Okay so I live on a little farm in the woods and out house is basically just one of those sturdy little rectangular kit houses that only kinda have a foundation and only a single story. We have three dogs, a barn cat and lots of people in a little space so our doors are wide open basically any time it’s over 50 degrees (f) out.
We also have a lot of wildlife here, and while usually we get along with the wildlife pretty great (we don’t even feed our birds but they are entirely happy to come sit on the toe of your shoe and tell you all the local gossip) the standing rule is pets only in the house. This isn’t always enforceable as there have been a couple rouge chickens, juncos, and one very opinionated crow that have wandered in over the years. But my absolute favorite wildlife in the house incident was the rabbit eating the aquarium plants.
See, we have a three good sized aquariums in the main part of the house, including one 55 gallon one at the far end of the kitchen (which is about as far from the back door as you can get, this will be important) and one of the plants in it is this big mess of marsh pennywort that spills over the side and out all the way to the ground. One afternoon my brother left our room which is just across the hall from this tank and notices the hanging pennywort is… moving?
When he called me and we went over to investigate we found a rabbit that had, somehow, managed to come in through the back door and walk right past one person and three dogs (the cat was asleep on my bed and had been most of the day) to end up in the kitchen nibbling on the tank plants.
It took us two fish nets and a well placed bucket to get catch the little bugger, since he just wouldn’t run out the door that we opened right next to him.
