I just sat down at the computer to type up a post and I heard Barney at the door. I noticed it wasn't quite light outside and I let him in the house. Next thing you know I heard the most pitiful screaming cry coming from the kitchen. I ran out to see what it was and saw that Barney had caught a baby rabbit and brought him in the house. I hadn't even see it; the rabbit's fur was the same color as Barney.
I called Gary and he came and got the rabbit in a dustpan and put him out on the bark. The rabbit was very traumatized. I went out with my camera to see if the rabbit was still there and it hopped up to some weeds. It sat there for a minute and then it ran away. I hope the rabbit is ok. Meanwhile Barney is scratching like crazy at the door to go outside. He'll have to stay in for quite a while now to give the baby rabbit a chance to get away. I previously had given Barney a half a can of wet cat food so it wasn't like he was hungry. But cats are hunters; it's in their instinct and they can't help themselves.
I looked up a video so you could hear what a baby rabbit sounds like and as I was playing it Barney came running into the bedroom and jumped up on the computer desk looking for the rabbit. Big mistake. Now Barney is lying by my chair looking and looking for that rabbit. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
