Bunny Buddies

I grew up in a neighborhood full of squirrels. They were kind of cute, but they were also a nuisance. Fortunately, we now live in a neighborhood where there aren’t many squirrels. Every so often, we will see a squirrel and one of us will say “Oh look, there’s the neighborhood squirrel!” Sometimes it will be weeks between squirrel sightings. What we do have here is bunnies – Cute little cottontail bunnies. It was the weirdest thing to me the first time I spotted a bunny hopping around outside. A wild bunny was something I had never seen before. To this day, the bunnies outside are kind of a novelty to me, and I love to watch them.

We have a pair of bunnies that likes to hang out in our back yard. They’re usually out there for a good part of the day, eating weeds and hopping around. We call one of them “Bunny” and the other one we call “Skittish Bunny”. We can get pretty close to Bunny before he hops away, but Skittish Bunny darts away at the first sign of movement. This is Skittish Bunny. He’s a little skinnier than Bunny.

This is Bunny. Bunny is the fatter of the pair. Hopefully that doesn’t mean we will have more baby bunnies in the yard soon.

Aren’t they cute? Despite the gardening challenges (don’t plant pansies and petunias!), we are fond of our little friends. They try really hard to help us keep the yard mowed (haha) and they’re much cuter than squirrels!
