Desktop Madness Vol. 88

The 88th installment of Desktop Madness features a bunch of cute bunnies helping out in the kitchen!

I have no idea where I found this, and I have no idea what it comes from (if it even does come from any sort of larger work or series at all), but it is cute and it features bunnies, so you know I had to post it.

Enjoy!

The Trial against the Bad Bunnies

The buns got into some mischief last night – in a big, bad way.

We’d just gotten our new guest bedroom set up – all sorts of nice things (gotta love IKEA), and of course plastic under-bed storage containers to keep the buns out from under the bed (in the most guest-friendly way).

Unfortunately, the very first night, the buns found a way past all the barriers and got under the bed. And while there – well, let’s just say they did some bad things. So now they are in “bunny prison.”

Suffice to say I was NOT happy this morning when woken up to this news. So now the buns are on trial, and the outcome of that trial will determine what happens to them. Will they get their free-roaming privileges revoked? Will they be confined to a cage? Or maybe just kept behind a barrier in a corner of the room? Or will we just improve the bunny-proofing around the guest bedroom?

Let’s see some of the evidence.

Exhibit A

Exhibit A: Rabbit Fur

As you can clearly see, this is white rabbit fur. It probably came from Gus, but both of them have white fur.

Exhibit B
Exhibit B: The Hole

While under the bed they chewed this hole in a wicker basket kept beside the bed (originally to keep them from getting past the small space at the head of the bed).

Exhibit C: Testimony

Amanda woke me up at 7am this morning (my day off!) and told me they’d gotten under the bed. I came out to find Gus sitting happily under the guest bed. While I was trying to shoo him out, Besty came under the bed from the opposite side, near the head of the bed – presumably this is the way they got in, because I saw no other breaks in the defenses.

Deliberation

I’ll be deliberating on the fate of the buns today. We’ll see how I feel tonight – and how the buns feel after a day of being kept in one corner of the room!

BAD BUNNIES!

Betsy the Explorer

We occasionally let the bunnies into the bedroom to romp around and play, and the other day I caught the two of them climbing a pile of clothes & spare pillows in the corner. They had made a sort of tunnel under the pillows, and were having lots of fun climbing all over things.

What is it with bunnies climbing piles of clothes?

Betsy Bunny

Betsy is very much the “naughty” bunny of the pair. One might almost say that she’s somewhat… um… unsophisticated.

For example, that is not the proper way for a bunny to eat her hay.

She can also sometimes be found with some or all of her paws in her regular food bowl.

We had hoped that Gus would teach her “manners,” but it seems unlikely at this point. I guess she’ll never learn.

Snuggling Bunnies

These two bunnies sure have bonded well. We almost always find them snuggling together when they’re resting.
