Rabbit wakes up his owners by sprinting on their heads

This is the hilarious moment a sleeping couple got a 6am wake-up call – from their pet rabbit.

Footage shows two-year-old Jeremy running manic laps of his owners’ bedroom while leaping over their bed in Ipswich, Suffolk.

During his enthusiastic run, the rescue rabbit hops about on their heads and bumps into the couple’s other rabbit who is happily snoozing nearby.

Richard Thompson, 34, and his fiancee, Kimberly Joanne, 27, had hoped to enjoy another two hours’ of sleep before getting up.

But mischievous Jeremy had other ideas. 

As the energetic rabbit runs about, Richard can be heard giggling while Kim – her head buried under the covers – says ‘He’s such a p***k’.   

Richard replies: ‘But I love him’.

The couple share their home with four indoor rabbits and four indoor cats. 

‘Jeremy doesn’t normally go quite so mental at night, or I would have shut him out by now, but the night before he woke me up washing my hair at 05:30, by licking it,’ said Richard.

‘They actually live in one of the other bedrooms and do get shut in there, but we were letting them out when we were there to supervise them so they came to us for food. 

‘After a while they were so well behaved I suggested we leave them out all night. 

‘Kim was worried we’d roll over in the night and squish them or something, but now they are free roaming upstairs.’

IT developer Richard has CCTV cameras throughout the house for security reasons, but also to check on the cats when he and Kim, a nurse, go away. 

The video was posted on Facebook, where it was shared almost 33,000 times.

And social media users were quick to share their thoughts on the hilarious clip.
