Our furry little explorer.

River discovered how to get behind the loveseat.  Here she is finding out that the way is shut.
To give you an idea of scale, the window sill is only 5 inches (12.7cm) wide, but it's 4 1/2 feet (137.16cm) long.  You can understand my concern with her getting back there and me trying to retrieve this intrepid furry explorer.  I had to drag her back out the first time and just barely managed to reach her.
Well, clearly the road closure was the Christmas cactus' fault.  It was taught a lesson by being tipped over. 
Don't worry, no harm came to the bunny or the plant (it only lost a few flower buds)--this type of cactus has no spines even though it looks pointy.  I later had to re-locate it so River wouldn't try to molest it further.
This is River's 'I'll be back' look.  She doesn't seem to get that even if I store some of their toys in the box under the sill, that doesn't mean that that makes it their territory.
She is nothing if not persistent.  If the direct approach won't work, try from the arm of the loveseat.  My hand is there to prevent her from jumping down onto the sill because she would do that in a heartbeat if given half a chance.  No fear in this one!
Clearly, an aerial assault would be the way to go in this case.  She's like a furry little boomerang!  This is when she was scooped up and playtime was officially over for the day.

Thank you to everyone who has visited this blog!  We hit 50,000 all time page views earlier this week, which just gives me the warm and fuzzies that you like us enough to keep coming back. :)
Have a great weekend and we'll be back on Monday!
