They are predators, after all…
I heard MrsDoF screaming and got up from my chair to investigate. Then I stopped, put down my reading glasses and put on my regular specs. No telling what I might need to see up there.
It was a baby bunny, looking for a place of refuge in our kitchen while two cats competed for the honor of recapturing it. Oscar had brought it in and Holly wanted some of the action.
The terrified animal ran into a pile of junk in the breakfast nook while Diane collected the cats. She tossed them into the bathroom and shut the door.
Easiest bunny-capture I’ve ever done: the little creature ran directly into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag that contained a coiled-up 50-foot Ethernet cable. I just picked up the bag, carried the little bunny outside and let it go.
The cats will be staying in tonight, but I doubt the little bunny will survive. I don’t know where the nest was. What are the chances for a lost, possibly injured baby bunny on a cold, rainy night?
Baby humans have disproportionately large eyes, so we think they’re cute. Adult cats have large eyes too, but then so do most nocturnal predators.
