Happy Ending?

I think the bunnies look very happy in their new home, don't you? I'm sure Spike and Hedwig are thrilled to be in their new, cozy 2-room suite instead of running free in the backyard where they could do things like tunnel under the house and remove insulation from under our master bedroom. Yes, I think they look very, very happy.

It was actually not very hard to catch the bunnies... the, uh, first time. But apparently there is a learning curve when it comes to latching the cage closed correctly. Color me surprised an hour later when I saw a white bunny hopping around the backyard and the cage door hanging down. Of course this time Hedwig was on to us and knew exactly why I was walking toward her. Marshall wasn't home at the time so Haven and I (and the broom that I was holding) did our best to corner her. Twenty-five minutes later Haven and I walked in the house, defeated.

I decided to wait until Marshall was home and we would try again after dinner. I decided to drink two beers with dinner because it probably couldn't hurt my bunny-catching skills and it might just help.

After dinner Marshall said, "Let's do this. Let's just catch her." Oh right... because last time I was just running around chasing her for the sole purpose of getting some exercise. But in less than 10 minutes, we cornered her and I caught her.

And I think I owe it all to the beer.

  2. Well, yeah, I think I read that in the Catching Bunnies handbook: Drink two beers before attempting to corner your bunny. Yep, I'm pretty sure it says that.

  4. I can just see you running around in the backyard, tipsy and determined. Funny stuff. I think they would feel better if you painted the house purple. Duh.

  13. Okay, I love this...I am following an adorable, slightly dark plot line. Now that they are captured, courtesy of two beers...what's next??

  14. Oh, thank goodness!

    Though... the bunny under the house post was so funny, I made Hubby listen while I read it to him. It reminded him of the demon, um, dog they had as a kid.

    It tried to get under their kitchen.

    Through the floor.

    Actually damaged the subflooring in the process.

  17. OMg.. bad... bad... bunnies! Lol! too funny! They are probably so pissed at you for putting them in that cage.. lol!

  18. Of COURSE it was the beer!

    But.

    Didn't you have four bunnies (and then three)? Where did the third one go?

    On the plus side -- you now know that whenever you need exercise, you don't need to head to the gym. Just let the bunnies out! Much cheaper that way, right?

  20. Better a broom than a shovel ;o)

    Oh, and I'm loving Gina's suggestion of giving the beer to the rabbits. Pure comedy in my head.
