Silly Rabbit... Tricks are for Kids!

Back in September Mike and I (on a day of insanity) decided to get a bunny for the "farm". Take a look back at my October blog post about the little guy/girl. To top it all off we have no idea if it is a boy or a girl.

With the hours Mike works he didn't have any time to make the little bunny a hutch before the cold weather set in. So, we kept it in a dog cage out in the shed. Haley was the primary one responsible for cleaning the cage, feeding and watering the little guy.

A few months ago on a really beautiful weather day, Mike decided to move it onto the grass in the cage. Eventually the door got opened, and little bunny was allowed to roam around the yard. It didn't wander far! Haley would catch it at the end of the day and put it back in the shed. After some time of this routine little bunny got wise to those tricks, and finally one night was left to wander all over.

There was a morning when Mike was checking the oil in my car and was completely startled by the crazy little bunny who learned to climb into the engine compartment of my car!! It was quite the sight to see my husband jump when opening the hood only to see bunny staring up at him. We believe the little bunny has even gone for a ride or 2 in there!!

Now bunny, disappears for days and just when we believe he may have finally met his demise never to be seen again he reappears in the front yard nibbling the clover, or playing in the yard with the cat.
This little bunny that we bought for only $5, has brought us more entertainment than anything!

And no, if you are wondering, he has not bothered the garden... yet!


  1. I love letting our bunnies go free in the house! They are usually really good about keeping the potty activities in the cage and they love to be pet and loved on by the kids. I wish we could let them roam outside, but I fear for them with all the coyotes and free range dogs we have in our neck of the woods. Bunnies are far more enjoyable outside the cage. :)
