Cannot believe that it has been 14 years.
Every now and then, I’ll take a peek to have a little look.
A few moments to listen.
The noises are still deafening.
Indeed, same sh*t different day.
Whether or not we’re still here is anyone’s guess.
But it’s back to hibernating…
What a year it has been!
Just like a tiny blip, Christmas is upon us once again. Hope we will all have a better 2021 and that it will be a year of recovery and healing.
Nonetheless, I hope the holiday season brings warmth, joy, and love to your home!
Though I no longer have live rabbits, I have quite a huge collection of rabbit figurines, collectibles, and decorations.
Today, I added these…
And they are stinking cute!
Looking at photos of rabbits spending their time sleeping in their quarters made me ponder how they actually feel in terms of relativity. I wonder how long is an hour to them and if they are able to keep time. Most of us spend our time away from home and our pets tend to have very long waiting time. Measuring in human hours, I would be bored to death doing nothing but waiting. As humans, we are able to find things to occupy ourselves especially now that we have the internet on our palm most of the time.
How does it actually feel as a rabbit, a dog, or a cat staying home all day long waiting for our owner to be back home?
Taking the definition of hobby, I guess that’s how it is – only in our free time. It seemed that we’ll only have time for our pets whenever we have extra time to spare unless we ensure that we make time for them daily.
Out of the twenty four hours a day, I am sure we will be able to find at least an hour or two to spend with our pets. Then again, we will never be able to feel and know if animals have a sense of relativity – space and time that is….
We know for a fact that there are only 24 hours in a day but have you ever wonder what that means to a rabbit? How does a rabbit perceive time? Do they know or remember the past or even yearn for the future? How long does a minute feels like being a rabbit?
I believe that pain is the only feeling an animal can feel and depends on which species, some are known to feel pleasure while others do not.
Do rabbits feel lonely when left alone? Perhaps if we know for sure that rabbits can perceive time, we might be able to also conclude that rabbits can feel loneliness. That is because loneliness increases over time as in being alone for a long period of time brings about the feeling of insufficient interaction with another living thing.
Just imagine living life without the constraint of time – no year, month, week, day, hour, minute or second. I believe most animals are built like that because unlike humans with very well developed intelligence, they have no knowledge of time.
I spent a little time searching the internet regarding this topic and found an interesting article. For those interested, you can read it here.
Like the white rabbit, I must say “oh my furry whiskers I’m late I’m late I’m late”.
And I have to add that I am late for bed. Good night everyone and have a wonderful week ahead!
P/S: How can a rabbit hold a pocket watch when it cannot perceive time?
