Rabbits are cute and cuddly but dumb, right? Check this story out.

Last night we let Little Half-Pint out for a stroll around the house. Now, because Half-Pint is absolutely despised by the other rabbits in the house – something well documented in this post – we have to be careful that the other rabbits are secure in their pens. We let Half-Pint out, and she immediately (like all the other rabbits would) headed to a litter box in the corner of the room right in front of Cosmo’s pen. This particular litter box serves as the “public restroom” for the rabbits, as they all love to take their turn putting their scent down on top of whatever scent might be there. (Don’t worry, we start fresh every week!)

After hitting the litter box, Half-Pint was dancing and skipping around the room, no doubt attempting to impress Cosmo at the fact that she was free to roam around what is typically his domain. Every now and then, she’d dart back and forth in front of his pen trying to get his attention, but Cosmo wouldn’t take the bait – he just lay there in his corner on his side, half asleep, one eye closed, the other partly open, seemingly unconcerned at the commotion on the other side of the bars.

After awhile, Half-Pint got bored at this game and began to tucker out. Seeing Cosmo vegged out in his corner on the far side of his pen, she decided to lay against the side his pen – a fairly brazen act in my view, considering that the pen’s fencing has openings just wide enough for Cosmo to stick is long snout through. Half-Pint didn’t seem concerned, however – the Great White Rabbit was down for the count a safe distance away, and while she was on alert at the start, she soon she got comfortable and stretched out even more against Cosmo’s pen.

Now I’ve always thought Cosmo was a bit of dull bulb (if you know what I mean), but we soon found out he’s no dummy – in this case, he was just playing dumb. Obviously far more attentive to what was going on than he was letting on to, he waited until Half-Pint stretched her little body out just a little bit more into bunny relaxation position (both paws out in front, both legs straight out in back) and then struck quickly and efficiently. In seconds, Cosmo was up and lunging towards the object of hate lying just outside his pen. Half-Pint must have caught the sudden movement out of the corner of her eye but reacted too slowly, for the white snout was through the cage opening and onto her before she could get safely away.

A crash against metal. A wail of pain.

Half-Pint quickly retreated to the safety of the public litter box. And Cosmo just sat there, red eyes ablaze, a huge hunk of black fur his trophy laying on the floor beneath the snout that had now retreated, its job done, its message dutifully sent.

Who said rabbits were cute, cuddly, and dumb?

  1. Cosmo needs to go into therapy immediately for his anger control issues. Half-Pint needs to go into therapy immediately for the BTSD (Bunny Traumatic Stress Disorder). Cosmo needs to be reported to the BPS (Bunny Protective Services). Raging Rabbits are a danger to others in ways we have yet to imagine. I think I can work with both, so you and Tracey need to get them both here ASAP.
    Hey, I will do anything to get y’all to come see me.
