The morning started off as per usual. I made noise to bring the human downstairs and down she came. I accepted my greens and retreated to my loungeroom hiding spot. I was hiding because I knew something was up… the humans had been talking about me all week and yesterday a whole bunch of things appeared in the house.
A few hours later they put the harness on me. The harness is never a good sign. In retrospect I should have bolted right there and then. The harness always mean they are taking me outside. I hate it outside.
To make things worse, they then put me in the loud moving box, I have told you about it before. Going in the moving box always means something bad is going to happen.
After what seemed like an eternity they took me into a place I had never been. There were loud dogs barking at me and I was absolutely terrified. They offered me treats, but I wasn’t giving in that easy… I was cranky.
She tried to encourage me out of my box, but I wouldn’t come to her, so she pulled me out by grabbing my front legs and my bottom. Although I don’t like my bottom being touched it makes me feel much safer when they pick me up by supporting me there. After a quick cuddle she put me in a big pen with a crate in it. You won’t guess what they did next!
They put another bunny in the pen with me! I was furious! How dare they do that to me. I tried to ignore her but my mind started going crazy. I wanted to mount the white bunny. She needed to know who was boss.
Now, I am a gentlebun… so I won’t go into the details but what I will say is that for a very long time they stood and watched whilst we took turns showing each other who was the boss rabbit.
After a while I got sick of all the drama. I hopped into the milk crate and periodically thumped my back feet to show everyone I was unimpressed. The white bunny just wouldn’t stop harassing me! She was licking me and kept putting her head under my chest so that I would lick her. Fat chance! Or so I thought.
After a while I gave in and gave her two tiny licks on the ear. That was all she was going to get from me. Hopefully soon it would all be over.
Finally, after a very long time they grabbed me out of the pen. They put me back in the box and so I knew we were leaving that place at last. Then they put her in there with me! I was so confused. And so was she. Neither of us were expecting that to happen.
After a long journey home they put the white rabbit in a pen which they assembled the night before. I guess they decided she couldn’t be trusted… not like me… I go where ever I please.
Thats when the worst part happened. They put me in the pen too. And now they are completely ignoring me whilst i’m STUCK in here with this stranger! They havent given me any strawberries ALL DAY. I don’t like this situation. However, she is very pretty.
