Just when you thought you've seen it all

    ...Bunny Steeplechase. I can't quite wrap my thick skull around the thought of people actually training a rabbit to do this. What makes it even more bizarre is that there is an organization that actually holds COMPETITIONS for this.

    It's good for a quick "..aaawwwww..." or an even quicker "wiskey-tango-foxtrot?"

    The very last one that knocked a few things down was the cutest :smile:

    I think it is funny to hear all the people cheering after that rabbit did that high jump :rofl:

    And the competitions are incredibly tight. The final scores differ only by a hare.

    ...the losers get hopping mad!!!

    Since I've already shot my GPA [groan point average]...

    When the scores are announced, the competitors are all ears.

    Try cheese. Chester, our male cat, shows up at my side if I open a packet of cheese and he will follow me closely and climb over stuff he would normally not to stay close to the cheese.

    Misty, our female, prefers yoghurt, vanilla ice cream or milk (sweetened from cereal). Most of the time, she just sits and waits patiently, and watches, but sometimes she climbs onto the lap and attempts to grab the cup or bowl one is holding.

    Hmm...mine is trained to come running from anywhere in the house to the kitchen the moment I take her can of food out of the fridge. She plays fetch too. And, she's really good at following the command, "Get your little butt off of there!" :approve:
