Rehabbing Bunnies Day 168

If you’re here to read about our rehabilitation of a pair of cottontail bunnies you’ve landed at the end of the story. Please click here to start at the beginning. There are 22 days worth of reports, we had such a fun time raising these bunnies! We owe much of the credit to our raw goat’s milk!

Amazingly, at almost six months of age Bunny Bunny still came for treats when we call. I didn’t get any more pictures of him after this one, but we would still throw treats to him across the fence and he would always run to get them while the other bunnies skittered away. I guess we probably saw him a few more times, but then it started getting cold and he probably found a wife and had some kids and set up housekeeping in a nice warm burrow under the ground.


Rehabbing Wild Bunnies Day 49

Squinty Eyes was always more wary about people and ran off to make his life in the world. But Cutie Pie, who we eventually started to call Bunny Bunny continued to come and visit us.  The property next to us has been empty for all the years we have lived here, and lots of wild cottontail bunnies live next door.

Bunny Bunny loved his carrots, and continued to come when we called “Bunny Bunny” for several more weeks.

There are 22 days of reports about the bunnies. You are at Day 49. We skipped about a week. Click here to read Day 56.

Rehabbing Wild Bunnies Day 27

32 days old

The buns are so tiny, but they are old enough to start learning to be on their own. We have prepared a place where they are safe from our dogs, but they can still explore and learn how to be independent bunnies.

The circle below is one of the bunnies.

There are 22 days of reports on the bunnies. You are on Day 27, we skipped nearly a month. Click here to read Day 49.
