Look what we found in the study this morning. How it got into the house is a complete mystery (surely not the cat door?), but its presence certainly explains why Maisie was so restless at 3am.
I think it’s just a baby. Forbearing Husband has named it Stu (he has a bit of a warped sense of humor). I think he’s quietly hoping we might keep it (he’s a sucker for baby animals, remember). And I’m not so sure I want it going back to the rabbit friends and relations to report on the location of an abundant veggie garden. We are considering the possibilities. A very un-farmer-like pet? Or perhaps the start of a meat breeding programme? Hmmm. What would you do?
For non-NZ readers confused by the title; ‘Oma Rapiti’ is the Maori version of the nursery rhyme ‘Run Rabbit’. Pretty much every NZ child learns it at kindy.
