All the pets I have steal food, especially my mummy bunny. Since she gave birth to her litter almost three months ago now she has become obsessed by food.

Her is a photo of two of her babies stealing the hay from the packet. Iwas cleaning their hutch and left the room for only a second, when I returned I caught them red pawed eating.

What about your pets, are they guilty of this too?

My rabbits will help themselves by crawling into grocerysacks of veggies I put down when I come home from the store. It's so cute to see the back half of a bunny sticking out of a paper bag.

Yep!! The cats steal the veggies for the bun's!!!

The buns are pretty good about not stealing, but I bet if they knew how, they would!! :)

Yep thats one of Hannah's bad and hard to stop habits. It was our fault though, when she was little she would play like mission impossible and sneak around the couch and tables and then steal a snack. We thought it was cute for awhile so she thinks she can get away with it.

But one day my sister made a big chicken sandwich and put it on the table and turn around to get a drink and when she went back to the table her sandwich was gone, she found Hannah down under my bed with an almost eaten sandwich.. thats when we said it had to be stopped :rolleyes:

We leave way more food where the dogs can get it then we should, and they never tried to get it...until Sadie stole a T-bone steak off the stove this week!!! Ya leave a dog alone for 20 min...

With their own food, Cincy tried to steal bites out of Sadie's bowl while she is still eating from her own. Then when Sadi finishes, she steals from Cincy.

Left to go shower...came out and someone (no names but she goes by Sophie ;) ) had OPENED her bag of food...

"I SWEAR Mom! It opened itself!!!"

"I dihn't duh ith..." (note the piece of hay sticking out of her mouth)

Technically, I guess, it's not stealing...it IS her food afterall...lol

LOL, Tonya... that is tooo funny!!! I just love your sweet Sophie Bunny!:) ;)

No, Sadie knows way better than that... we taught her not to steal food, when she was a puppy!:)

Not only do my kids steal but they don't have the decency to be sneaky. I offered my buns some strawberries. They didn't want it. I said ok, maybe this won't be one of the fruits they like. So I took the carton and sat on the floor to watch tv. I went to get something to drink and I came back and they both had been in the strawberries. They had pink faces. I wished I had a camera at the time.

Those pictures are really sweet.

The cats steal whatever they can get their paws on. They stick their paws into our food as if that's how they're supposed to get their meals together.

The dog knows better and simply waits with her head on the table and very sad eyes. Hard to ignore those sad puppy eyes and give her nothing!

Like you Zippy, rabbits are checky when it comes to food.

Here is Mum Bunny who always has her face in a bowl of food.

This was taken when the babies where only two weeks old.

First time they ate solids, aren't they cute!

Can't believe that was three months ago!:(

Those babies are soooo cute!

I keep the cat's food in the top shelf of my clothes closet and accidently closed Cassy in the closet a couple weeks back. :eek: You know where this story's going, right? Okay, somehow he gets on the shelf and eats his way into the bottom of the bag of dry food and for the last two weeks I get a small shower of kibble everytime I remove something from the closet. :rolleyes:

Here is another cute bunny baby photo.

Does any one else have any cute picture? This one was taken the first time I cleaned out the natural nest. This was the nest they where born in and it was becoming rather smelly. The vet suggested after a few weeks to clean it out.

I think that the expressions on their little faces tells the story that they where not happy about it.

Zippy, Sophie is lovely. I also have a black rabbit.
