One day a few weeks ago, as is my usual practice, I opened the door to leave for work. Normally, when I open the door to leave for work, the main thing I do is make sure the MiniCat isn't too close by. I had done that, and he was nowhere in sight.
The thing is, though I am looking for something that may run OUT of the house, I am not usually too aware of things that may run IN. And, on that particular morning, while I was vigilant about keeping the MiniCat IN, I was not vigilant about keeping Outdoor Whatnot OUT.
That being said, as I opened the door, I felt like I saw something shoot past me and into the house. It wasn't a cat and it wasn't a mouse or a dog.
It wasn't even... A Bunny.
It seemed small but substantial.
In fact it sort of clomped by me. Quickly. Clomp clomp clomp clomp CLOMP!
I was already running late. The MiniCat was in, and I had to go whether ther was something in the house or not.
"Hmmmmm...." I thought as I got on my bike to ride to work. "I wonder what that was? I must have imagined it, right?" I agreed with myself, and then went about my day.
The next morning, the same thing happened. I innocently opened the door and-- ZIP!! Something went right past me. I felt like I saw a blurry flash of metal and then that was it. Nothing else was in sight. I scanned the room, and, seeing no small animals or anything else besides a wide-eyed MiniCat, I left for work and forgot all about it.
On the third morning, I was ready. I creaked the door open, oh, so slowly. I looked from side to side. Seeing nothing, I exited the house and began to close the door behind me, when-- WHOOSH!! Something went by me again! This time it felt like a bag swished by my leg. It almost made me lose my balance!
And, then, last night, when I got home from work, and I went up to the Rabbit Room to feed The Girls, I saw what those whooshes and zips were all about.
I called out to the Chick. "Well," she said when she saw what was going on in the Rabbit Room, "at least you have your movie for Flip Friday.
And, that, I do.
Behold the Rabbits with their new, friends...
