Worn out Molly
Last summer D found a baby rabbit who had been dumped in a box in the alleyway. We adopted him, he is now called 'Binky', which we discovered was a word used in the rabbit world to describe the mad running and jumping that rabbits sometimes do, and which he does a lot. Recently because of the cold we have kept his hutch in the back of the boat and let him run around a bit in the boat. Molly at first chased him everywhere, pushing him with her paws when he sat still because she wanted him to move and driving him to hide under the settee. Now he is a bit older and hormones are kicking in the tide has turned, because he has suddenly decided Molly is the love of his life and he must jump on her back and attempt to mate with her as often as possible. Now it's her turn to hide from him!
