Monday Mario

One night a few years ago I had some salad as part of my dinner. I didn't eat it all and threw a few lettuce leaves (covered in salad dressing) into the garbage can. Mario was out and about the apartment. I don't call him "Chunky Monkey" for nothing. He realized there was something good in the can and started standing on his tippy-toes to try to get a peak inside. I pushed him down and figured he'd get tired of it. Half a minute later I happened to look back towards the can. Mario got a running start and jumped head-first into the garbage can without the slightest hesitation! It was more of a paper wastebasket than a real garbage can and he didn't really fit inside of it. He was in a vertical position, nose down, happily munching on lettuce leaves. I was so horrified that he was sitting on his face I had to fish him out before I had a chance to get a picture.

A little later down the road he was out and about again and I was watching television. I heard a huge crash, turned around and saw this:

This time I had time to get my camera. He must have been disappointed there weren't any goodies inside. He had a puzzled look on his face as if to say, "Now, how do I get myself out?"

Mario's a little over 5 lbs which I think is probably considered to be a medium rabbit (probably the small side of medium). I think most people are used to baby bunnies which are definitely much smaller!
