Yesterday evening, Auntie Sadie decided that she was going to do something about it, and went hunting. Mom noticed she wasn’t around, but she was busy catching up on emails, and I kept on distracting her if she looked up.
Auntie was lucky and caught a half grown rabbit. She brought it in (very quietly…) and took it into Mom and Dad’s bedroom to clean out the innards and then eat her fill. Finally, she let me have some. Boy was I a happy camper! I brought out the head and part of the skin and laid down beside Mom’s foot to eat.
I figured that she might get the hint if she saw that we were doing OUR part in getting food for ourselves. She was so busy that she didn’t notice for awhile. Then, Dad decided he was going to get up from his chair and go to bed, so he had her look around to make sure none of us were under the foot part of his recliner... and that’s when she noticed me chewing on the bunny’s head an inch or so from her foot.
Good grief! She’s seen dead rabbit parts before… maybe not in the living room… inches from her foot… SUDDENLY… Did you know that Mom’s can ROAR!!! I HAVE big ears! I USED TO hear perfectly well! I did the wise thing and levitated to the other end of the room and THEN peeked back around the corner.
She calmed down a bit and told me to stay there, then mumbled something about getting the camera because no one would believe it. I just wanted to get my rabbit head and go outside, but she had Dad keep watch until she took (or tried to take) pictures using that new camera that is supposed to have a light... but she couldn’t get it to work. She finally found a flashlight and tried that way. She told me to take it outside, but after her first reaction, I didn't think I should go near it.
THEN, she grabbed it and threw it outside! MY RABBIT HEAD!!! AND I’M STARVING!!! Needless to say, after all of that, Dad wasn’t to happy with Auntie Sadie for cleaning the innards out of her meal on the floor beside his bed, which he found when he finally got in there. (No pics cause Mom said you wouldn't appreciate them...)
Dad’s can ROAR too! Sadie disappeared… Mom had to go get a ziplock bag and pick up the pieces, etc. Neither of them are very happy with me and Auntie today… Dott had already gone to bed and Mama made herself pretty scarce too when the “grisly discovery” as Mom calls it, was made. Sadie wasn't happy to find out that she is ineligible for the hunting award because she's part of the family, too.
