Welcome to Rabbit Rescue

A handful of bun
"Good Afternoon and welcome to Rabbit Rescue". 

Well, the human has taken a slight lead, by liberating another baby bunny from the clutches of three marauding tigers last night. The other day, I had locked the cats OUT to prevent them coming in with their catches. Boy, do they know how to play me at my own game! Bring it in and keep quiet about it, until they can surprise me, once we are all shut on the inside and I'm lulled into a false sense of security, because you think they can't come in with anything else then.

Yesterday was sunny and dry, so I opened all the windows to give the house a dose of fresh air. I'd gone to the utility room at one point to find three of the cats in there, when they should have been outside enjoying the weather. Another was lying on the floor of the back room, looking like he was watching a mousehole, so I suspected they were up to something, but if it had hidden itself and they couldn't find it, well, nor would I. I left them to it and promptly forgot about it.

After dinner at 6 p.m. (yes, they are creatures of habit), the cats are kept in for the night and they'd all settled nicely in the back room. This is normal, so I thought nothing of it. Until around 10.30 p.m.

There I was quietly minding my own business, when a screech erupts. When I go out back to investigate, sure enough, three of them had cornered the tiny rabbit out in the utility room. Obviously he'd hidden under something earlier and finally decided to venture out. And they were still waiting! Bullies! It takes three of them to torment the poor little thing. They should be ashamed.

No, I don't know if they're capable of doing this deliberately, but coincidence or not, it was pretty ironic in a "That'll teach her to lock us outside", kind of way.

Of course they didn't reckon on the fact that they also couldn't escape with it, so I was able to rescue it from them with ease. My mother is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. The rabbit had actually hidden in what will be her bedroom while she's here and I can't wait to see her face if they repeat this process and she's suddenly woken up, surrounded by wild animals! *Grin*
