For the last little while, Tofu has been making his presence known at 6.30am. Rabbits are amazing at telling the time. Maybe he has a rabbit-sized blind person’s watch that’s he’s hidden from us or the morning birds sing the time in their song.
The other morning Tofu woke us with loud thumping around the house which is usually a sign of danger or generally being pissed off. I got up and fed him – that seemed to satisfy him.
Yesterday morning he jumped up onto the couch for snuggles (I’d fallen asleep on the couch that night).
This morning he came into our room and made noises next to my side of the bed waiting to be scooped up onto the bed.
I don’t speak rabbit, but I try to understand. Here are the conclusions that I’ve surmised for his morning wake up call.
- He’s decided that 6.30am is breakfast time
- It’s getting colder in the mornings and he wants warmth and pets
- He thinks we should be getting up by then and is disgusted at us
In any case, I’m quite enjoying our morning wake up calls, and the self-delivering bunny snuggler is pretty nice too.
