Fluffy Bunny News

Tony Ovenden has news of a lost Rabbit.

He writes:

"I have a lost pet domestic rabbit found in the Nottingham Castle beer garden. There is a second one also on the loose. Do you know of anyone who has lost one. - or even two. "

Ed: To lose one Rabbit is careless but to lose two is an extravagence. I will ask!

Free meals on legs, is the way I regard these rodents. Lucky they were found by Mr Ovenden!

Well, that is a bit heartless ! Your opinion is not shared by the many children who adore their pets and certainly not by the general public. I hope this rabbit is re-united with its owner soon. No doubt the writer of the above comment would pull wings off butterflies too !

Eating rabbits is perfectly acceptable for a country-dweller like myself and I do resent 6.07, that such a viewpoint should be linked by you to mindless cruelty to insects. Next time you use fly-killer, watch the writhing agony of those poor creatures you have just sprayed.

Rabbit update, we have notified the RSPCA that we have got him. So in the meantime my wife and I at the weekend bought the rabbbit some hay and various selection of rabbit food. We were a bit suprised to find out that rabbit food contains dried Bananna, which I suppose beats buying catfood with runner beans in, by a mile. We have given him a name which is norman and we let him in the house, Norman doesn't like Eastenders, so I do have something in commom with him.
His mate on the other hand is a right little sod and prooving to be difficult to catch and has certainly got the human race sussed out. His favourite haunt is the Nottingham Castle beer garden and I sure he puts in an appearance to wind people up.
Keep you posted

6.41,
I do not use fly spray, or any other insecticide....and rabbits are not rodents. If you take exception at my comment then that is just tough, maybe, just maybe the person who lost their rabbit will come on to this site and read your comment. It is incredible that you have the nerve to complain about my comment when you happily admit would have eaten the rabbit, a pet that is lost !
Get off your high horse.

Bob, I doubt if he will hop it. This one knows which side his bread is buttered. He just keeps on eating. My wife has sacrificed her salad for the cause, mind you she doesn't know it yet.

5.17, I am pleased that Tony Beachcomber is looking after the rodent (yes, rabbits are rodents) and hope that eventually it will be re-united with its owner. I am also glad that you do not use fly-spray and hope you have the same care for animal life when you find house-mice in your house and rats in your dustbin area and drains. I am not on a high -horse, I am happy to eat horses as well, I just resent your implication that I am gratuitously cruel to animals/insects in your first post.

7:31 pm , my lodger may be a rodent to you but he is still our "Norman", well temporary that is until we find his owner.
We still love him all the same.

Good news,Norman was collected this morning by the RSPCA and they are hoping he will be reunited with his owner soon.
