Q: Why do rabbits thump their back feet?

The other ladies are correct. It is a communication tool, just like the squirrels stomping and chattering, they are sending a warning or saying hey come here I need backup. But it does take on a different meaning for pet rabbits; they are letting you know they are excited or trying to get your attention. It is fun to watch though, isn't it ;)
