The Longest Father's Day

It is both the longest day of the year and Father's Day today here in the UK.

I am sure Whisky would like to have done something special for me, but with no cash income or opposable thumbs his options for buying or making something are pretty limited. But that didn't stop him.

Rabbits do not like being picked up for cuddles - they are a prey species so being lifted off the floor triggers a natural fear response that they've been grabbed. Some will freeze or go quiet, some will fight back. Because of this, although I would love to cuddle my fluffy little boy all the time I resist the temptation and restrict cuddle time to those occasions where I've got no other choice but to pick him up, like health checking and medicine times.

I can only assume then that Whisky decided my Father's Day present should be a long cuddle. This is the only reason I can think of why he would choose to trample through uneaten caecals caking ALL FOUR of his paws (a new record) - to force me to pick him up for Father's Day cuddles. And cleaning. Lots and lots of fur cleaning.

Happy Father's Day everyone.

"Happy Father's Day. Stoopid human."


  1. And, you thought he had forgotten. Happy Fathers' Day, B-HV.

  2. Whisky is a generous despot at heart. He knows he has to throw cuddles his Daddy's way once in a while or the daddy-creature will get grumpy. He just chooses to hide his generous side behind icky tasks so you don't think he's growing soft.

    Hoppy Father's Day. :D

  3. Hehehe we just need an excuse is all,Happy Belated Fathers day,xx Speedy
