On Saturday evening we had a bit of excitement. Phil came into dinner from the garden with a great big grin on his face. He told me to look out the window where the cat cage was sitting on top of the refrigerator. I smirked and asked, "What'd you catch? A rabbit?" He laughed and said "Yes!" This of course started and erruption of excitement from all the kids as they wanted to see it and hear how daddy caught the rabbit. We tried to get them to settle down so we could pray then daddy would tell his story. That didn't work, so Phil shared how he caught the bunny.

Phil was out in the garden and heard a squeel from an animal in pain. He turned to see a stray black cat with a baby bunny in his jaw running out of the garden. The cat ran toward the neighbors yard where he was greeted by two barking dogs. Startled he dropped the bunny and dashed away. The bunny scared by the dogs too ended up cornered in a section of the fence. Phil ran to get gloves and the cat cage. He put the little guy into the cat cage.

That evening we fed him some carrots and Phil did some research online about caring for a bunny. He was very young our guess was about 8 weeks old or so.

The next day after church we let Elizabeth hold it and the others pet it. Phil will ad some pictures of the bunny to this post, later. Sadly, Phil discovered on the DNR site that it is illegal to keep a wild bunny. So he and the kids let the bunny go less than 24 hours after he had saved it from the cat.
