The Two Foot Rule

Okay, every bunny owner knows there is a rule.  It's called the Two Foot Rule.  It's a simple way of maintaining order and preventing the world as you know it from being completely destroyed.  The Two Foot Rule is quite simple.  If you don't want it chewed, keep it at least two feet off the ground. 

Us bunnies can tell a quality item from an inferior item.  For example, I never chew on Mom's Payless Shoes, but I love a good chow down on her Birkenstocks!  Another example is Mom's Coach purse.  Mom loves Coach.  And so do I!  The leather is so soft and supple and a dream to snack on.  It's not very often I get the opportunity to sink my teeth into something so premium, but recently, the opportunity presented itself.

All I had to do was hop over to it sitting on the floor and Mom was on me like stink.  "McFlufferson!  Get away from Mommy's Coach purse right now!"  She got up and ran over to it, only to discover that she was too late - I had already indulged!  Check out the close-up of my handy work - matching notches on the trim and the strap, along with a scratch for good measure.  "BAH!!!!!!"  she raged as she shook her fist at me.  "FLUFFY!  How could you?!  Mommy's best purse!" she whined.  "Come on Mom.  The Two Foot Rule.  You know it and I know it.  The second you put that thing on the floor and walked away, it was fair game!"  She sighed and conceded defeat.  "Yes Fluffs, you're right.  Mom should have known better...."

Check out some more examples of my handy work.  These are the baseboards in our room.  Pretty impressive, huh?  And just so you know, this work of art extends around the entire perimeter of the room, exactly even too!  Of course, some areas, like behind the TV cabinet and behind the couch are not quite complete, but work has begun.  In fact, when we got the new carpet, Mom and Dad had to move the couch, and couldn't figure out how Binky and I got to the back of it to start some chewing.  Clearly we are proving ourselves to be quite the unpredictable pair.

And here is a shot of Miss Binks taking credit for the coffee table legs - notice how she has delicately chewed around ever corner.  Every leg looks like this.  You can even see work has begun on the part above the shelf as well.  This is a work in progress - we are aiming for a completion date of early 2012.

So there you have it folks.  If you've never heard of the Two Foot Rule, consider yourselves warned.  If you want it kept in pristine condition, keep it two feet off the ground.  Otherwise - CHOMP!

It seems perfectly logical to us: a 2 foot rule for the two foots. And may we compliment you on your sense of symmetry with regard to your tooth designs. Logical, goal-oriented, buns--who could ask for better betters?

LOL, that is some fabulous work you and miss Binks have done, such talented chewing, and how she managed to get the table legs so even is very admirable in deed:)

I love coach too! Hef's not a purse chewer, lucky me! I do like the table legs though it looks "distressed"

Mom keeps trying to teach Jon the two foot rule...

All of mom's purses look like that, including her Michael Kors which was a gift. The Vera Bradleys get the worst beating since they're all fabric. At least leather does't fray.

Nice renovations! Biff is currently renovating the new landlord's carpet...
