Run Rabbit Run!


This title could be so misleading, I am writing about a real live little bunny rabbit. Somebody could look at the title and think, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album…It’s a line from the song Breathe. So, no sorry we’re not talking about Pink Floyd today. But I had to pick this title, read on please and you will see why!

This happened on my way home from a quick jaunt to the grocery store and thankfully it had a good ending. Living in a more rural area there is always a chance of rabbits, squirrels, possum, skunks, maybe even a deer running in front of your car. The thoughts make me shudder, seriously. I haven’t ever hit anything except years ago a possum…I pulled over and check if it was OK. Sad news, it wasn’t and I sat in the car and cried about ending its poor little life and felt so guilty.

Anyway, I am so careful because that incident so upset me and I never want to repeat it. Autumn is so much the same way, we just cringe at the mere thought of hitting any living thing. Anyway, back to my story of last night… So, it was almost dark outside by now.  I am driving carefully home and a mere few blocks from my house a little rabbit decided to cross the road. No, not in front of my car… Run Rabbit Run!

I of course was only driving maybe 15 to 20 miles an hour and nobody was behind me, I slammed on the brakes. I know, something we are never supposed to do, since it may cause an accident. We learned that early in our driving lessons, but come on…Who isn’t going to slam on brakes or swerve? I think it has to be an instinct, or maybe not…I could be making up excuses perhaps? I really am a safe and cautious driver, so please don’t think I am some crazed driver who makes up her own rules.

Well, I will need to ask you kind reader’s opinions on this one. Who wants to snuff out an animal’s life, it’s so traumatizing and very sad! This little bunny rabbit really was so kind, it quickly ran the other way…Running like it was practicing for a bunny marathon race. So a happy ending and I am so glad that little bunny will live to see and hop through another day! :)

    • Oh Marvin, I just had a feeling this would be your opinion. I know, I am very careful and won’t be causing a traffic accident. But the bunny was so cute and I saved it’s little life and didn’t cause an accident. I will be thinking of what you said, I promise. You sure wanted me to think about it TOAST is in caps! :)

  1. Oh thank God the rabbit was saved…it will kill me if i ever hit any living thing,…
    you are a sweetheart Gabby thinking so much about little creatures of nature..was such a good thing you did :)
    .I read it somewhere
    ..Dare to be the best you can –
    At all times, Dare to be!” ….I know you do it all the time :)

    hugs n love :)

    • I am so glad the little rabbit was saved, too Soma. :) All those little creatures of nature are special and I’m with you about not hitting any living thing. Thank you for the kind words, you are so sweet and such a supportive friend! Dare to be the best you can…It’s a wonderful way to be, and you are also the same way Soma! :) Hugs and Love :)

    • I suppose that is a thought, natural instinct kicked in but it can also be dangerous! Thanks so much for reading and being kind enough to leave a coment. :)

  2. I would have done the same thing, Gabby, unless it would have been hazardous to drivers behind me…it really depends on each situation, but I definitely don’t want to hit any live creature. It would crush me and thankfully, I haven’t as of present time! I’m glad this had a happy ending, not only for you and the bunny, but for your readers! :) xo

    • It really is comforting to know you feel the same as me about hitting any living creatures Lauren. I’m glad you never hit anything and I will be praying you, me or anyone reading never has that happen. You know, I was very blessed there wasn’t any car behind me and also I was driving very slowly. It was a happy ending for the bunny and me, too and for all of the kind readers! :) xo
