I've spent a lot of time today being so sad about all the partisan bickering over the health care issues, and why it became such a big issue that our president wanted to speak to our school kids, like George Bush Sr. did during his term.
Last night I started to knit a baby blanket to donate to new babies born in Afghanistan through the Afghans for Afghans project. Imagine giving birth while we're bombing their villages and killing civilians we say we don't want to kill. Women to women...politics or not...it's a rotten deal.
Then, this afternoon, my friend Annie sent this to me. It was just what I needed. Why can't humans manage what these babies did?
The Jesusita Fire in Santa Barbara, CA caused these two to take shelter together. The fawn is about 3 days old and the bobcat about 3 weeks old.
They immediately bonded and snuggled together under a desk in the Santa Barbara County Dispatch Office for several hours.
Animal Planet reported that the bobcat kitten was rescued near
Arnold Schwarzenegger's ranch, where it was dehydrated and near death.
They rescued the fawn during the wildfire.
Although wild animals, especially of separate species, are never placed together due to regulations, in this emergency situation, they had no choice. During the mayhem of the fire, they were forced to put animals anywhere they could, since they had run out of crates large enough for the fawn. The kitten ran to the fawn, and it was instant bonding.
