Princess Leia

We got a bunny!  Actually, we already have two bunnies, Obi Wan Kenobi and Asajj Ventress.  And two dead bunnies, Darth Maul and Darth Sidious.  We just let them run free.  That’s probably why they’re dead.  But they’re so fun to watch outside the window, as long as you don’t have any plans to ever catch one.

This bunny isn’t so lucky.

Reuben built it cage.  I totally cannot understand rabbit hutches.  I’m no great animal advocate, but I still can’t fathom keeping a bunny in a cupboard.  Who does that?  So Reuben scratched the traditional design and went with what he considered reasonable.

Which turned out to be far more reasonable than I thought necessary.  But that’s okay, we’ll just fill it with more bunnies.  I was thinking we should invest in a nice breeding pair and let Jael sell them on Craigslist.  Holland Lops at $40 a pop?  That’s crazy.

Besides, why do I have such a large and unattractive backyard if it’s not to fill with portable animal housing?  And it’s such a nice design.  It has a raised, open-ended box that you can point in the direction of the sun to trap warmth.  There is shade underneath with lots of grass and room to hop about.  Because bunnies do that.  And with a few strong men you can move it when things need freshened up.

Even better, I can fit all of the kids in it.  🙂

How cool is that?

Now that’s a rabbit hutch.  I forgot to mention that Reuben built it entirely out of stuff we had laying around the backyard.  When Reuben grows up he wants to be able to build an entire house and a few trucks out of the stuff he finds in his yard.  I say it runs in the family.  Don’t blame me.
