Speaking of rabbits, we had one that we left out in the yard to eat clover this summer.  Ended up getting two botfly warbles, one over it's eye, the other on its throat.  Basically it couldn't see or hardly breathe.  Then it got fly strike.  Wow, talk about gruesome.  If you are wondering, you can google images "fly strike" and "botfly warble" and get a whole new education along with a tummy-ache.

The other rabbit is staying in its cage.  By itself.

Nope, not getting anymore rabbits after witnessing all that.

By the way anyone want a cat, Ill trap it and you just pay shipping! grin


Here is a place for your cats

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081218/ap_on_re_as/as_china_cat_protest

GUANGZHOU, China – While animal lovers in Beijing protested the killing of cats for food on Thursday, a butcher in Guangdong province — where felines are the main ingredient in a famous soup — just shrugged her shoulders and wielded her cleaver. "Cats have a strong flavor. Dogs taste much better, but if you really want cat meat, I can have it delivered by tomorrow," said the butcher, who gave only her surname, Huang.

"Cat tastes a bit like lamb. I don't like it much," she said. "Young cats are tender, but the meat on the older ones is really tough. Usually old people like eating it."

One of my cats years ago killed a chipmunk that had a warble in it..eewwww!!  I was totally grossed out, huge UGLY thing it was.  Very leathery so I put it ina baggie, sprayed bugspray in it & stuck it under the windshield wiper of my car in the sun..the next day it was STILL alive!!  Didn't have the internet to google back then & I was so grossed out that I ran it up to the vet to see what it was. (he didn't charge me by the way Wink)  Then I tossed it into the burn barrel fire! I have feral rabbits here, well only 1 left, a little chox rex.  I put grain down for it & it eats the wheat from the pigeon food cause they don't, likes fruit & peelings too like the chix. There were 2 white ones for 4-5 years.  They went between my place & the 3 houses around me.  Amazing they survived as they really don't blend in.. huh  J

Thanx Brian, but I'm good!  No doubt something will show up..they always do. Would be nice if an alpaca or ready to butcher steer came!  A couple of years ago a young angus did, I called him Stewart for the day he was here.  He was very friendly but the goat & horse wanted nothing to do with him! J

Those warbles kinda look like what we call "the wolf", I've seen wild rabbits get them, kinda nasty.

Dang Jerry, and I thought cats tasted like chicken!

There is one thing worse than what you did, Cindi, and that is TRYING to kill a chicken but being unable to.  I could tell some stories but you might be eating your dinners.
