Baby Bunnies!


Things have been really busy around here.....

Mom and Dad both volunteer for Rabbit Rescue Inc. and recently got word of a hoarding situation where a lady released a bunch of rabbits on the front lawn of her condo.  Many of our volunteers went out to help round them up and we were able to rescue all 16 of them!  Two of them were wee babies but unfortunately a third was found dead.  They were very skinny - momma probably didn't survive out there for long and either got hit by a car or attacked by a predator.  Luckily we got there soon enough to save the two babies that survived.  Here is a picture of how small they were when they were first rescued.....

The babies went to a friend of ours who is a great foster mom!  She nursed them around the clock and made sure their bellies were nice and full.  Thankfully they gained weight fast and are well on their way to growing up to be big, strong bunnies!  The video above is of the little grey one (boy) running through their play tunnel.  They are so full of energy!

Our friend also took in a female bunny.  Much to her surprise, a few days later, she found a nest with four babies!  Oh my goodness, imagine if she wasn't rescued in time - she would have given birth out on the streets and her babies would not have made it.  Thanks to the safe and secure environment she is now in, Momma Bunny has been nursing the babies and taking very good care of them!


It makes me sad to know that someone abandoned these bunnies.  I wish all bunnies could live the kind of life that Miss Binks and I live, in a cozy house with people who love them, who feed them and care for them.  Every bunny (and every pet) deserves the best life possible. 

Sadly, all of the shelters and rescues are full but Mom's friend is going to make sure that all of these babies and Momma Bunny find really good homes.  They all may have had a rough start in life, but we are all going to work together to make sure they have happy endings.
