On my way home tonight, I was going through a residential area and saw something in the middle of the road. So I stopped abruptly. It was a baby bunny. Just a little thing. And it wasn’t moving. Meaning it was caught in my headlights. I wasn’t sure what to do. I honked my horn and he took off. Then he did a few flips, clearly freaked out. It makes me nervous. I hope it was out of fear and not prior injury.

He stopped next to a car parked on the side of the road. There was a car behind me, so I said a quick prayer that the little guy wouldn’t dart back out into the road, and drove on. I was watching the car behind me, nervous that they would hit the little guy.

I don’t think the car initially knew why I had stopped, but I think he figured it out quickly. He was sort of swerving toward the bunny’s position, but suddenly stopped and slowly moved to the other side.

Weirdly enough, a block later, with the same car behind me, there was a cat in the middle of the road I had to stop for.
