Crazy! Rampaging RABBIT blocks sink with soil after eating the owner’s 12 houseplants and flood the kitchen by turning on the tap
- The rabbit threw houseplants down the sink in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester
- The ground then blocked the plug before the pet named Dorothea turned on the tap
- Owner Pema Ferris, 24, returned home to find that the kitchen floor was completely submerged
- The pet also had to be rushed to the vet after eating a dangerous tomato plant
A mischievous rabbit let his owner run wild after wreaking “absolute havoc” by blocking the sink and flooding the kitchen.
House rabbit Dorothea chewed on 12 houseplants that sat on the sunny windowsill.
But when she got to the good food, she threw the pots into the sink and covered the plug hole with soil before turning on the tap.
Owner Pema Ferris, from Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, returned home to ‘a nightmare’ on May 18.
The 24-year-old said: ‘I just came out of the closet and just came home in absolute devastation.
‘I opened the door and there was water all over the floor, the tap was running and the sink was full of soil – it was a nightmare.
“All the plants that should have been on the windowsill were in the sink, and the rabbit was on the windowsill instead of the plants – it wasn’t something I expected to come home to.”

To make matters worse, the mother-of-one then had to rush the continental giant race Dorothea to the vet after eating poisonous plants
A hilarious photo shows the continental giant Dorothea sheepishly sitting on the kitchen counter where she jumped to chew the potted plants – surrounded by mud, soil and a flooded sink.
The mother-of-one added: ‘At first I was very concerned about the rabbit and the whole destruction of’ oh my god, my kitchen – did the water get into the electricity? Has something been screwed up? ‘
“My other rabbit is the most good rabbit in the world and he lured me into a false sense of security, thinking all rabbits would be so good and then I got Dorothea.”
To make matters worse, the mother-of-one then continental giant Dorothea had to rush to the vet.
The hungry rabbit had not only chewed on a poisonous aloe vera cactus, but had also tucked into a tomato plant – both of which had been placed on the windowsill to keep them out of the rabbits’ reach.
The vegetables from this particular shrub contain a poison called Solanine and, if eaten, can be deadly to rabbits.
The bartender rushed to the out-of-hours vet to have Dorothea checked, and after waiting five hours, he received a clean bill of health.

Mrs. Ferris finally got home at 11:30 pm, where she needed another two hours to clean up
Mrs. Ferris finally got home at 11:30 PM, where it took her another two hours to clean up.
Bartender Ms. Ferris said, ‘The aloe vera and tomato plant can be dangerous to rabbits so I went to have her checked and luckily she was completely fine – no harm had been done.
‘There was water all over the floor and there was a good puddle under the fridge, oven and cupboards – a lot of the things that were in my cupboards were ruined.
‘She’s quite cheeky and mischievous and grows into a really big bunny – she’s normally a good girl so I’m pretty shocked she did this.
She’s now been banned from the kitchen and the rest of my house is already rabbit-proof, so hopefully we won’t have any more accidents.
“But I will certainly not have any more houseplants and for now it will be plastic, I think.”
