Question about English (US)

In the story of "Winnie the Pooh",

Pooh: "Would you mind if I joined you?"
Rabbit: "Why not?"

We usually use "Why not?" like this,

"Let's take a break"
"Why not?"

thus, "why not" means agreeing to someone's suggestion.

Why Rabbit said "Why not"?
I think this response means Rabbit mind Pooh's joining but in fact he means "No problem".
