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