Zelda and Bramble have shared our home since March 2016. They had been abandoned in a grocery store parking lot in Watkins Glen, NY, during a February rainstorm. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan brought the duo to Farm Sanctuary, where Abbie was a caregiver. Bramble’s and Zelda’s strong and distinct personalities, friendliness despite their rough history, and mutual devotion were clear, and we knew right away that they would be moving in with us! They have enriched our lives beyond description and we are so grateful for our wonderful little friends! It has been fun getting to know their individual quirks, their inquisitive and communicative nature, and the roles they fulfill in each others’ lives. When they take over the world, Zelda will be the mad scientist and safecracker, while Bramble will ask nicely, wiggle his luxurious cheeks, and get exactly what he wants!
Zelda and Bramble now live in their own room in our house, a palace that Kevin customized based on their interests, complete with a window perch/jungle gym, interactive peg board walls, and a private deck with a bunny door so they can come and go as they please. They love tearing in and out of their room, watching the sun rise and set from their deck, sitting in the window and overlooking their domain, and requesting dandelion offerings from passing subjects.
