What do you always find under the bed? [More:]
A dust bunny, of course!

I thought this was a serious question, and was about to say "massive dust bunnies". Cos that's what we have.

A real dust bunny would be more grey than brown. When I find something brown and fuzzy under my bed, I call Hazardous Waste Removal (not that I ever have).

We don't have an "under the bed," just box springs on a floor...

... which suits me fine. Under the bed is SCARY MONSTER TERRITORY. No, really: that photo, which I can see is objectively adorable, kinda gives me the creeps.

I never, ever hear the phrase "dust bunnies" without my brain, all unbidden, echoing back the phrase "slut's wool."

So now you made me find out about slut's wool!

My dog, who crawls in there and then gets stuck. We always know she's there, because there are these pathetic soft howly noises coming from under the bed. I actually think she could get out if she wanted (it's a platform bed, with good clearance). But she prefers the attention of someone diving under the bed after her, and winkling her out ... :-)

Perhaps it's a dog thing, but our previous dog used to do this as well. In a house where we had a dismantled spare bed stored under our bed. He would get stuck between the spars of wood and it would take ages to lift the bed and guide him out. Next week, we'd find him wedged in exactly the same space. Dog logic.

If my dust bunnies were that cute, I'd feel less guilty about my lack of vacuuming.

Dust bunnies that look like tiny versions of this troublemaker.

D'awww - I want a Wilson!

And the info about "slut's wool" was really interesting. Thanks, Elsa and OR!

No under the bed here, either; but I still don't ever let a hand hang over the edge....

Eeeew. Slimy.
OW! Pointy!

No feet hanging off either. And all closet doors must be closed!

Dust bunny!

The blond cocker spaniel keeps his ball collection under the bed. So he's always dashing under there and coming back out, sometimes even naps down there with his hoard.

We boarded up the sides of the bed so the bunny can't get under there where we can't get him out. It used to be bunny, hair, a magazine or two, maybe a sock, and some stray bunny poops. Now it is nada.
