That's Gratitude For Ya

Last night when we went to take care of the animals, Wifey got the bright idea to clean out the rabbit pens. She wanted to put down fresh straw so the Bun-Bun's would have a nice warm and dry bedding for the upcoming night in the teens temps. Our 2 doe's live in a cage with a front entrance, so Wifey dove in head first to pull out all of the old wet bedding.
Now this took many repeats, and the rabitts were getting more agitated every time. She was almost done when one of the bunnies jumped over her arm and crawled under her armpit, ending up right in front of her face. She stopped what she was doing to talk face to face with the bunny. When all of a sudden it turned around and let fly with a spray of urine.

Dinner is at 6pm and anyone who likes rabbit stew is invited.

Actually it was only a threat. The rabbits are all ok. At least for now. But Wifey was upset to say the least. Our four bucks gave her no trouble, but at least their cage has a top lid for access.
Just another lesson, down on the farm.

Sorry no pictures. Not that the Wife would have let me post them anyway!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Bwahaha!
That is just too funny (Tell 'Wifey' that I'm not laughing AT her, but actually, with her) lol!

I love that you all calll your rabbits, "bun-buns". When we had rabbits, that's the name we always used, too.

People always think that rabbits are so gentle, sweet and shy with people, but they sure can be bold, too.
I had a rescue rabbit (from he**) that would growl at me everytime I placed my hand in her cage. She would even lunge and mock attack. She was very intimidating.
Thank goodness, she never tried to pee on me! I think I would have been even more offended. :)

Lisa: I'm glad you got a laugh out of it. I wish I could have. But I was in striking distance ;)

Oh dear. And I'm certain she was equaly happy that you posted this story, even with *no* pictures! :-)
Please tell her I've heard that rabbit urine is a good astringent, so she actually received a free-of-charge facial treatment from that kind little bunny. :-)

I cannot believe you got permission to post this either!!! (You didn't...did you?) I always get the "And I had better NOT read about this on the blog" growl in those kinds on moments! LOL

GreyWolf said...

Danni: Wifey says you are welcome to come and get a free facial anytime ;)

Personaly I don't recomend it!!!

Agnes: As a matter of fact the first thing she said afterwards was "Now there's something to put on your blog". Now I'm not sure she meant it, and she hasn't seen it yet, but.........

Oh my, that is too much. She may not be laughing now but she will later. John had an incident like this but it was with pig poo instead. I was in tears laughing, he was not as entertained as I when it happened. .

hee, hee..please tell her that I just took this as a personal invitation to come and visit you guys! :-)

Kim: Ok I can understand, we men don't have the same sense of humor when it happens to us ;)

Dorothy: Anytime
