An Edinburgh hotel owner has told of her shock to discover a rabbit - complete with hay, bedding and food - in a guest's shower.
Patricia O'Donnell, who runs the Armadillo guesthouse, believes the family smuggled the rabbit upstairs in a suitcase, reports the Daily Telegraph.
She had entered the room of a family of Chinese tourists to water the flower boxes when she spotted the animal.
She spilt a jug of water all over herself in the shock of the incident, and said it was the strangest thing she had seen in 20 years of running the guesthouse.
"The family - a mum, dad and daughter - checked in and about an hour later went out to visit the castle," said Ms O'Donnell.
"I thought I'd better go and water the window boxes, but when I got to their door there was a 'do not disturb' notice on the handle.
"That was odd because they'd only been there a short time, so I got the jug of water, went into the bathroom and almost died when I saw this rabbit."
Seeing that the grey-coloured animal was shaking and uncomfortable, she called the SSPCA, who attended shortly afterwards.
Ms O'Donnell added: "The mother said that most guesthouses allow animals. Maybe we'd allow dogs or cats but not for somebody to keep a rabbit in the bathroom."
She asked the trio to leave the seven-room guest house, which they did with minimum fuss.
