Harvey has a home

We have a new family member. His name is Harvey. Isn't it cute? Yeah... that is because you do not feed, water and clean up after the little bugger!!! I am amazed at the amount this little guy can input... and OUTput!! He was actually J's niece's rabbit. She had two and thought this one was mean and too active for the other one. So, while we were camping she decided to 'let it free'. Well, Harvey had no idea what to do.... he and probably many, many of his ancestors had been born in captivity. So, he spent hours just hopping around all of our campsites, although he did look quite content. After awhile every time I saw him hop by, he simply looked like future road kill or a easy meal for something lurking in the woods. The kids did not have to work very hard to convince me to bring him home with us.

On our way out of the camp, some guy peeked to see what the kids were holding and told him that rabbits love banana's. I did not know this... but we are actually going to try it tonight. Hmmm, hopefully it does not make Harvey have any stomach issues...

One other story about Harvey.... Pepper made a very nice salad the other night. She diced up lots of carrots and celery and put the scrapes in a little bowl and told Dill to give it to Harvey. Does Dill take the scrapes? Nope!! He took all the nicely diced veggies! Pepper was none too happy about where all her hard work went!! Oh well, he is a cutie though! :)


  1. Haha, bunnies love prepared salads I hear. I hope you and yours are doing well. Harvey looks like a sweetie. I recommend a great pet-lover's memoir, Enslaved by Ducks by Bob Tarte

  2. Very cute, very cute. Good thing you don't live with me, you would have a house full of animals. I can be very convincing! Except I guess in my husband's case, but if I can't convince I can always wear down! We once had a bunny when Noah was young, we managed to litter train it. It was still stinky, and had a large output, but at least it was all in one place! :) Best of luck to you and your new furry friend!! :)
