Everyone has bad habits of one sort or another. It's usually not a serious matter if your worst habit is biting your nails or squeezing the toothpaste tube in the middle. But when you have bad habits in your caring for your animals the results can be disastrous. Thankfully, ours have only been surprising and silly. For example, we (alright, it's me! I confess!) had gotten in the habit of just pushing the door to the rabbit's pen closed and not shutting the bolt. This had never been an issue until we got the goats. The goats are curious and pushed on the rabbits gate. Unfortunately they did this when we were out, and we came home to find the rabbits hippity hopping about the backyard. Twice.
See, that's the thing about bad habits. Even when you see that it's a bad habit it's hard to stop it. But I swear, I will always bolt the rabbits pen from now on. Pinky promise with chocolate sprinkles on top.
