Bunny's New House

Bunny got attacked

a few weeks ago. We were inside the house, when we heard a high pitched squeaking sound. It sounded like a pig, but thought, “It could be the rabbit!” We bolted outside, to find the attacker gone, but bunny quivering in the moonlight, with large tufts of fur missing. She was ok, but frightened for the rest of the night.

Since we give her the whole yard to hop around in, we thought she had enough hiding places, especially with the little makeshift “huts” that we put out there. Well, since the incident, we’ve been bringing her inside when it gets dark.

Mike was hammering away as usual in the garage. He came up to the window and said,

“Put your shoes on. Come outside.”
“What’s that?!”
“It’s a rabbit house for Momo.”

He made a rabbit house this weekend to protect her from future attackers. It’s made entirely from scrap wood. It’s funny how Mike viagra sales likes doing things like welding and mountain biking…but also likes making odd things like rabbit houses. Bunny is a lucky girl.

What did bunny think of it?


Mike lugged the entire thing into the laundry room where we keep her at night (so she doesn’t get attacked again), so she could get accustomed to it. What did she think of it at first? Well at first, she wanted to get on the roof. Then she sniffed the entire outside of the house. She didn’t go in until much later, but it was pretty cute when she squished her butt through the bunny-sized door.

    Haha I know! But yeah, it’s super difficult to carry. Bunny still isn’t used to it yet – but she’ll have to be when we take away her current “shack” (a.k.a. boards propped up again the garage)

    I am so happy to find this blog. My bunny is expecting a baby soon and I would like to prepare in advance and build a bigger rabbit hutch for the whole family. I think it would be so sweet to personally make a perfect home for the soon to be mom, my bunny.
