Eli the bunny got relocated to the garden today. He has been living in our home office since we got him and is allowed to roam the office during the day. Unfortunately, he has developed the bad bunny habit of chewing electrical cords (why do they do that?). A few nights ago, he chewed through a lamp cord and blew a circuit breaker. He also singed his whiskers and the fur around his mouth, but was otherwise unharmed. Today we discovered he had eaten the phone cord. So we moved him outside, where he can hop around the backyard during the day and be safe in his hutch at night, with no electrical cords in reach.
I put him in his cage for an hour to get him used to the idea, then opened the door. He cautiously poked his head out, then slid out himself...and then promptly turned tail and hopped back into his hutch.
