Last night, we hosted 3 little baby bunnies that our friend’s bunny had. One of them will soon be coming to us as a permanent home. (Her boa also had 8 eggs, so it must be the water. Yeah, that’s it.) These are a mix of Dwarf Hotot and Holland Lop, so they’re not going to be very big. They were the cutest little things, running around and around. They’re like little powder puffs, flying up and down the hallway. We built a hay tower, and they seemed to enjoy just climbing in it.

The night was going wonderfully until one of them looked at Cassi the wrong way, and all of a sudden, one of the bunnies found a chunk out of her side. :( A trip to the vet this morning showed all was well but said bunny is now on antibiotics for a bit. We also found a huge chunk of Ben’s fur, like Cassi had chewed on him as well, but there doesn’t seem to be any animosity between the two (nor can we find evidence of chew, so it may just be the last of his shed).

Ben was just fine with the bunny babies, in fact, he even chinned a couple of them. The only time there was a problem was when one of the little ones stepped on “his” bath mat, and he wasn’t sure he was going to stand for that. A bit of intervention and everything was fine though. When I brought the babies back home to Mama, there was a very aggressive and thorough chinning of the bunnies. I thought Mama was going to attack them, she was so aggressively claiming them….

And by babies, I mean 6 week old bunnies. Adorable. Just adorable.
