Excitement Today: Rabbit Afoot!
Well, I heard an exciting cry from the kitchen this morning... "Vince, I need your help and I need it NOW!"
My wife is the excitable type. So I knew she wasn't dying or badly injured. But there was a lot of commotion as if the dog was going crazy in the dining room.
It was not the dog. It was a huge rabbit. HUGE.
The cat had caught it, but it was apparently not injured -- yet.
Now I was not the one to call. Let's face it. I'm 70. I'm 310 lbs. No way.
I called my son. He quieted everybody. I suggested a towel to avoid bites. My wife suggested a box. Both helped.
In about 10 minutes, he got it out of the corner and into the box. It was so scared, it didn't try to jump and wiggle out.
My son took it out back, and that bunny hopped as happily as Uncle Wiggily, escaping to his hollow-stump bungalow.
