Chitter snapped this picture out her bedroom window.
Mr. Cottontail pranced back and forth so long that we decided he must have been posing for her or laughing at us because he just ate the tops off all of my beans.
I tried to remember all the rabbit folklore I knew to share with you, but only 2 things came to mind: the obvious a lucky rabbit foot; and you shouldn’t kill rabbits to eat until after the first few heavy frosts in fall to make sure any wolves (parasites) on the rabbit are gone.
I checked with Frank C. Brown to see if he had any good ones to add:
- A rabbit cannot be trapped in a new box trap-you must use old boards to make the box
- If a rabbit being chased by dogs stops and licks his paws-the dogs will never find him (I know a beagle down the hill who would disagree with this one)
- Seeing a rabbit while fishing is bad luck
- On the first day of the month say Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit and you’ll get a present before you know it (I hope all of you will be saying Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit with me on the first of the month)
Seeing Mr. Cottontail out Chitter’s window reminded me of some of her silly videos from snap chat that make her look like a rabbit.

Aren’t I just a pretty little rabbit? I think my ears are to big though. So I’m thinking about having just a little bit of bunny botox!
I’m just a little rabbit. They told me I could be anything. So do you know? Do you know what I said? I said, bite like a spider, run and sting like a rabbit!
Let me tell you something in rabbit world. I just saw my best friend Benny’s foot hanging on a chain in a little treasure shop. That’s messed up its not lucky for the rabbit!
Hope you enjoyed the silliness and if you’ve got any other rabbit folklore please share it.
