Someone must have put a package of Viagra in the briar patch. Bunnies
are everywhere this year. Talking about the Eastern cottontail.
Everytime you look out the window, there are bunnies. It's a plague.
Even the fat, lazy, neutered, elderly cat was able to catch four or
five of them this spring. They don't really do any harm. They're not
bothering any of the old lady's flowers. The only crops they've ever
attacked were certain types of lettuce and I stopped growing lettuce
many years ago.

Do rabbits really need Viagra?

The cute little *******s are methodically working their way through

Coyotes kept our Alabama local population down for many years but this
year I'm seeing cottontails all over the place. Guess they're
breeding faster than the coyotes can catch them.

That's a fact, I have seen more rabbits and young squirrels this year than
I can ever remember.

The lower end has had it rough from hurricanes for years, starting with
frederick
in '78. It's hard to imagine the past beauty of the lower end looking at it
now.
It is still a nice place to visit.

I agree. But wildlife follows a food chain, and the cat that catches
a rabbit is itself a favorite catch for the coyote. I believe it all
balances out in the end unless man intervenes and tips the scale.

I'm sure the animal shelter is full of cats that would love to chase
rabbits.
