A Different Breed of Bunny Riddle

We are bunnies,
but we haven't long ears,
or wiggly noses,
though we've been known to
twitch your nose.

Our fluff is not restricted
to our tail,
we wear it head to toe.

We're shy and quiet,
hiding under beds,
behind dressers,
in corners.

Hopping about on the
wake of your
broom's swoosh
is our favorite sport -
unless you pull out
the vacuum
and we get
caged.

Who are we?

  1. Have to say I love bunnies in general but not the dust bunnies under my bed. Love the whimsical tone in this one, Bridget. Kids love a good riddle :).

  3. The elementary schoolers I work with love poetry riddles. This is adorable. I can just picture them (because we are home to such bunnies) running from the vacuum.

    1. Thank you, Laura! Yes, we are hosting several of this breed of bunnies in our house, too...though I think the vacuum is coming out this weekend.
