Some Bunnies Don't Realize How Easy They Have It

This beautiful girl has been hanging around our yard all summer. I thought she was behaving strangely this morning, so I went to check things out.

Turns out she was busily building a beautiful nest, right there in the middle of the front lawn, completely exposed for anyone to see. She was still putting grass in the cavity she had dug, and hadn't started lining it with fur yet.

Not such a good idea,what with the Neighborhood Lion making our yard his favorite killing zone.  I moved the grass under cover of the shrubs and perennials (although she probably won't retrieve it). Then I filled in the depression, and blocked it off with an X-pen.

I really hope she has picked a new space for her babies that has more protection. Some place  where they have at least a slim hope of avoiding the Lion, and also the Black Panther that we have recently seen in the yard. Send a little prayer, or some good vibes her way, won't you?

As for the Old Man inside, where life is a little more cushy, he leaves you with this thought for the week. Never lose touch with your food dish, even if its empty.

Weasley: now that's the life.

Mom bun: sending thoughts and prayers her way. Hope she and the babies can stay clear of the local predators.

Hee, Mr. Mick gets like that after eating. I don't blame either of them--naps are always better with a full belly. :)

oh I hope the mother bunny finds a safe place to nest and have her babies.

Weasley makes me happy! All buns should live to a ripe old age in that kind of style and comfort!

Best of luck to the mom bunny. At his age, Weasley is in touch with his inner stomach and doesn't want to have to travel a long distance should the bowl be refilled any time soon.

Poor momma. We will keep our fingers crossed for her and her babies.

Both of my buns love to spoon the food bowl!

Mamma bun must have been a little off that day. I hope she built a very safe place soon after you moved her "preliminary" nest. If you have any updates on the mom to be, please let us know.
Thank you!

Weasley is handsome and smart and has earned the right to do precisely whatever he wishes! :)
