Rescue that Rabbit!

So, after three Seders (one at Drew's house, two at my mother's), I think I've heard enough about the ten plagues and the parting of the Red Sea to last awhile...

Though we did have some excitement at the last Seder.  From this guy:

Redford had been banished to the back yard because he has an unfortunate habit of helping himself to any food he might find on the kitchen table, and with all our holiday cooking, that would be a real problem...

So my sister was in the kitchen, and she heard Redford meowing at the back door.

It was dark outside, so she didn't see that Redford had something in his mouth...She didn't see the bunny until Redford was back  inside the house.

Yeah, a bunny. In the house.

Fortunately Redford obeyed the command to drop the bunny.  One of the guests scooped up the little bunny and carried him outside.  And if he has any sense at all, he hopped away, into the woods, as fast as a rabbit can run.

Redford, dear, thanks for the gift, but even if we did celebrate Easter, it's not  until Sunday, and what's more, you're supposed to hunt for the eggs the bunny left behind, not the bunny himself....

And I was having a  bit of a deja vu moment, or rather, two.  Seems Redford has done this before. And the late Miss Daisy brought home a bunny once. I was convinced my sisters were trying to turn it into a pet.  I was able to rescue that critter.

At least I don't have that concern with Duchess.

Maybe he was looking for a friend, not lunch.

Liz, you may be right. He's an only cat. When he first showed up here as a stray, we already had two cats, so he was one of three.
