Beekeeping, Gardening and Quilting in Eastern Wake County, North Carolina

Wednesday, May 20, 2009


My neighbors at the river have some rabbits (usually kept in cages) which they have been raising for eating (yuk). Well, this old rabbit was sitting in the grass minding his own business when Lily happened upon him. No, she didn't try to eat him but she sure was interested in trying to figure out what he was and what he was doing.

So this is the story - they got the rabbit for breeding - come to find out he was to old to cut the mustard and they tried to give him back but no such luck. Now they have this huge (and he is huge) old rabbit that's not good for anything. Poor old fellow, he has arthritis so he just hangs out in the grass trying to get thru the day in peace.
Thank goodness they put him in the pen while we were there. I'd rather somebody else have that rabbit for din-din - definitely not Lily!
