As told to Bibi Farber
Everyone is so worried because I started eating Rocky’s cat litter. I eat the kind of cat litter Rocky has because it tastes good because it’s made out of corn. We’re not really supposed to eat corn though. But I am not worried.
But Maria and Bibi got very worried. Because this is cat litter that clumps all together when Rocky pees in it. They don’t want it to clump in my bunny belly. They called the people who make it and they said it’s ok just a little bit don’t let bunny eat too too much of that.
For a long time Bibi had to lock me in our room when nobody was home to make sure I didn’t go into Rocky’s cat pan.
But I still went there if I could when nobody was looking and I started making my magic pellets in there and peeing there myself.
Maria says maybe Sandra wants to be a cat?
I don’t want to be a cat. I like being a bunny. But I do want to eat the corn cat litter and make magic pellets in Rocky’s pan because I want Rocky to know I think I can do anything I want, even though I know that’s his place. It’s because I want to be dominant. Did you know a bunny could be dominant over a big boy cat if they want to?
Every day I made some magic pellets there. Maria and Bibi got very tired of cleaning up after me. Because I have to hop everywhere I go. I can’t step in and out of cat pans. It means there was a huge spray of cat litter all over the floor every time I had a little visit there because my back legs are so so strong.
Especially if they saw me and yelled NO SANDRA!
Then they thought: What would make a bunny run away and not ever want to be here? They put lots of pepper in the cat pan. But I didn’t care. Then they put salt in. I even liked the corn cat litter with a little salt, I just drank more water.
Bibi was upset and asking what we should do because nobody wanted to lock me in our room all the time and Maria really likes this kind of cat litter called The World’s Best Cat Litter.
Then Bibi looked up “Rabbit Deterrent” on the Internet. Supposed to be for people who are trying to keep rabbits out of their gardens. It said all kind of things- but one of them was the best smelling idea.
She found out that bunnies hate lavender!
She bought lots of lavender and threw some in Rocky’s pan every day.
When I went to eat my corn cat litter I jumped back a little because I think that lavender smell stinks so so bad. I got closer and smelled it and I pulled away.
Everyone started laughing because now they tricked the bunny. I hate lavender!
I tried to find some cat litter that was not messed up with lavender but there wasn’t any.
That did make me stop eating the corn cat litter. But it did not stop me from making magic pellets there.
Then Maria said : “I have an idea! I think Sandra just wants a cat pan of her own near where Rocky’s is.”
So they put another pan there for me, with my things I like which are newspaper and hay.
And the first day they did that I started making magic pellets in my pan there.
Sometimes Rocky wants to go in MY pan too. He peed in my pan today!
And here I am in my magic pellet pan in Bibi’s room. This is where I am supposed to go.
But Bibi and Maria only have one bathroom. People are bigger and very different. They need a whole room not just a pan. And they think lavender smells good and they want places to smell like that.
We are all different but we like to live here together and we are happy.
