Rabbit Rocket Launch In 3 2 1 – LIFTOFF!

A bunny came so close to entering Sibe Quentin yesterday afternoon while our ever-vigilant Little Prince prepared for rabbit rocket launch.

Little Prince Typhoon Phooey considers himself the master rabbit hunter. If a bunny makes the mistake of coming inside the fence, His Majesty will outrun and outmaneuver him for the kill. The photograph above shows our predator as he waits – as patiently as he can – for a mistake to be made.

Despite the rapid launch of the following photos, be aware that the rabbit bolted before entering the fence, so no bunnies were harmed in the making of this photograph. Oh, and you can click on the image to see an enlarged view.

Rabbit Rocket Launch . . . and a miss.

P.S. – Yes, Typhoon has entered coat blowing season. Remember, he hates to be brushed and he hates the blower. He will scream when either is close to him. And, yes, we mean scream. A high-pitched screech that should be used by horror movie producers everywhere.

    In 3 years the Little Prince has gone from the rabbits in the mountains to squirrels by the ocean and back again. Rabbits are more tasty then tree rats.

    LOVE these way back Wednesdays-especially when my own comment is there! I do know the Little Prince will be extremely happy when the new fence is done so he can once again be a rocket ship at the bunnies!
