Roman is a strange rabbit. He makes no secret of the fact that he loves freedom – who can blame him?

This is why I found it most peculiar when, during one of Roman’s explorations of our front room, he took an incredible interest in his cage. The same cage he refuses to enter at bedtime.

Considering Roman’s fascination with the cage, Claire and I removed the bars, so that if he really wanted to return to what is effectively his bedroom, he could.

Amazingly, he happily hopped into his cage. Admittedly, Roman did appear a little confused once he discovered that he had been imprisoned, but he certainly didn’t look upset or angry and his lack of freedom.

We did let him back out of the cage a short while later. Claire had prepared his lunch – a hearty meal of nuggets and green leaved vegetables.

The gourmet meal was enough to tempt our bunny from out of his cell. However, as soon as Roman had finished munching, he was dashing around again. He didn’t even hang around for coffee or an After Eight mint – although was considerate enough to leave us a tip. It is just a shame this “tip” was a pile of small brown balls, which are certainly not legal tender!

It wasn’t long before he returned to the outside of his cage. Pacing around the bars and trying to find a means of access. His efforts were futile. The cage had been secured – Roman was locked out.

His persistence paid off. Claire allowed him back in. This time, however, his stay would prove to be a lot longer than the one he enjoyed pre-lunch.

I think the fact we basically called Roman’s bluff, before allowing him to stay in the cage for a prolonged period, caused him great confusion.

While the situation Roman had placed himself in was rather funny, his cuteness pulled at our heart strings. Claire and I therefore released him back into the front room – again!

Of course, there was a strong chance of this process continuing indefinitely…

1) Place Roman in cage
2) Allow Roman to stay in cage
3) Release Roman from cage
4) Repeat

To avoid this madness, Roman was given what we believed to be a choice… spend the remainder of the day out of his cage, or locked up in it. He picked the latter.

Roman therefore spent what was left of his Sunday afternoon in the comfort and safety of his cage.

Very odd behaviour. Thankfully he has shown no lack of energy and maintains a strong, healthy appetite. Despite appearing physically well, we will certainly have to keep an eye on Roman to ensure he stays fit and healthy.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
