The Great Escape
So, yesterday, my son went downstairs and decided to help with the bunny. (I had been in the cage earlier, cleaning and sweeping, and giving her food.)
I came down later, and the cage door was open, and.... there was NO bunny! LOL. There was a pair of scissors, a few foamie cars, some playdoh, and the dustpan.
Frappie had a fun vacation in the basement all the way until this morning. I couldn't get her, she kept hiding in the gap in the heater and water heater. Yikes.
Well, today I got drastic, and brought down Vanilla Wafers, put them in her cage, and rattled around until I knew she heard me. She didn't budge, so I rooted her out with a long wrapping paper tube. She ran to the other side of the cage, and I shooed her in the right direction. Finally, she hopped right back into her cage, and I was able to close the door. Frappie enjoyed her Nilla Wafers, and I got the zip ties, and closed the door permanently. I can step over the side, but I had the door, so it would be easier for me if I didn't feel like stepping over. Now, at least I know a little boy can't sneak down, and open it.
