Oh, The Indignity

Today dad picked me up and carried me to mummy, who was smiling in a way I didn’t like.

Turns out, I had good reason to be suspicious of her motives – just look!

Turns out she’d bought some little costumes at the store.

I don’t like this.

betsy does not like this

I will make you suffer for this indignity.

gus joins the party

Eventually dad brought Gus into the party. Misery loves company, after all.

gus the king

Gus didn’t understand it any more than I did.

gus does not like his crown

I don’t think the crown fit him very well, either.

buns not happy being in costume

Bunnies should not be dressed up!

This is just silly mummy, take it off!

roles reversed

No, wait, that’s not what I meant!!

I wonder if it’d be OK if I took a flying leap off this table…

betsy looks good in a crown

I don’t need no stinkin’ crown to know I’m the boss around here!

gus does not like the implications of this costume

Gus did not like the implications made by this costume.

the buns in costume from above

This is just not right.

After that, mum took the clothes off of us and dad helped her put us back down on the ground. Fortunately, the whole ordeal didn’t take more than a few minutes… but it was still degrading in a way that bunnies should not be subjected to.

I’ll have to think of something particularly valuable to chew on tonight to make up for this injustice.

  1. Oooh I have a suggestion! That table looks like some nice, chewably crunchy wood! You should chew on it for revenge!!!

  2. Bwaha ha, so cute! Personally, I’ve been wanting to make a little blue felt jacket — my bunny is very wild type, it wouldn’t take much to dress him up like Peter Rabbit! (I already say he is dressed up like Peter, after he lost his jacket on the fence, lol).

  3. Lovely pics! Accidentally, Miss Eve and Neville let slip that if I ever tried something similar with them, they would shred all the carpets in the house. All of them. Sigh!
