I think I might’ve posted this once before, but what the heck. It’s been very stressful around here today (hot and sticky, too!), and I thought we needed something like this.
I never saw a white rabbit with such big dark eyes.
And maybe we just got a glimpse into paradise.
Where did these four baby bunnies come from, and why is the cat so cozy with them? Anyone would think she saw them as–well, sort of funny-looking kittens.
The wild bunnies in our neighborhood left much to be desired as mothers. It wouldn’t surprise me if a cat could do a better job.
We used to have a lot of wild bunnies around here. They became quite friendly with us.
But we didn’t have any domestic rabbits to mix in with them. I wonder what’s going on in this video. Are they playing, or is this a territorial dispute?
Let’s ask “Thewhiterabbit”…
Look how little, how perfect, this baby bunny is!
We used to have baby bunnies in our garden, chasing each other and playing tag around the vegetables. Once they played tag around me. It was so nice to have them feeding on clover all around me as I sat outside and wrote.
I never tried to handle any of them, though. But I kind of wish I had.
Somehow this kitten got stuck in the bunny’s cage; and the bunny takes up the challenge of getting him out. But how? It’s a tricky proposition when you don’t have hands.
Yes, it takes the bunny four minutes to get the kitten out of the cage. We need not hold our breath waiting for the cat to show its gratitude.
I never had a pet bunny, and I’m afraid my lizards were never into playing. I know I’ve missed out on something good.
Oh, I remember the baby bunnies playing in Patty’s garden! And one night they scampered around me and around as I smoked my pipe. I wonder what they thought I was.
How many dogs would be asked to turn in their badges over this–fraternizing with rabbits?
My wife said to me today, “What’s the matter with you? You sound like Jacob Marley’s ghost.”
“I feel like Marley’s ghost,” I said.
Either a puppy or a bunny would knock me out cold–and it’d do me a world of good.
You’re a cat, you’re taking a nap in this nice, snug basket that’s just the right size and shape–and of course you won’t be allowed to enjoy it. This time it’s a bunny who does everything but grab a bugle and blow Reveille.
But they are obviously friends. Domestication does some funny things.
I’m back! Meanwhile, I hope some of you will browse the archives and tell me some posts you really liked, from years ago. Maybe I can re-post them.
Down to business: I don’t think I’ve ever known an animal that would eat a lemon. A camel, maybe? The bunny in this video has never had a lemon, but that first taste is all he needs. Maybe he’s eccentric.
How do pet rabbits amuse themselves? Let me count the ways! Tearing paper, jumping up and down on furniture, chewing balloons, playing chase with a baby dachshund…
It’s said that a former prime minister of Norway used to do all these things; but he was not a rabbit.
