We haven't proved to Mom that our long standing enemy is back, but it is important to know your enemy. This is a rabbit. Don't give it the cute bunny name or Moms starting thinking Easter bunny, cartoon bunnies and your cause is lost. Think of it as a veggie thief. It is a cunning master of disguise. Like you, it knows how to use its cuteness to manipulate and get what it wants.
If this were some ugly looking snake, Mom would be right with us telling Dog Dad to hunt it down and make it leave. However, she looks at that face and goes weak. We have used the cuteness manipulation all too often and now it’s coming back to bite us. This criminal is using our own best tool against us.
Memorial Day will soon be here and Mom and Dad will be veggie planting. We need to remove these veggie eating criminals before that happens. First, we have to locate them and prove to Mom and Dad that they are indeed returned. Then we have to find some way for Mom and Dad to stop taking pictures and take action to protect the veggies against these destructive beasts. Sure, they look cute. That is their evil weapon. The plants know better.
