Basil the Bunny is in Intensive Care. Please pray for his recovery!
If you read this blog regularly you already know I'm a loon. I'm particularly loony when it comes to animals. Last week, our good friend Kathy Blumenstock (who writes for our KnitchMagazine) let us know about Basil the Bunny in Edinburgh.
Poor Basil was not treated well by his original owners and was rescued by a local animal protection group. He's now in a foster home where he's being treated with loving care. You can see that he needs to wear bunny socks. That's because his paws were so badly injured as a result of mistreatment.
Unfortunately, over the weekend, Basil took a turn for the worst. So he needs our prayers. If any of you have a special prayer line to St. Francis of Assisi, please let him know that Basil needs his help.
Yarnmarket has contributed a gift certificate to help with fund-raising. We sure do hope that Basil gets better. He looks like a very sweet bunny and Alex and I are hoping to meet him if we make it to Edinburgh next summer.

Amazing world we live in, isn't it? Who would have thought that a sick bunny in Edinburgh would get worldwide attention?
