The Bunny Who Adopted Us

Over Christmas break, Diva discovered a small, black wild bunny eating leaves off of a hydrangea bush outside our back door. The Bunny was very skittish - it ran every time we looked out the window. We put some food out for it, but found it very hard to get a picture without the Bunny running off. Yet, the Bunny kept coming back. It soon discovered our fully fenced front yard and decided, as long as I didn't open the front door, it was a safe and friendly place to forage. Last week the weather began to change. We've had several cold but sunny days and Frog could not wait to get back outside. To our surprise, Bunny - now named Licorice by Diva - is happy to share the yard with Frog. As long as the rest of us keep our distance, the Bunny bounces around the yard like a puppy and approaches Frog with curiosity. Here's a little video clip - It is a little hard to see, because Licorice won't let me tape from outside.





I think Frog's pet found him :0)

Love bunnies! We have 3.

Maybe licorice was formerly someone's pet and got away - he has a home now!

From another pet-bunny family (we have 2) -- that is extremely cool. A fuzzy friend for Frog!

With Barbara, I suspect that Licorice is no wild bunny but a former pet, either escaped or abandoned. If you're ever in need of pet-bunny info, the House Rabbit Society has the goods at http://www.rabbit.org/.
