Well since it had warmed up yesterday a bit and wasnt too cold this morning I went out and locked momma bunny out so that I could steal her babies. I pulled several out, then several more. Geez...I'd thought she only had a few (4-5) in there but her nest was decieving. She had eight little bunnies in there, all wonderfully warm, fed, furry, and happy.
They're so cute too! I had expected one or two to look like "dad" with his beautiful white coat and soft orange spots but we have four! I had also thought that the majority would look like mom and just be a bland soft grey. This is what we really have:Four like Peter, one grey and brown marbled, one black and brown tiger striped, one jet black, and one black and brown marbled
How on earth am I supposed to turn something sooo cute into meat?? (okay...not getting attached not getting attached)
In other news...Ellie still has not had her kids (she was due on Monday) but there's hope on the horizon...she is "bagging up" really bad today and I can no longer feel her tail ligaments. Maybe in the next 12 hours??? Hopefully....
