Bunny Hugger

Most of you don't know my husband from anyone, but a bunny hugger he is not. He can hunt deer with the best of 'em. He must be getting soft in his old age. He runs in the morning and made a furry discovery on his travels today. I took the kids to school this morning and went grocery shopping. I arrived home to find this on top of my REFRIGERATOR!



Can I just tell you how disturbing this is on so many levels? Notice the purple bin that was formerly used for toys and now has the carcass of a bunny. On top of the refrigerator. Where I am going to unload our food. That we eat. Anyone coming for dinner tonight?

***Update on the bunny for the inquiring minds. The bunny has perished. My husband, in his best efforts, tried to rescue Thumper (that's what we'll call him). He fed it water through a syringe in an attempt to hydrate the little guy, but to no avail. He now rests in peace in our backyard. Thank you for your concern and no, my husband did not just put a dead bunny on top of our refrigerator. He thought it may have a chance to survive. He was well intentioned.

That is just wrong on so many levels. Maybe he is hoping you'll make some rabbit stew for supper? I hear that's the cure for the stomach flu in some countries (not really).

So, what'd you do with it?

Are you kidding? What does he want you to do with it, nurse it back to health...or life?
That is not a fun thing to come home to.
Good luck with the figuring out this new softer side of your husband.

For some reason this has me just ROLLING in laughter. I think it's the last line "Just thought you would like to know"

Um... YEAH

Don't know if I would want to look in there. You are welcome to change it to butt! Sorry!

Midwest Mommy said...

Wait, what? Are you kidding? There is really a bunny in there possibly dying a slow death???

Sonya said...

Holy Crap! If this bunny is still alive....no better yet...if you bring that bunny back to life by looking in there YOU ARE MAGIC!!! :)

What in the world was he thinking? You are going to have to update us on why he put it in the house dead or half dead. :)

Oh my goodness. That is just wrong. Unbelivable. Poor bunny :(

Adelaine said...

Ok, so did that bin have a lid on it? Because if it did.....well poor bunny. Poor bunny anyways. And if it didn't, I'd be afraid the bunny would get the vigor to jump right on down out of there and kill itself in the process!!! The bunny was gonna die either way it went....

He's a good guy for trying!!

Oooooh! I knew right away he was trying to save the little guy!!!
Bless his heart that he made such a valiant attempt!

I once tried to save a VERY squashed bunny from a country road outside of the little rural town I where I went to college. I'll never forget calling my mom, sobbing, asking her how I could save him...when really, there were lots of things everywhere telling me that I had to let him go into the light. Seriously gross stuff that you don't want me to type. But I'm a bleeding heart like that.

I bet they are in bunny paradise together even now.

Just spray it with some HARE spray and it will be fine....just watch out for the lasting wave....
