I’m sure I’ve heard it said somewhere that dogs eat rabbits and rabbits run away from dogs. But I don’t think these two have heard it. All right, it’s obvious the poor dog wants to take a nap, he doesn’t feel like chasing anything. But does he have to let the bunny snuggle him all over? You’d think the bunny loves the dog. And maybe he does.
I’ve never had a pet rabbit–look what I’ve been missing! *sigh* My cats will have to do.
I think somebody told me once that you shouldn’t give pet bunnies baths or showers. The one getting showered in this video seems to be bearing up very well. Really, though, some animals do a very good job of grooming themselves and grooming each other. We need not interfere.
Although all bets are off when your dog rolls in something rotten.
You should see all the stinkin’ nooze I chose not to cover today! Don’t worry, we’ll never run out. Meanwhile, something quite a bit more wholesome–!
We gave you dogs and bunnies a couple days ago, so today it’s cats and bunnies. Quintessential carnivore meets quintessential (holy moley, I used it twice in one sentence!) prey animal… and nobody gets eaten. Lots of play and cuddling. Watch it as many times as you please!
I can easily imagine my mother’s horrified outburst at walking into the dining room and finding the rabbit and the dog on the table.
It’s extraordinary, though, that dogs and bunnies can play together without the bunny getting eaten. It’s because animals are smart enough to learn ways of life that owe nothing to their supposed “instincts”–if there even is such a thing, which I’m beginning to doubt. The only thing typical about animals is the ease with which they break out of typical.
Gotcha with that headline, didn’t I? Sorry, but I didn’t know what to call this video. It is about bunnies, though–that much is accurate.
Little-known Fact: “Tarzan of the Apes” was originally “Tarzan of the Rabbits,” but the sociological ramifications were too much for the young Edgar Rice Burroughs to deal with.
I’ve never had a pet rabbit, although I’ve always loved them. Something tells me our two cats would be afraid of a bunny.
Anyway, here are cats and bunnies playing and cuddling together. Don’t worry about the bunnies: none of them seems the least bit afraid. And it’s not always the cat chasing the rabbit: just as often, it’s the other way around.
All right, they can’t play Clue, or Parcheesi, or Mad-Libs; but rabbits and dogs do like to play, and they’ll play with each other. Who says the dogs always eat the bunnies?
I think these unexpected animal friendships are a peek into what’s in store for us when God finishes His work of reclaiming and restoring His creation.
So the goofy cat gets herself trapped in the tool shed, can’t get out–but not to worry, the bunny know just what to do. Obviously this bunny saw The Great Escape. The solution: dig a tunnel! There aren’t even any Luftwaffe guards who have to be bribed to look the other way.
As for gratitude–well, one can’t have everything.
I think God put baby rabbits and a lot of other animals in the world to keep us from going insane. I can just feel my blood pressure going down as I watch this. Thank you, Lord. We wouldn’t have thought of it, but you did.
Yeah, I’m in the mood for bunnies. Let’s bunny up.
I’ll always remember the night three or four baby cottontails chased in other around and around in circles–with me at the center of the circle. Kind of an honor, really. I suspect they thought I was a tree. I have that effect on some people.
