Blackie wants to cross a gulf

Poor Blackie! We have always known that he is the...erm...less agile of the two rabbits, so this scene isn't a surprise at all. But poor Blackie! 

The rabbits love their alfalfa hay but they aren't allowed too much of it, so I put the hay on a high place, not expecting the rabbits to be able to get there. Whitty the clever girl managed to leap from the top of their cage unto the food bin, as you can see in the picture.  She was happily nibbling the hay, but alas, Blackie just couldn't join her, much as he wanted to do so. 

See how the poor boy cranes his neck, "Hm...I wonder how I can get there. I want the alfalfa hay too! Come on Whitty, pass some over."

So at last, Blackie gave up and contents himself with the crumbs from Whitty's feast.
