The Lord said I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father appointed unto me...that ye may eat and drink at my table and sit on thrones. St. Luke 22: 29-30

We oft' read of wildlife kingdoms
That may include a squirrel or a hare
In a child's moral book of fable...
Do we actually see them share
Eats or drinks at the same table?

I am sure the rabbit wouldn't care
By nature he is known to be curious.
But the squirrel is a different story;
Notorious for acting furious
Engaged in his throne of glory!

Poetry by me, AJP

Earlier today my husband told me about the Eastern Cottontail rabbit who was taking up residence in the bottom of the pine tree he'd cut down earlier in December...We had used the top of it for our Christmas tree...The bottom section resting in the snow is in view of our kitchen window behind our sink.. (I wasn't too surprised as I had seen this rabbit eating on a rock a few nights ago (not far from the tree) where my husband scatters sunflower seeds for some of the wildlife who prefer the rock to the feeders.

I happened to look out at that moment then to see these two creatures of the rodent family who arrived at the same time to eat sunflowers seeds that had got kicked off from the "food rock" . From all appearances it looks like the Eastern Cottontail and Fox Squirrel are great friends...Stay tuned for my next picture which I anticipated the outcome when the curious rabbit got too close to the squirrel.
