Carrier-ing on

Friday night, I hear a noise coming from the kitchen. Since Mickey was out and about, I knew it was most likely him. I walk in and I see him wandering around his pet carrier, which was still out from earlier in the day when I had him in there so I could clean his cage. He kept poking around near the carrier door, so for ha-has, I opened the door and then went back to what I was doing.

A short time later, when he hadn't returned from the kitchen, I went in to check on him, and this is what I found:

Now you must understand this is the same rabbit who, when being placed inside this same carrier, shows his appreciation by digging at the sheet, tossing everything he can and trying to gnaw his way out. It usually takes him a good 15-20 minutes to decide that trying to get out is generally futile, so he might as well settle down and deal with it.

The next few minutes were spent bopping in and out of the carrier, and I managed to get one video good enough to display here:

I'll have to remember to empty the carrier more often, I guess.

Of course you know the next time he's got to go in the thing, he's still going to have a hissy fit.

Ahh but it's different when you make them do something, to when they decide themselves!

Bunnies are very contrary. Beth won't be picked up for a cuddle, but the minute I'm on the sofa watching TV she's on my lap with her face in mine!

Karnage was like that--didn't want to be held much, but if he was out and about and I was sitting on the floor, he'd come over beside me and settle himself down as if to say, "Ok, you can pet me now, but none of that funny stuff!" :)
