My Story - Not Much More to Tell

There isn't much more to tell about how I came to my human family. But I do have a few more baby pictures to show.

Rudy, Mom's first rabbit. I've already introduced Rudy. When he was little he used to live in our basement. This really wasn't so bad because our house was built on the side of a hill. That meant that our basement door opened up into the yard. That side of the basement had big windows and lots of natural light. Mom kept the computer there and the human kids had homeschool there as well.

I had free reign of the house, but Rudy had to spend part of the day and all night in a hutch.

Rudy and Baby Rascal wanting to trade places. I was very interested in Rudy's hutch. After all, it was a box. It was a really neat see-through box with toys in it, a food bowl, and a water bottle which dripped water. I wanted very badly to go inside to explore.

Oddly, Rudy wasn't the least bit interested in being in there. In fact all he wanted was to get out. And sometimes he did get out. When Mom let him. He was only allowed out when he could be supervised, because even though Mom had rabbit-proofed that part of the basement, she still worried that he might gnaw on something that was dangerous. Dangerous for either him or it.

Everytime Rudy was out I would try to go explore his hutch. Mom always said no. One day, when Mom was cleaning out the tray underneath the hutch, I got in there anyway.

Rudy and Baby Rascal, trading places.

If you look closely under the hutch you can see a white blob of fluff. That's Rudy. He used to love to crawl under the hutch and tear up the newspaper Mom put under there.

Here is a picture of Rudy and Me playing Binky Ball.

Rudy and Rascal playing Binky Ball.

The rules of Binky Ball are:
1. The human throws the ball
2. The Cat runs after the ball
3. The rabbit binkies and runs around

Sometimes Rudy would run circles around Mom. She called it his "bunny dance."

Mom cried when Rudy went to the Rainbow Bridge. This last picture is of Me next to Rudy's memorial stone.

In memory of Rudy.

Of all the rabbits Mom has had, Rudy was my favorite.

That is a cute bunny. I've never had a bunny. Mice, rats, but no bunny. You are a lucky kitty Rascal.

Wow, Rudy is one of the fluffiest buns I've ever seen! He looks enormous next to 'baby' Rascal. Or maybe you were just a really small baby kitty? Or maybe Rudy was also very small and his fur made him look heaps bigger?? Whatever the case, you are both very cute, but of course you, Rascal, are the cutest of the pair. :)

I'm sorry Rudy is not with you anymore. When you get sad, just remember that he is in a happy place, hoping around and doing bunny dances with all his bun buddies. I'm sure he misses you too. :)

Such cute little buddies you were. And you were so tiny! Rudy looks like a kind and gentle fellow and it was special you got to grow up with him.

What a marvelous story - a real "mouse clicker" - I just read the whole thing! Rascal should write for - several kitties do. Take a look and see if you think you'd like to do that! I'm at
