Ever mentioned that I have a rabbit?
She is crazy and mean. She thumps her back foot on the bottom of her cage and scares the dogs. It makes a really loud noise, and I can not find any particular reason for her to do it, other than she enjoys it. Most rabbits make the thumping sound as a warning to other rabbits. I have never been sure why she does.
The real thing is that she does it at all times of the day or night. When it happens, my three 50+ pound dogs, run for the hills. I usually find them trembling in a corner and you can't pay them to come out. Sort of funny, but not really. On a day like today, not funny. It started at 4:00 am. The first thing that woke me, the thumping. The second thing that prevented me from going back to sleep, the pit-bull under the bed panting.
I did what any sane person would do, I waited to see if it would stop. It didn't. The more she thumped, the more Flower freaked out. Finally, I got up. I turned the bath room light on and tried to calm the dog down.
I was trying to be quiet.
I woke up the Man in Charge. He wanted to know why I was up?
He hadn't heard a thing. Then, I went and checked on the rabbit. There was nothing after her as far as I could tell. She had made a mess of her cage and spilled hay all over the place, but that is not unusual. I topped off all her food, and walked away.
The next question is, "What do I do now?"
Before I could really begin the argument with myself regarding the pro's and con's of staying up or going back to bed...it started all over again.
I just made the coffee.
