    DefaultDiesel's new favourite pastime...

    Digging in the yard for rabbit poop! And there is plenty of it!

    He rams his snout into the grass rooting around for it, then his head comes up and I get to see him happily chomping away. So nasty.

    Can i borrow him for tomorrow? I dont want to clean the rabbit cage,lol. Bentley used to have a thing for it. Then for about 2 months I made him stay away from the rabbit cage and it broke his habit.

    Yuck! Maxx has his head in the cat litter box when he gets the chance, which isn't often, but he is definitely persistent. If we leave the gate open to the kitties designated area Maxx is right there. This habit just gags me...

    Do you have rabbits in your yard? Where do they come from?

    Cassie does the same with cat poop! And they are so stingy and Cassie's mouth stings terrible! ..and do I let her kiss me with that mouth!?? YAK!!

    Do you know any way to get rid of the cat coming to my yard?

    Rabbits are everywhere in my area, probably most states and Canada. Keeping cats out of your yard is very difficult. Short of a very tall, stone or concrete fence around the entire back yard I am not sure how you could keep them out.

    There are tons of rabbits around here. We see at least 4 or 5 a day in the yard alone, another half dozen on our walks everyday. I love rabbits, I think they are cute, I just don't like their kibble size poop all over the yard!

    Yesterday in particular he was totally obsessed, so I pulled him off the lawn to the patio for a time out after a barrage of "leave its" he completely ignored. Had a chat with him about not eating the poop, let him go back out to the lawn and within 15 seconds he started again. This is the first time "leave it" doesn't work even with a simultaneous tug on the tie out. Wascally wabbits!!

    We have loads of Rabbits in our area, Axel use to eat there poop but has quit the habit now, as for keeping the cats out of the garden forget it, we have tried all sorts but none work. It doesn't help that one of my neighbours is a cat woman (7 cats in total). Axel will chase them out but they keep on coming back...

    Yesterday afternoon Cassie did something she never done before. She got into some bushes I have in the garden and she was scratching the ground to uncover the cats poop. While she was eating them I got on my knees and reached for her collar to pull her out. By my surprise she was very angry and trying to bite my hand. She was very very aggressive. So i pulled my hand out and in a few seconds I tried to reach her again. Again she was very aggressive and trying to bite my hand.
    She wouldn't come out for anything. Then I went back home, took the plastic cup, put some kibble inside and I went to the front door shaking it. As soon as she heart the sound of it she came running like Beep Beep (from Coyote). I shut the door and took her at the back porch and chained her. I wasn't talking to her for the rest of the night.

    But I was surprised that she was trying to bite me while she was eating the poops. When she eats kibble and I try to get her bowl while she is eating she is ok with it. She let me take it away. But when it comes to cat poop.. no siry! She's aggressive.. why is that? anyone knows?
