MLLE RENEE IS FUNNY ABOUT BUNNIES
Let me start by noting that in all her seven-years of living with me, Renee has chased dozens of bunnies that have ventured into “her” yard and never came close to catching a single “hare” on their chinny-chin-chins or bunny tails.
Opossums she can catch and shake up until the go limp. (Though she has no idea how they get manage to get resurrected and disappear if she turns her back.
Well, at Walgreen’s after Easter clearance sale I bought her a stuffed “realistic” bunny. (After I cut it open, removed the squeaker in its bunny belly and sewed it back up. If I didn’t remove the squeaker, she’d rip the stuffed animal apart until she was able to remove it herself. Anyway, she had a great time playing with her bunny all spring.
I knew it wouldn’t last in the house, because she has a tendency to sneak her toys out of the house and into the backyard when I’m not looking. And sure enough, last week I went outside and discovered … on the back lawn.
I’m quite sure she left it there to trap any real bunny that dared to trespass through “her” backyard.
