Hey all,

Yup, been away for a while again, and probably will disappear once more.  But I had to share you this.  Apparently, I forgot to feed my bunnies last night.  They get pellets early in the morning and an hour before bed.  I know, forgetting was, VERY bad.  Things have been hectic and, well, it just happened.  I went in this morning to give them their morning food and the site I saw got me a little nervous.

 I have often joked about Maryann being a super intelligent bunny.  One that plotted my demise, carried a gun, etc.  Well let me lay out the scene for you.  When I feed my rabbits, I take a 'handful' of food and dump it into a mini food trough.  This has the benefit of quick feeding without having to open the cage up.  However, when I do this, a little of the food clings to my hand and often falls outside of the trough and onto the floor.  Usually when I let my bunnies out to play, they get an extra treat by hopping over there and cleaning up my mess.

 Well when I walked into the room today, there was a long piece of willow, a tongue depressor and a half chewn bath tissue roll (which is bigger than the grid of the cage) pushed through the cage and lying strewn upon the litter of food outside. I blinked, since these items were normally on the other side of the cage and they never play with them.  I leave them in there 'just in case' but now they were outside.  At first I thought it was some sort of protest but usually when they have a major fit, they upend the litter box.  Then I realized what it was.

 They were using tools!

They were using these long items in an attempt to pull the food towards the cage.  Now, granted, I feel very VERY bad that they were hungry for the night.  But now I'm very VERY scared.  My rabbits... can... use... tools.

BTW, the arrow towards Dono is suppose to say "Henchbun"

ROFLMAO

Thanks,Mark, I love your Maryanne stories.

We could just call Dono Mimi-Mary.

Now that she can use tools, she's ordered pizza with a cell phone. None for you.

Haha! They actually got the tools out pretty far!

I wonder if they also tried running them along the condo walls to make a racket. "Wake Up Bringer-of-Food!"
Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.
