We were at Marley’s Christmas party and all of us were out running in his garden … When my heightened sense of prey caught a sniff of something different …My nose immediately took me to an interesting “house”Mummy, what’s in there? Yaena told me that if I am patient, she would show me. She took out of it this squirrel lookalike – but bigger than the ones we chase in the park. I was totally intriguedAs I inched closer to smell itWhy didn’t it run away like those squirrels in the park?Whoa! There’s another one but bigger!!!!! And this one doesn’t look like a squirrel at all.
Oh my goodness gracious me! It’s a rabbit!!! And he’s called Blue. And the other one is called Bella.
They totally had me – for the rest of our visit, I continued to be intrigued. I sat and stared And thought to get a little closer What are they doing in there?The others were wondering what I was staring so intently at … There are two rabbits in there, guys! Jaffa said – what should we do about it?Well, I needed to have a better view!
So I jumped up on the rabbit hutch (that’s what they told me it’s called) and peeked in from above Then all the others started to be curious about them too – but Jaffa, who hasn’t done agility like I had, went up to the side wall Oh, I see, this is an easier way to see themOr there’s a flower pot I can stand on as well.Rabbits, do you want to come out to play?
May’s comment: I wonder what Darcy would have done with them if they were out. She would probably be really intrigued. And then if they hopped, she would have barked at them. But for now, she can just look at them in the hutch. She was extremely gentle when introduced and more curious than anything else.
For all concerned, NO RABBITS WERE HARMED!!!!
In London, foxes roam the gardens and streets at night and these rabbits are used to getting visitors – foxes with intention! Thank goodness they are safe in their hutch.
