Hey everyone.

It’s April!

How are you doing?

Nope. Don’t answer that!

Nevertheless, I hope you’re all well?

It’s been a while since I wrote you on this here blog, but I’ve been working at home and using my spare time in our organic garden.

I love gardening, so I’m obsessed with growing as much food as we can.

I’m obsessed with gardening, but I was all aches & pains!

My last post was on a coronavirus vaccination guide for Expat Berliners.

If you’re absolutely against the coronavirus vaccine, don’t read it!

However, if you live in Berlin and would like more information about how to get vaccinated, here’s what to do and a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) – Click here!

So obviously, this is a fun post but if you think I’m joking.

I’m really not!

This actually happened.

Last summer!

I know. Right!

So here’s the story …

When a strange rabbit came to live in our garden – goodness me. No! – Part 1

So sometime in August, I was minding my own business and merely looking through the garden window as you do, when I saw what I thought to be a dog.

A small dog sprinting across our lawn.

A dog!

Well, that’s wrong ‘cos even though we love dogs, my husband doesn’t!

So we don’t have dogs at home.

What we do have, are cats.

Two of ’em!

So a dog running across our lawn isn’t an option.

On closer inspection, I found out that it wasn’t a dog.

It was in fact, a cute fluffy rabbit!

A rabbit I tell you.

In our garden!

In Berlin!

Now what would a rabbit be doing on our lawn?

Making itself at home, munching on our vegetable garden apparently, that’s what!

Well, we can’t have that ‘cos

Remember what I said earlier.

We have cats!

Cats that would delight in “playing” with a very small rabbit!

I first saw it about 8:30 in the morning and it seemed to disappear thereafter.

But no.

At about 7:30 in the evening, it came back again!

We weren’t really sure what to do as we didn’t want a blood bath on our hands.

Or even worse.

A fox lurking through the garden!

Yep.

I might live in Germany’s capital city, but our leafy suburb of Prenzlauerberg / Pankow, has foxes!

We called the local Animal Shelter who told us to keep an eye on it, and if we still saw it by the weekend, we should call again!

We were extremely worried and concerned that “something might happen,” so we alerted our neighbours.

We put notices up on Facebook, Twitter, and all my social media channels, looking for the owner of a lost rabbit!

We even put a poster in the local neighbourhood newspaper, but to no avail.

There was no response.

Nothing.

Nada.

Was there no child in tears and anguish, longing for their missing pet?

Apparently not!

And worse, because of the pandemic, the Berlin Animal Shelter couldn’t in fact, take the rabbit, neither could the local farmyard in Prenzlauerberg!

Oh dear.

So what happened next?

Well, that rabbit was in and out of our garden for almost four weeks!

Until at last, somebody came to claim it.

A person that lived just three gardens down!

And how come they hadn’t seen all our anguish requests of ownership?

Why indeed?

‘Cos they’d been on holiday!

?!#*?!!

Anyhoo, the rabbit went back to its rightful owner, and we could finally “relax” knowing that our cats could roam freely.

And even though we’re in the middle of a global pandemic.

Life was good.

Phew!
