We are here to tell you all about the tail/tale of Tuesday's fun for Mom AND to thank all of you for the many ideas you gave us for rescuing the rabbit.
Mom did put some lettuce, carrots, and water in the window well for Mr. Pesky Dumb Bunny last night. Sadly he did not touch the food and we don't know if he drank any of the water. He was just really scared. We were hoping that he might get braver during the night when it was quieter and try to climb up the board. But no such luck.
So Mom borrowed this from a neighbor.
It is a net thingie for a swimming pool and it has a handle that telescopes out a LOT!!!
Here is another view of the window well. As you can see it is quite big and very deep.
After many efforts using different techniques, Mom was finally successful. The poor bunny was not too happy about all those efforts but eventually he got in the basket and didn't move. So Mom took advantage of that moment and scooped the net up and over the top of the railing. When she gently set it on the grass, Mr. Pesky Dumb Bunny just sat there - for a NANOSECOND - and then he took off like a shot. We are happy to report that Mr. Pesky Dumb Bunny has left the property and is probably all the way to the other side of the country by now.
Mom didn't have time to take any photos of the rescue, but Lightning can attest to the fact that there is bunny stink in this net.
Yep, he was in here for sure.
Ciara thinks Mom is her hero because she is really tired of listening to Lightning's jabbering about that rabbit.
Lightning is busy ascertaining that yes, indeed, this is the "eau du lapin" that he chased into that well.
But he won't promise that it won't happen again.
Mom says she is going to work on a project to cover the top of that well with some sort of screening.
Just checking to be sure he didn't come back:)

YAY!!! We finally have sun.
