the rabbit becomes excessively playful in a house. after tea (she liked hers weak with plenty of sugar) she would start some game or other. Catch-if-you-can was a favorite of hers, and she developed a hide-and-seek which always amazed us. She would run and hide under the furniture, but if you were too long in finding her, she would stamp her back feet as a clue to her whereabouts. Presently her whiskers would emerge, victorious and triumphant, from under the sofa or round the leg of the old arm chair.
