Bunny tale

Pssst! Hey, get me outta here!

bunny, originally uploaded by luvarugula.
Today the bunny is gone, off to live in a private home. She came to us quietly, probably tossed over the fence and abandoned to fend for herself in the community gardens. Probably nirvana for awhile, as we have a lot of weedy plots with places to hide. We don't know how long she was on her own.

Thanks to some of our community minded gardeners, she was caught, placed in very nice enclosure donated by a local business, and fed well with fresh carrots from the gardens and rabbit chow. Her nickname, Little Shirley, was in honor of the gardener where her cage was kept. We know she enjoyed being let out of her cage to jump around and create burrows because she became quite skilled at running away, as in "Noooooo, I'm not going in that cage!".

I used to see the bunny in the mornings, sitting in her box. By the time I left, she would be completely out of her box. I would catch her peering at me intently, surely wanting to be let out.


  1. This bunny is adorable! It's odd how some people think the way to get rid of an animal is to release it in the countryside (or in a garden). I've never understood the logic. But then you hear success stories of dogs, cats, and now bunnies who are rescued by kind strangers. I'd say it must work except that there is no way to know how many of these animals don't find kind strangers.

    I wanted to ask if you'd be willing to submit your "Cilantro on my mind" post to the new blog carnival I'm hosting. I think it is a nice herb profile and I'd love to include it. Here's the link to the carnival:

  2. Hi Eliza: Thanks for coming by. I did sign up. You've got a fantastic blog, btw, which I added to my blogroll.
