A new resident

Post  Laikipia on Tue May 21, 2013 1:31 pm

For the past few days we've had a new resident, much to the alarm of Tamu, who I am teaching not to chase small furry things that look cute. I got pretty close before he moved off under my car again.

The thing is he can get out of the garden easily, either under the gate or through the fence - obviously likes living under my car in the car port!

I love you I love you Awwwwww he is a real beauty Lai, such a cute little bunny I love you I love you Tamu must definitely leave him alone, she must learn he is for admiring and not chasing No he must feel safe under your car but as you say he can get out of the garden as well so I suppose he has the choice about hiding out under the car or bouncing about in the fields. I hope he stays around and safe for quite a while. Just love him I love you

It's a young one WS, not sure what happened though when Pete went to get into his car this morning the bunny leapt onto his wheel arch and then disappeared, hopefully not into the engine What a Face Pete couldn't find it scratch and I haven't seen it since ............ Shocked I will keep an eye out.

He really does look like a youngster, I wonder if he has got a little confused or lost. I really hope he didnt end up in the engine What a Face lets hope he hopped off safely, maybe Pete getting in the car and starting the engine frightened him off. Do let us know if you see him again and I am pleased Tamu was a good girl and left him alone, even though she was tempted affraid

Will do, no sign as yet, but hopefully that's a good thing and he is now out and about in the woods Very Happy rather than by the cars.

I too hope the sound of Pete starting up the car made the bunny run off.

News on our bunny. He's now in Pete's car park at work What a Face What an awful journey he must have had somewhere under the bonnet, but he is safe and appears okay, there are fields and a river at the back so he'll be quite okay once he gets settled.

That's one lucky little bunny!

That distance is one short hop for Mankind to work, but one huge leap for Bunnykind Glad he's OK, but it must have been a bit frightening affraid hopefully he'll soon settle in to his new surroundings. Unless he fancies a lift back No

I agree WS Laughing I was tempted to suggest to Pete that he caught the little bunny and brought him home Very Happy but didn't think that was such a good idea.

It seems he is alive and well so I am thrilled and relieved.

Oh My Goodness, you hear of cats surviving car journeys in the bonnet of car but a little bunny affraid thank heavens he is ok, but he must be one tough little fellow to survive and still be ok. I suppose, it's also a relief that he made it all the way to Petes work and didn't drop out on the road, someone is really watching over that little bunny for sure.
Lets hope he stays safe and well in his new surroundings and you are stronger than me Lai, I would have tried to capture him and bring him home but that could have put a wild bunny under more stress and as he is settled you really made the right decision to leave him in his new home.

WS your wise cracks get worse

You the man WS Laughing

I do agree Littlewid, but I think that little bunny has had enough of a shock and probably safer away from Tamu who is trying to be saintly but may lapse .... Rolling Eyes

I will spill the beans although this is a bit premature ..... as you know there are thousands of greyhounds who need homes Sad our beautiful Penny came from a greyhound rescue in Lincoln but each part of the UK has many centres. We've be looking in our area and Cheshire has a centre near Nantwich where they have about 60 greyhounds. We are hoping to visit one afternoon this week with a view to homing at least one poor old greyhound. I say old because they always get overlooked and need love and forever homes. We have one in mind who keeps being overlooked (accordingly to the website) so I feel sure she will be with us soon.

We have a busy June with being away for a long weekend mid June and then in Shetland for a week at the end of June/July so would only consider taking her after this, otherwise it would be very unfair to put a newly rehomed dog into kennels straight away.

Also Tamu must meet her before any decision can be made ........ and I am missing Penny enormously and don't want to rush into this too quickly.

So I am very keen and excited and hope to have good news soon cheers

Thanks GR - we both feel it is a good thing to do and I am missing my little Penny so much, I am sure she would approve Very Happy

Today's rescue is a racing pigeon who is on the lawn, he has 2 ring tags and must be lost or blown off course, so he's now enjoying some wild bird food and suet shreds and is happily wandering round wondering if he can come inside. With any luck after a couple of hours he'll be on his way and fly home.

So several hours later Percy pigeon is still here and it's raining. He's had food and water and is now looking pitiful outside - oh yes he did come inside and p Censored so I sent him outside again. He didnt like my upturned chair shelter, but he did try our African breeze hut briefly.

It's raining out here, could I please come in?


Okay I shall just walk away if you won't let me


You know it does look nice and cosy and dry in there


Are you listening to me? I am cold and wet out here!


I am really hoping Percy takes shelter, wakes up refreshed in the morning and flies home - otherwise he'll be coming inside for breakfast, he's remarkably keen to come inside What a Face .

Ooooh there is a lot of different things going on on this thread - all good may I point out Wink

That is one lucky bunny Lai, thank goodness it made it to Pete's work safely. Hopefully once it's settled it will make its way to the fields. How old are bunny's usually when they leave mum/the warren ?

What wonderful news Lai that you are going to get a friend for Tamu, you both love your dogs and I'm pleased you have moved quickly to get another one. What really touched me is your choice of dog, I think it's wonderful that you are looking to rehome a greyhound who has been 'overlooked', you and Pete are lovely, lovely people to do that I love you Hugs Totally agree with not taking one until all your trips are over, that is very wise and very thoughtful. Looking forward to hearing in due course who you pick

Great shots of Percy, he certainly did look rather pitiful in the Rain bless.

scratch I'm not really sure about bunnies Doogs, he was really not afraid of us or Tamu so I hope he will be okay.

Pete's just told me we're going tomorrow afternoon to meet our rescue greyhound Very Happy I already think we may have to give her another name, she is called Princess and I don't feel that will do her justice - so would like to consider Kasi which is Swahili for fast/speedy (seems appropriate). I have a feeling we may get 2 (my idea not Pete's).

Percy, bless him, is still at home. He spent the night either in our African hut or in a tree and this morning he was outside the window along with Fizal and Mrs Pheasant, 3 ducks, 1 P'fer (is the other sitting on eggs? I hope so) and they were all waiting for breakfast!

It's a madhouse here at the moment

Great news about the Greyhound ( s ) dont worry we wont let on to Pete lol! . Wise to wait untill you come back from you time away, it also just gives you that little bit of extra time to think about it, although I think you've already made your mind up Very Happy
There was a racing Pigeon on the Caravan Park where we Mrs S works the other week, it was there for a few days, and people were feeding it. In the end they rang the Local Vets, and they told them if they could catch it, and put it in a box they would sort it out. Which they did, but we have'nt had an update yet. Sadly a lot of owners of racing Pigeons do'nt want them back once they have gone off track, and ask people to get rid of them What a Face
