Trashing the Place: Bunny Boredom

This is the mess that greeted me this morning when I went to investigate the odd banging sounds coming from the kitchen:

Rabbit destrustion

Can you spot Scamp? No, me neither, that would be because he’s sitting under the work top in the veg rack practising his “Who me?” face. The onions are safe (removed after the previous invasion) but we may need new potatoes.

He was a bit miffed at having fun spoilt:


I think most naughty bunny behaviour is just bored bunny behaviour. Wild rabbits would usually be to busy eating to make trouble, so the obvious solution for Scamp’s boredom is food too. I cut him some grass and scattered it around the floor so he could ‘graze’. It kept him quiet for a little while at least.

Look what I found whilst cutting grass…

Do be careful this time of year if you’re mowing grass, as there are frogs and soon baby froglets crawling in it looking for bugs and shade. I was using scissors so this chap hoped off safe… maybe he’ll eat some of the slugs.

    What a nice fellow with gold eyes! That Scamp, his long nose looks made for trouble 🙂 My domestic bunnies seem to have developed the capacity to meditate for long periods of time…..

    my, my, what a little engineer we have here then!
    He obviously specializes in the ‘construction’ phase of engineering!
    Scamp’s grass looks delicious as does your resident frog. Sainsbury’s now stock lovely sweet smelling fresh meadow hay, though not nearly as lovely and sweet looking as the fresh grass!
    Like Diana’s flock, my two are also very good meditators.

    Oh Tamsin, that is hilarious! It looks like the scene of a teenage party or a burglary or something.

    I am going to send a link to Mike in the hope that he’ll now realise how lucky he is to be sharing his home with such a quiet well behaved bun as Humph!

    Awww, that is some impressive bunstruction! Aren’t they so cute when they’re getting into trouble though? I feel like every time I clean, the place is a disaster again within 15 minutes, and yet I can’t be angry with them. After all, they’re just doing what rabbits do! And not only can’t we bear to scold them, we actually go run and get the camera, almost rewarding them for a job well done!

    I love Scamp’s satisfied mischief face.
