Oh my bunnies!!

Yesterday was a very exciting day for my kids! I was in the house cleaning when all of sudden the kids came running through the house like a herd of elephants and shouting, "baby bunnies, baby bunnies, we saved them!"  They found them in our neighbors back yard and their dogs were trying to kill them.  They were all excited... can we keep them, of course were the next words out of their mouth.  So we had 4 baby bunnies they were so tiny! Their eyes weren't even opened yet.

 I didn't have a clue as to how to care for them, so we drove up to Petsmart only to find out that they were extremely hard to take care of and they could even die from a heart attack. We also learned that they drink cats milk, so we bought that and a tiny bottle.  Before we went home I stopped by the ER Vet and asked them a few questions and they said the same thing about how hard they are to take care of.  They gave me a number for a lady that rehabilitates wild animals, I had then decided to call her in the morning. 

 When we got home we tried feeding them, but they just weren't getting enough. Anyway to shorten the story, my husband took them to her and she had said that they were so tiny that they were going to need to be fed by a tube, so glad she took them and I really hope they make it. My daughter misses them so much already.  They were so cute!!  I'm sure it won't be long until they come bringing some other kind of animals home!  Not the first time and certainly not the last, lol.


  1. I'm so glad that you were able to find the bunnies some place safe so that they will have a chance to live. Your kids will remember the experience forever and they learned first hand what it means to be unselfish. Great post!
