Sometimes I have to pause while I am in the middle of being busy, doing things in the house. I hear some little paws and wonder what they are up to. I wonder if that bunny of mine is ok.
So, I take a peak and see he is sitting comfortably in his cage. I go back to work in the house and set about my business. In a minute I hear a bell ring. Then in a few seconds I hear that bell ring again.
It is the bunny ringing his bell to get my attention. I got him this bell a year ago. I remembered that a bunny I had long ago used to ring a bell when he was ready to come inside from playing in the fenced in yard.
So I got this bunny a bell. It was in the bird section of Pet Smart. I attached it to the top of the cage. He can reach it with his little nose and ring. He knows very well now, that I come when he rings.
You might say that he has conditioned me similar to Pavlov’s dog….or is he the one who is conditioned? Actually I think we are both conditioned. He knows to ring the bell when he is hungry and I know to jump when he calls.
But the funny thing is that sometimes I answer the ringing. put food in the cage, get him all settled, and then he rings.
He is not ringing for food. He is not hurt.
If I ignore this type of ring, he will get very frantic in his ringing, the longer I do not come. Until he is banging the bell with his little nose, back and forth.
So what is he ringing for?
When I get there, I open the cage. He sticks out his head and brushes against my hand. He tucks his little head into the palm of my hand and stays there.
He is calling for love.

January 2 Pause / Paws Writing Challenge HERE
The above writing is for the Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge. You can see more information about this HERE at the Linda G. Gill blog
Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
I love bunnies so much and I would love to have more. For now I can only have the one bunny due to my living situation. But this video made me want to get a white baby bunny.
I wonder what my bunny would think about the new one? I think he would be a little jealous but then he would like it. Sometimes when I am blogging, my bunny hops up and sits my keyboard so that I have to stop typing and pay attention to him. So funny !
My daughter rescued him from getting hit by cars in the street last summer. My younger daughter, who was 11 at the time, was very surprised when her sister and I went to Quick Check for coffee and came home with the bunny.
She was scared of him for a few weeks, but eventually she became more interested in getting to know him. Now she loves him and loves to feed him and p lay with him
My older daughter was 17 at the time we got him. She is the one who gave me the puppy dog eyes of “Mom….please…”
But now we all love the bunny who we call Bunny.
Time to clean the bunny cage. I let the bunny out of his cage, with the intention to clean it. He was having a fun time hopping all around the room. I got caught up in reading blogs and just let him play on the floor next to me. A few minutes ago, I went to get the supplies for cleaning and refilling the cage.
When I came back into my room, I was checking around to see where Bunny had gone. He was not in the middle of the floor. He was not in his hiding place behind the white shelf. He was in the bunny cage.
I guess he got hungry from all the hopping and playing.He is in the cage eating his romaine lettuce. So, funny. I had all that time to clean the cage without him in it, but I took so long that he went back in. LOL So, now I will have to wait for him to eat a bit.
Then I will start cleaning around him. This will likely make him hop back out again. Then maybe I can get some new pics for you all to see. My bunny, of course, is the cutest one!
No, I love all the bunnies! Oh! Here he comes now! He has finished eating and has come out to climb on my lap. Time to clean the cage before he changes his bunny mind. Annie
This bunny of mine is so funny. I dropped some Veggie Straws on the floor, out of the bag and he ate them. He loved them. He went all around the room looking for more of them.
He found the bag that I had sitting on the floor next to the bed and stuck his cute little nose in it.
I know he should not have too many of them, but I gave him a few of them and then put the bag up on the counter.
He was so cute eating the veggie straws. he loved them so much, I think he would have eaten the whole bag. I will have to watch where I leave it. LOL
