However, it is difficult to blame Hazel for not siding with Fiver this time. Unlike back in their home warren, where many of the rabbits were unhappy to begin with, this time everyone except Fiver is very content. Although the rabbits who live in the warren seem strange and are given to odd habits, such as Cowslip's laughter, they treat Hazel's group with extreme hospitality. Everyone eats well and lives comfortably, which makes it much more difficult to believe that something is wrong. Fiver sticks with his convictions, and Hazel almost always trusts him, but this time he is being asked to give up the best living conditions they have ever encountered based only upon his brother's hunch that something is wrong. Furthermore, Fiver does not even know exactly what it is that is wrong. Hazel and the other rabbits know that something is not right, but so many other things are right that they are unwilling to listen to Fiver.

The rabbits act very much like people again here in that they are willing to look past many things that would normally trouble them because they feel that they are living well. The rabbits who live in the warren demonstrate many strange traits that Hazel's group has never seen before, but those traits seem forgivable when everyone spends the day eating carrots with seemingly no dangers to worry about. Hazel and the others are not concerned by whatever it is that troubles Fiver and is likely the cause of the strangeness of the warren, as it cannot be seen and therefore does not seem to them to exist. The rabbits trust Fiver when he gives them advice about how to get away from situations in which they do not want to be, but they are much less receptive when he suggests that good food and hospitality should be forsaken in order to struggle again through the wilderness.
