Whoever said, “It’s just a rabbit” has obviously never loved a rabbit. Best4Bunny.com
This summer, my daughter and her family are fostering bunnies. Yep, it’s a thing. People buy bunnies, decide they don’t want them or have more bunnies —“I thought they were both males”— then take the unwanted bunnies to a shelter.
A shelter also has dogs and other animals who are natural enemies of bunnies, causing them fear and anxiety. So, bunnies go to foster homes where they get lots of love, attention, and treats in a safe environment where they can flourish. They also learn what’s it’s like to be a family pet so, when they’re adopted, they’ll be ready.
The world can be a scary place for humans too. We also need love, attention, a secure environment, and treats—lots of treats.
Affirmation: I thrive in a safe and secure environment.
Coaching questions: What makes your environment feel safe and secure or not? How do you create a safe and secure environment for others? Who/what makes you feel anxious?
