Now Playing: Boring!
It is hard to come up with Fings to type about in February!
Everything is the Same!
I guess that is good inna way, onna'count obba Fakt that Maman says being bored means that Nothing Has Gone Wrong Yet.
I can kinda see her point.
And, being a Bunny, I like things to roll along onna Reg'lar Basis, with Treats coming at their Proper Times and Salad Time arriving When It Should. There are some fings a Bunny Needs to Depend Upon!
But Onna'Udder Paw, it makes it so that I don't have much to type about inna Hay Diaries Blog every day. I mean, who wants to hear that the Biggest Fing inna Day is that Dadda went off to Township Hall to axt them why The Tax Office can't figger out Who Own The Houz? The Tax Office keeps finking it's Maman's Dadda (who was Our Bim) and Mawmie, but they have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge Years Ago, and Maman had that Bob-the-Lawyer-Guy (Who Hassa Goldfish) give them papers that said so and everyfing - but according to Dadda, the Tax Office still doesn't Get It. Maman says they could at least make her et ux, or even et filia but they won't even do *that*. It's like after eight years they have never heard of Maman - with or without her legal, married name, like mebbe they are listening to gossip mongrels again or sumfing
As Missy said, all they have to do is to go down to Saint Luke's and look inna Register, and ennyways, here is a pikchur that was taken onna porch of Saint Luke's Church on Saturday, 9 September, 2000 of me,Hunny-and-Maggie in their baskets as Weddingbunnies, happining right inna Township and not sumwhere in Inkland or enny place else, and *that* is Right Inna Lore - and you don't fink Maggie-and-me,Hunny would bother to be tricked out like that for enny wedding other than Maman's and Dadda's, do you?
So Dadda is gonna go axt them In Person WhutssamattaWiff'em.
And with the Tax Office Guy saying They Can Never Be Wrong and Dadda Knowing That He Is Right, this Should Be Inner'restin', Maman says.
The Fakt obba matter issat the taxes are allus paid, and Maman should know onna'count obba Fakt that she has been paying them since Seven Years Ago for her Mawmie when her Mawmie was sick. As Maman says, "As long as the taxes are paid and the township gets munny, they don't care *who* signs the cheque."
Which seems to be Troo.
Now Our Mayor lives in Our Neighbourhood. I fink he hassa Dawg. I don't hold this against him onna'count obba Fakt a lot of Perfectly Nice Neighbours have Dawgs living in their homes. MaryBethNextestDoor has two dawgs, Lilly and Penny who are Nice Dawgs and she is a Perfectly Nice Neighbour!
Whut bothers me is Catz that used to be Indoor Catz that sumbunny has left to be Outdoor Catz. Now they are running wild all over the place, with no homes of their own, no food of their own, no wadder bowls and no Roolz. Sum obba Catz even have the Nerve to come innu Our Back Gardin! They are all OnAlone with nobunny to care for and nobunny to care about them! Once they had homes and people, but now they are just kicked out to live or die on their onliest!
Can you believe that?
And so they are out there - strange Catz in Our Gardin.
Sumbunny just isn't taking responsibility for them and has let them go. Now they are becoming Feral, and they are running through alla Back Gardins, killing off birds and squirrels, and sneaking through the bushes.
And the most horribul part issat there usta be a Liddle Cottontail Bunny living unner'neaf obba Frunt Porch. She only lived inna Frunt Yard, onna'count obba Fakt that Maman used pooties onna Back Gardin and the Little Cottontail Bunny was too well-mannered to invade anudder bunny's terrytory. And Maman usta put out clean wadder for the Little Cottontail Bunny and summa Our Hay and Our Pellets for her, too.
But then the Irresponsible People let their Catz run free inna neighbourhood.
And although Maman and Dadda both chased the catz away frumma Frunt Gardin, the Little Cottontail Bunny hasn't been seen again.
So Maman is VERY sad and angry that there are alla these Catz running around through the back gardins, hunting and killing and looking for fings to eat because their owners are irresponsible and fink if their cat hunts a Little Cottontail Bunny, "It's Just A Bunny."
It's not "Just A Bunny" to us!
Maman says she'd like to confront the irresponsible person, whomever it is, who let the catz run wild and who says, "It's Just A Bunny", and say to them, "Guess whut? You're Just A Jerk."
But as Maman also says, she rilly can't do that onna'count obba Fakt that would be Uncharitable, and show Whut A Rilly Mean Sort of Person She Can Be If She Lets Herself Go.
But whenever I hear the catz out inna Back Gardin, I *THUMP* to let the Dawg know that there are Catz out there and axt him to chase them for me. Anna Dawg has NO PROBLEM chasing those Catz outta Our Back Gardin every chance he gets. He won't hurt them, but he makes them leave at TOP SPEEDS onna'count obba Fakt that they don't belong in Our Back Gardin.
They are Not Our Catz!
Our Catz live Uppystairs in their own Apartmint and never, ever go outside. They do not kill birds and they do not ever have to hunt for their food. They do not kill udder animals and they do not steal around in sumbunny else's bushes. Maman and Dadda make sure that Our Catz go do the V-E-Ts and have clean pootie-boxes, and go to the Spa.
As Maman says, she and Dadda take care of Our Catz. Beep is Spayed and Cokie is Neutered. The person who owns these Outdoor Catz should take responsibility for them, and care about them! And they should have them spayed and neutered so that no innocent kittens come innu the werld, and make sure that the catz are clean and healthy, and well-fed. Catz that are forced to hunt for food get sick easily and never have enough to eat.
Hoomins who just let catz go inna neighbourhood are selfish and irresponsible. They should not be allowed to own catz or enny udder critters.
The Fakt that the Mean Catz hunted down the poor Little Wild Cottontail Rabbit that used to live unner'neaf obba Frunt Porch issa Tragedy! How could sumbunny let this happin? Doesn't ennybunny care?
How can ennybunny look at rows and rows of trusting white rabbit faces lined up in collars inna laboratory, knowing that horribul fings are gonna happen to those sweet faces - and then not care about those bunnies? How can ennybunny just turn away and say, "It's Just A Rabbit"?
So I thought it was Good News when Maman told me that the Gubbermint Laboratories have said that they will No Longer Test for Toxics on Small Animals!
So millions of Bunny Lives will be saved!
Of course that means that about a million new bunny homes will need to be found for these Big White Bunnies who will no longer be used for Laboratory Testing - but with their sweet faces, I know Good People will 'dopt them!
Maman says she has allus wanted a Big White Bunny.
Our Cousin Norman in SoCal (whose Mawmie is Auntie Carla of HareWEAR!) is a Big White Bunny. Norm issa'speshully cooperative Big White Bunny Who Wears Hats. Auntie Carla sent Maman this pikchur of Norman wearing his Noo Easter Hat..
I am currently a Small NZ. That's whut Dr Sharin has down on my Medical History where it says "breed" - "Small NZ" - which means that I am a small Big White Bunny. I have the big ears and typical body-shape of the typical Big White Bunny, and the big feets with the long toes. It's just that there issa silver smudge on my nose. But I am also currently growing. Mostly Growing 'Tellygint, but still Growing, so I might become a Big White Bunny, yet.
So that's about All That Is Going On Heer.
February is a slow month at Our Warren. Alla Us Togedder are mostly just bizzy growing, which issa sorta single, solitary type of Fing that's done with Reg'lar Treats and Meals On Time.
Mouse is still watching Law & Order. Maman says she sorta wishes he'd branch out a little, and maybe watch anudder show called NCIS onna'count obba Fakt it seems to have aircraft carriers on it. Maman still likes television shows 'bout The Navy and axts Phil questions like, "Whut ship issat?" It seems that ships have numbers as well as names, anna Navy rents them out to have pictures taken for television. Even old ships. Maman was watching sumfing called "Master and Commander" and sure enough, there were rilly old ships and more Navy, all rented out to have their pictures taken for the television!
Our Bim usta build ships to put on top obba pianos. Heer issa pikchur ob Wunna Bim's Ships that is onna piano inna Living Room. Maman doesn't let Us touch it, though.
I watched summa that Master and Commander show onna'count obba Fakt it had ships in it, but then a Cokie-cat came to sit onna sofa, so I left. There was too much yelling going on, ennyways, and I don't like loud.
So that's preddy much all that has happined besides the specific Fings I've typed about. To be honest, I'm having a hard time coming up with Fings to Type About!
But like Maman says, boring is sumtimes good onna'count obba Fakt it let's you know whut Real Trubble Looks Like When It Happins!
