So from any given time you’ll find Rosie under the cherry tree, or over by the crab apple tree, or at the moment…over there wedged between the pine by the photinia hedge (which desperately needs to be trimmed, please excuse us). It’s pretty over there, good grass and smells like a Norsca commercial would.
The other day Rob was heading outside and he said he thought he saw a rabbit over by Rosie’s cage. We laughed it off – thinking how funny that it was. We know that Guinea Pigs should have mates because they get lonely, but that would mean that I would have another Guinea Pig to look after now wouldn’t it? Then I went out to hang out some washing and I saw them.
Rabbit and Rosie.
Chatting by the hedge. Her in her cage and he/she on the other side. I WISH I had my camera with me, but alas I did not.
I’ve known that a wee rabbit lives in that hedge for some time. It’s protected. There’s a crab apple tree near by that provides endless fruit in the summer and now? Well, now he/she has Rosie. Sometimes I go out there and see Rosie waiting for rabbit. And other times they are just out there, together. Rabbit always gets scared and runs away.
Rob thinks they are plotting her escape. I think we need to go to the pet shop on the weekend and get Rosie a mate. In the meantime, I’ll make sure her cage stays close by.
