Funny Rat!!

As you know it has been a HOT week! So hot that all you want to do is lay around and do nothing! It is so hot that the cats are bored with the outside world.... Until this afternoon! That is when I went out on the porch to get Bella to come was 97 degrees with the heat index at 101. Just too HOT! But Bella would not move... She was intently looking out the screen.

If you look close under the rose branch, blending into the pinestraw is Funny Rat, an Eastern Cottontail Rabbit!! We saw her last week! Bell could not take her eyes off him/her. I think it is a she...I think... She was very calm and laid in the same place for 2 or 3 hours. We wondered if she was dead but she did change positions!
First position!

Second position!

Third position!

Finally she ended up this way! See her cute little white tail?! Around 6pm we got RAIN!!! She just sat there and got wet. It seemed like she was waiting for it to stop so she could explore. Which she did and made it through the fence slats into the neighbor's yard behind us!

It was a fun afternoon for all! Bella watched for awhile but got hot and bored and came in! Beau slept through most of it, but came onto the porch just before the rain! I don't think he ever saw Funny... Oh well, I'm sure she will be back... But until then, Bella will tell him all about her day!
