When Milo runs around the house, it seems that he purposely tries to get under foot! I have accidentally kicked him so many times. :oops:

My OH kicked Eddison yesterday, and he felt awful.

Has anyone else ever kicked a bunny by accident?

Ive kicked and trod on Strawberry hundreds of times. He runs directly under your feet so its impossible to avoid.

It was late at night, i went to the bathroom and when i returned it was too dark to see them and i kicked Butters in the face, then i got in bed and she jumped in and i punched her in the face too :oops::lol: I felt awful but she didn't seem phased, just stole some shortbread and ran off :roll::lol:

When I walk in Artie's territory I walk with my feet at least 8 inches apart as he has a habit of darting between my feet as I walk and getting squashed :roll: I have tripped over him a few times and I think I've caught him with my heel when he's following too closely as well, you have to be constantly aware of them hanging round your feet. He can't 'arf move fast for a 5 year old bunster :love::love:

Yes, and I felt absolutely terrible, so it's actually quite reassuring in a bizarre sort of way to know that other people have done it too.

Buns were out in the garden and I was taking some washing out to the line so carrying a basket which I couldn't see around or under very well. Pom had come running up to say 'hello' and as I walked to the washing line I just kicked her as I walked. I was mortified but fortunately no damage was done and a few Fenugreek Crunchies later she was my friend again. :)

Jet always used to get under my feet, once I was hanging the washing out and I tripped over her and almost hung myself on the line :shock: Before she was spayed she was awful.

Now, unfortunately it's little Bob who I'm always trying to avoid, I sometimes end up catching her but more so injure myself :evil:

I think that's the problem with them freeranging :lol:

Hoppit!
20-09-2009, 07:25 PM
Yes. I'm always stepping on them too! :shock: I could never have a house bun.

I did an amazingly dramatic fall up the hallway to avoid standing on one of mine. :roll: He was shadowing me, I turned, my foot hovered over him and actually brushed his back - I swung around to put it down and nearly fell, but he ran that way too.. So I let myself fall with a crash. I was lay on the floor, dazed and half having a heart attack and the daft rabbit was skipping about licking my head and nibbling my hair like 'that was fun!!'

All the time!! Stupid Petal runs into my feet ALL the time. It's got to the point I take dainty little steps for fear of her running under my feet lol

My first rabbit Thumper was stood on by my step dad and was killed. My step dad couldn't stop crying and couldn't look at me for ages. He was walking out of the garage and didnt see him. Sorry, awful story but everyone please be careful! It always scares me and if I see Hayden or Dudley by my oh's feet im always like, look out Dudley is behind you! scary! :cry:

Yes, but mainly only Badger. We have all had to develop the Badger Shuffle to enable us to get round without jet propelling him across the room.

Its horrible, he's such a hazard, but such a love bug which is why he is wherever we are.

I had never kicked Pipkin before, he's pretty good at avoiding feet, but I kicked Ruby the other day and felt really really guilty. It's good to know I'm not the only one!
I was crouched down to clean the hutch and Ruby's pretty nosey and I didn't realise she'd come up behind me to see what I was doing. When I went to stand up my foot sort of moved back and I kicked her in the head :(
She didn't seem to mind too much so I don't think she was hurt but I gave her lots of cuddles anyway.

some days it seems like it is their mission to trip me up, i walk around the garden in slow motion trying to avoid them

Oh god yes. I kick Charlie all the time (obviously it's an accident!). If I'm getting his supper ready, he races around my feet so I can't move without it. He's a git! Thankfully it's not hard, and he doesn't even noticed. Even after I've done it, he still hangs around my feet at food time!

I've sent Carlton spinning like Bambi on ice across laminate flooring several times :oops: I get serious foot flicking in return!

Well gently rather than kicked over the room I presume?Yes, if they think you have food/treats then they can get underfoot,however,having house buns I know to walk slowly and carefully now.:)

I think I kick Smudge or Sora once a day :oops: They get each other hyped up and they dance around my feet when I'm walking to their food bowls with epllets and sometimes they get right in front of my feet as I move them forward :oops::oops::oops: Usually they turn it into a binky though :lol:

I havent kicked my buns but nearly have it ended with me nearly on my face because my legs went in weird positions dodging them!

there was once though when the buns were free range my mum came over and Crystal followed her into the house (her way of saying feed me) my mum never realised so went to shut the door realised the door wouldnt close looked down to see what was stopping it and there was crystal with her 2 front feet getting jammed :( Crystal ended up limping down the steps bless her but was thankfully ok! my mum felt horrible and kept ringing that night to make sure she was ok!

All the time unfortunately, Deej is very good at getting underfoot. I did feel very guilty one day when I picked him up and somehow managed to hit his head on the edge of the coffee table, but he didn't seem to notice at all! Deej does seem very good at not noticing when they've been bumped! :roll::lol:

Yep both me and the OH have done by accident as he keeps getting under our feet and follows us everywhere. I have also nearly fell over because Buttons has been right under my feet and I went to walk off.

Far too often. I always feel really awful whenever I do it though. It's mostly cause Blue races you to the kitchen and insists on sitting behind you when you're at the sink.
I got so fed up of tripping over him while I was cooking (and nearly burning the both of us with pans of boiling water) that I shut him in the utility room with a baby gate.
I'm alway going bum over boobs trying to avoid him too :roll:
I think the worst thing though was when I had a friend and his girlfriend over for dinner. Now, she is (putting this VERY politely-please don't anyone be offended) somewhat on the large side and as she went to sit down Blue jumped up underneath her. Luckily My sis was there and managed to grab him before he was squished :shock:
