I’m in love with the bunnies. I did not expect to like them this much. Someone help me!
They’re just so…I don’t know what the word for it is. They don’t snuggle, but they hop around and are very playful. They’re incredibly adorable and full of personality.
Best of all they’re actually bonding with us, unlike a hamster or some other small furry pet. They actually recognize us and are happy to see us.
Tonight Ada apparently opened the crate door to pet them while we were outside locking up the chickens at 9:45. At 11:00 Rosie was begging me to bring her a new bandaid for her toe. I happened to walk past the window and glance out to see something weird looking running past in the shadows.
My first thought was that a raccoon was coming to get in that crate and eat my bunnies. The crate has wide gaps and isn’t predator proof at all. (I will be so relieved when I finally finish the Bunny Hutch Palace!) The crate they are in is on the porch by the front door, right under the porch light. I doubt any predators would come up there, especially since my dogs are sleeping inside right under the window and the cats patrol the porch all night long. But it still makes me paranoid, of course.
I took a closer look out of the window only to realize with a jolt that it wasn’t a raccoon at all. It was Molchy Molch, Ada’s gray bunny!
I ran outside and only saw Molchy, no Sirius Black in sight. I was so terrified he was hiding way under the house somewhere or he’d been eaten, or maybe we’d just never find him. Rosie came running outside sobbing. Ada knew she’d left the cage door open and had her head covered in bed, also sobbing.
At first I tried to chase Molchy Molch in the dark, but then I realized it would be smarter to just sit down and wait for him to come say hello. Sure enough that worked instantly, and Sirius also popped out of the shadows begging to be petted on the head. Thank goodness for loving bunnies! I scooped them up one by one and deposited them right back in the crate.
I just got out of bed to double check and make sure they were still safe and secure in there.
They were just having an adventure on the porch, no big deal…they were happily zooming all over in the dark from the front door around to the kitchen door, doing that adorable little hind leg kick thing they do.
Baby H is putting a lot of pressure everywhere in my belly tonight. I think he must have had another growth spurt.
He’s extremely active tonight too. Not sure what’s going on in there! He seems to be a night owl. That could be bad for my sleep!
