I have a (semi) pet bunny
named "scooter", since that is how quick he moves. He has been coming to visit my back yard for over a year ( maybe others, too, but you know how they all look alike).
I put out water for the birds but the squirrels and Scooter enjoy it too. I have bought rabbit pellets ( alfalfa) and put those in safe places around the yard where a hawk will not likely swoop down and carry him away for dinner. This is his food spot in the front yard. The fence and trees give him some security while he eats.
I am a nut, no wonder the squirrels chase me!
