It took a few tries: the pieces were small and delicate and I glued them to my fingers in the process. And then I glued Rodger to the counter, glued my hand to the counter, glued my hand to Rodger and glued my hands together. Sadly, I already knew from past experience that I should avoid super glue at all costs.
Either way my efforts paid off. I purchased Rodger as-is for half price (employee discount does not apply). It may seem silly that I have such a soft spot for an inanimate rabbit, but I guess this is my way for preparing for future rescues of real rabbits. It will take a lot more patience than it will super glue, but I hope that rabbits are always a part of my life. I will one day make up for buying Umbra by saving those less fortunate lagomorphs.
I think that this event lead to a dream where I had three rabbits, including Umbra, and acquired a forth foster, who I hoped would be Umbra's husbun. The match wasn't to be, but at least I have realistic expectations in my subconscious wanderings.
I also had a pet vulture. Don't ask me why.
