Yerbie and the Rabbit. by tucsonmike on 27 January 2009 2:40am
 
I came home to see a wide eyed thoroughly outraged pussycat. Elaine had to explain.
We have had a couple of huge rabbits in the yard on and off the last week. They are owned, they are definitely clean and fat!
One of them was eating the grass in Yerbie's yard. The rabbits look at us and do not care. Yerbie was trying to get through the glass, he was that angry. Straws did not distract him.
I considered taking him out on his leash, next time they are out there.

I almost ran over a bunny this morning it ran straight out in front of the car I don't know quite how I missed it, but I did:)

Aww bless, Mike, and ooooo Kazzzz!!

Quite a while ago (omigod, nearly 22 years to be precise !!) I was in hospital over Easter, having a major op. The husband drove our kids (then about 14 and 11) to see their Nanna on Easter Sunday morning and nearly run over a rabbit that just jumped out! When they came in to see me later that day he said he had nearly run over the Easter Bunny!!

(And yes, I had my Easter eggs in hospital - in fact he even brought me in a hot cross bun on Good Friday, bless him!!)

:)

I don't know what it is about animals running out in front of cars. Do they have death wishes? Luckily, I've only hit a few animals in my life, and never any wild ones, and they appeared to be all but dead on impact. But I see dead bunnies all over the place in the Spring, and squirrels all year round. Lots of deer in the Spring and summer, too.

Ditto, Judy.

They run out all the time crossing the road to get to their nests or food on the other side of the road. It always breaks my hear to see them , because it only makes me know something suffered, if only for a few seconds. And , many last a while before their last breathes. Those are the real tragedies.

When I was in Yorkshire my cousin and I were driving thru a forest and a deer leapt out of the trees and literally cleared the whole width of the road over the car bonnet (were were in a bit of a cutting) it was just amazing. It looked like it was flying. Hmmmm come to think of it I think it had a red nose!

People do claim deer appear to fly. So you can now say you witnessed that phenomenon too, Kaz!

I am thinking twice bout taking him out on the leash to the rabbit. I dreamed about it last night. I did it, the rabbit was scared ran into the street, was run over by a car, I was confronted on my property, Elaine called the cops, who separated us, and they next thing I knew, I was being sued.

I woke up with a start to find...Yerbie rubbing up against me. He wanted his breakfast.
