That is the Way of the Bunneh. Do not question. Only serve their wanton and unfathomable needs.

It may be OLD but Cinnamon knows it is HERS... why would you try to take it? Silly bun.

TechNeilogy said...

That is so funny. My rabbit, Mr. Bun-bun, is exactly the opposite; he loves to chase the broom. He bites straws off of it, and loves to re-scatter the piles of hay.

Fleetie said...

Exactly: It's is CINNAMON'S hay and SHE gets to decide when it goes. She disapproves in the strongest terms of some *stoopid* *hoomin* trying to take it away from her!

It is Queen Cinnamon's royal hay! And that broom had better watch out; if it tries stealing her hay again, Cinny will DISAPPROVE of it until it takes fright and flies right away!

BTW, has Cinnamon just celebrated her 10th birthday at the start of this year?

Renee said...

awwe! My girls disapprove of any attempts to take their stuff...litter pans, old shreds of paper, etc...
However once the cage is clean and the litter pans filled with new hay, they are happy and love it.

I think that rabbits just don't like change.

Hee hee, must be a bun thing. My bun DeeDee eats the yummy best parts of her hay, then when I go to clean up, she's suddenly interested in the rest of it and doesn't want me messing with it. She's not taking that crap, she attacks the Oreck with bunny slaps! Very brave little bun is DeeDee.

LOL...What's old is new again!!!!

Corbie said...

"I strongly disapprove of your use of the phrase, 'old hay'. It's not old, I was merely letting it breathe to fully develop the bouquet! Have you learned nothing from me?!??"

One of my rabbits LOVES the broom. He would literally seek it out to bite off the bristles, even 10 feet of linoleum did not stop him.

Gaina said...

'Yes, but...but...it's my week-old hay!' Haha

I wonder if she thinks the broom is actually a rabbit with one really long ear? That would even freak me out! ;D

Boopalina luv said...

just because its old doesnt mean she didnt plan on eating it at some point, maybe she was saving it for company. lol

Dawn said...

Coco and Cinnamon share a common enemy.

She also despises "THE BROOM".

Lalis said...

HAHAHA!! That's my bun's thing too: ignore the hay, but when I decide it's old and begin to pile it up suddenly he wants to eat it! Sometimes I've been tempted to recycle it, haha!

Selina said...

My bunny Phoebe used to hate the broom so much that she would bit it viciously - I often ended up attempting to sweep the floor with a very grumpy bunny still attached to the broom!

Maegen said...

You just made my day!! One of my bunny boys goes through the same exact thing every time I try to sweep up his weekly pile! It's his and he fights the broom each week!

janet2buns said...

It is the PRINCIPLE of the thing. If Cinnamon lets hoomins mess with her hay, who knows what it will lead to!!! The stoopid hoomins will then take all kinds of liberties with Cinny's royal belongings!! They must remember to keep their grimy mitts OFF what doesn't belong to them!!

Allison Henry said...

What's up with the cord? Can't believe Cinnamon hasn't snipped that with her teeths.

Is that a fan? My buns have sent several fans to an untimely death.

Sarah said...

Bear hates the Broom too! It is her mortal enemy. They do battle frequently.

Kathleen said...

I had a rabbit named Jackson who was a gleaner. He didn't want anything to go to waste so he had to go through the sweep pile very carefully, even when there was new hay just put in the litterbox.
One definition of glean is to pick through the field after it is already harvested so I thought it was a perfect term for this behavior.

Mom used to wonder what wuz happenin' to the broom -- it "shrank" so fast.

Until she discovered Jellybean was going to the corner an' havin' a good chew on it when it wuz parked...

We rabbits get even, dontcha know?

Paige said...

Well, yeah! That disregarded hay is HERS to disregard or to regard. Sheesh! :)
