Our son and his wife were embarking on a short vacation and we were entrusted with their little ones’ (our fur Grand-Babies) care. They have 3 bunnies and a chinchilla. We were both honoured and nervous, likely both signs of good Grandparents. As they do not play nicely together, each one had to be let out separately for exercise, so there were no spats. All in all, we enjoyed the experience.
Doin’ the Bunny Hop
They walk through the door, like they own the place,
but when we see them, we don’t know their face.
With clumsy hands, they maneuver our homes,
not like we’re used to, but we’ve room to roam.
Hall doors are closed and soon all is secure,
After one more check, its time for our tour.
Impatient Eleanor, first to run free,
binking and hopping, just as it should be.
Next comes Carob, her cage such a real mess.
Could it be much worse? The answer is yes.
Amelia the mischievous goes last,
zipping by at top speed, she has a blast.
Cages cleaned, food and water just dandy,
At long last, it was time for poor Ande.
He slowly creeps about from side to side,
Despite the strangers, he takes it in stride.
Playtime done, we fur babies settle in,
these “hoomins” were nice, hope they come again.
…….and now, the stars of our little play…….
