It seems I spoke too soon when I said that Henry was a good mom. This is a photo of KK feeding the black bunny, the one that she calls Spazz. We lost a bunny, too. The smallest one didn't make it. We still have 3 baby bunnies that we are now hand feeding. They are walking around now, trying to hop. We have about a month of "bottle" feedings until they're able to eat on their own. I am so excited. Can't you tell?

Gaaahhhh! So cute! Painful cute!

They grow up fast. In three days they've got fur already. Are their eyes open yet?

Please please please I beg you, please do not ask my kids if they want one! I don't know if I can resist! I can barely keep up with the two house critters I've already got!!!

Begging me, huh? I just think that every little girl should have a bunny. Just saying. They should have their eyes open in about 2 or 3 more days. Poor Ruby is going crazy, she wants to play with them oh, so badly.

I think baby bunnies look like baby mice for the first week or so. Gah!

ldbug - oh, they're cute alright! That why at one point we had 16! Yup. I've turned into the crazy bunny lady.

cindydianne - They do look a bit like mice. Their tails aren't fluffy at all, and they have big buggy eyes. I can't resist them even when they look like that.
I know, sucker.

Life,
No bunnies here! Son is enough of a handful, babyVog on the way, and I am sure the CAT would love to attempt to eat it as a snack...

camie vog - our cat leaves the bunnies alone. He won't even chase the birds....I guess with a baby on the way and all, you probably have your hands full. How many more days? Will Hubby make it home in time?

i had one kitten i had to feed like that...one. it was overwhelming...i can hardly imagine three...and maybe Henry is just confused as why she should be "mothering" them, since you have thought her a Henry instead of a Henrietta?

They are coming along quiet well. Keep feeding them and call me in a couple of months when supper is done. I’ll bring the barbeque sauce and the beer.

Dilling - We have done this soo many times, it's almost second nature now. It can be time consuming, tho. Henry had a litter before, and she did alright..this time, not so much. maybe we'll have to call her Henrietta from now on.

coffeypot - What would Dr. Amber think of you?! Stop drooling over my baby bunnies!

Life, or Something Like It said...
