Rabbits Running Free
in the middle of the road, I swerved to miss it and to my surprise, it moved. I couldn't believe my eyes - admittedly it was still a little dark - but, there they were - two lop-eared grey rabbits. I don't know how long they had been running free from the confines of the rabbit hutch, but they were having a whale of a time racing about, going under parked cars, up garden paths - but never straying very far from home turf.
I had a feeling I knew who they belonged to and banged on the front door - I was afraid for the rabbits as the morning traffic was picking up and moving a little too fast for fat little hoppities to get out of the way. There was no answer to my knocking and the rabbits had disappeared again - oh dear - what to do! Bunnies are notoriously hard to catch and these two were no exception.
Eventually I found the owners who had no idea that the hutches were empty. I thought of the distress of their children going to feed the rabbits their breakfast and finding them gone. So I helped to round them up and made my way home. Just a little bit too much excitement for that early in the morning, thank you very much.
