But first, this is my own pet bunny, her name is Frisky and she was all white. And my brother Lee, had Smokey who was all black. We had the rabbits for several years but as they grew bigger and bigger, they were less easy to handle and we eventually gave them away. But oh how we loved them when they were little and I have a soft place in my heart for rabbits.
So anyone up for a laugh? I was getting my hair done one day many years ago and the guy in the chair next to me was telling this story. He had recently purchased a new house and as a single guy moving into a new neighborhood with lots of families and children and pets, he so badly wants to fit in. Finally, one day his opportunity comes. He is asked to care for a neighbor's house, their dog, and pet bunny while they are on vacation. This is his chance to make a good impression and he willingly accepts to housesit and pet sit.
Day one, the dog comes running up to him with a DEAD bunny in its mouth. Oh he was freaking out! This was no way to make a good impression on the new neighborhood and just wait till everyone heard what a crappy job he had done. So he comes up with the idea to clean this poor bedraggled bunny up. He washes it, dries it with a blowdryer and gently lays it inside the cage. He is hoping the owners will think it merely passed away on its own while they were gone.
The neighbors return. He doesn't hear a thing for a few days. Finally he approaches them. Oh they were sorry they hadn't talked with him yet, but they were in a state of shock. Had he heard the news, they asked? Their poor children had been traumatized upon their return.
You see the bunny had died moments BEFORE they left on their trip and they had ceremoniously buried it in the back yard... only to return home and find it all cleaned up and IN THE CAGE in the house!!!!
My stylist and I had tears streaming down our face as the guy told this story! He told it in such earnest and we were trying so hard not to eavesdrop...
So this is my bunny story. Like Lilly, I want to know, do you have a good housesitting/pet sitting gone wrong story to share?
