what the cat dragged in…



Found this cute baby bun trying to burrow into the bottom stair in the hallway this morning, having been brought in by cat Leo from the fields not too far away.

Fortunately he seemed completely unharmed, once he had recovered from the shock and was released back to the thick and wild hedgerow from whence he probably came.

There has been too much blood shed by the kittens but on this occasion, Leo’s handling technique was merciful.

    He looks a cute little thing Jan. There must be an abundance of baby bunnies this year, we have hundreds running about. I bet this one got a shock being grabbed by a cat, I guess you got a bit of a shock too 🙂

    Val he was so ultra-cute i wanted to keep him but Capt Sensible pointed out he wouldn’t last long. How did Beatrix Potter manage, I wonder – with Peter Rabbit and Tom Kitten…. 🙂

    One of my aunts had a baby wild rabbit, I think the correct name is kit.
    Her husband had shot the mother.
    They called it Robert, and kept it until it had grown, then it hopped away and started it’s new life in the wild.
    (Cue violins and soft lighting.)

      Thanks! 🙂 I had a rabbit called Bobby, short for Robert. I thought that after the violins and soft lighting bit, you were going to end with a line about the husband going out and shooting it… !!

    So sweet. I hope it found its mum.
    So your cats are still slaughtering the local wildlife. I’m hoping Not Cat sticks to flies.

    Ahem. Yes. Lily stays in overnight and seems to be the innocent one. It seems Leo is the hunter. It was certainly him that brought back the bunny from some distance away.

    I have those anti-bird catching bibs now but haven’t fitted them yet. They look a bit ridiculous and even Capt Sensible feels it’s a cruel thing to impede a cat’s natural movement. Although we both loathe the carnage. We’ll see how it goes.
