The most recent incident on our street happened on Sunday following a Fizz walk to see the cows. Imagine the site of seeing one of your neighbours standing in their dressing gown shouting 'the rabbits have gone' repeatedly! It transpired that our other neighbour, the rabbits owner, had left them in charge of them for the weekend. However, the naughty things had launched their own 'Escape to Victory' and tunnelled out overnight. Now these rabbits are our neighbours babies, they are totally spoilt (which pet isn't) and the thought of our neighbour returning to missing rabbits made all of us feel pretty sick.
After sounding pretty silly calling 'here bunny, bunny' into the bushes we managed to track down the party animals in the garden behind our neighbours house. We then spent the next hour crawling and diving around trying to catch them. Luckily rabbit number 1 was bribed with carrot and was easier to catch but rabbit number 2 was a bit more adventurous and played hide and seek behind a shed. With the use of a garden brush and a plastic garden carrier we managed to catch the 'darling sweet thing' and marched him back to his own house! When our neighbour returned they were shocked at what their darling rabbits had been up to. I had to pay an emergency visit to our local tearoom for cake and some of their own brewed beer.
Please tell me it's not just my little road where this happens? Have you had any funny neighbourly happenings on your street?
