Update: Baby Bunnies

A friend’s dog found a nest of baby bunnies.

We read that wild buns raised in captivity rarely survive.  Unfortunately we experienced that first hand, as Sweetie and Carrot only made it 5 days.

Boingo, however, made the transition from “milk” (KRM) to solid foods.  By Day 6, during an excursion out to the back yard, Boingo hopped thru a gap in the fence to our neighbor’s yard.  By Day 7, it was clear that the bunny was aware he didn’t belong with us, or in his box home!  So, today was Release Day.  We brought Boingo back to the friend’s house where lots of grown bunnies reside in the briars.

For a week there I felt like a father of three babies all over again.  I think we’ll stick to one pet in the future.
