Rabbits And Other Stuff
You ever notice that many of us would like to pick up and cuddle a rabbit, but we'd never consider it if we saw a lizard? Lizards just don't seem very cuddly, do they? Rabbits on the other hand...
My uncle used to raise rabbits. He kept them in a giant pen out behind his house. I remember him showing me the setup he had. When we got out there I saw that the rabbits had been digging holes in the ground in there. I asked my uncle how he kept them from digging out and escaping.
Many of the rabbits were down in the holes while we were out there, so I guess I only saw part of them. Rabbits have to live somewhere, so holes are pretty good. I think my uncle finally let them all go eventually. I never really saw them too many more times, so I'm not sure what happened to them.
My uncle and my dad used to keep the strangest animals around. My dad usually stuck to farm animals, but I wouldn't have been surprised to visit my uncle one time and find out he had a kangaroo or something like that.
But sometimes I think some of them sense I'm their friend. I've had all sorts of wild animals just walk right up to me. It's funny to find out that they're just as curious as I am. If you've ever had a deer try to coax you into coming closer then you know something weird is going on.
So there you have it. My post today was slightly different. But aren't they all? I told you I talk about whatever I'm thinking at the time. I gotta say though, that post the other day about chasing a tree was a stretch. Talk to you later.
