    Question Teeny, Tiny, Cute, Fluffy, Cuddly, Adorable, Little Bunny Rabbits



    I found them as I was mowing the lawn. I'm thankful I saw them before I ended seven lives.

    Has anyone cared for your garden variety bunny before (no pun intended)?

    I want to give them a life they wouldn't have had.

    Are they adults or babies? If babies, try to return them to their mama? How can you do this? Hecks if I know....but..
    You can call your local animal welfare society, and they usually have good advice on what to do. I called once for a bird that I found, with a broken wing.

    Oh, and I'm sure you'll get this soon within this thread, so for all the "Fs" everywhere: PICS! (never mind, it's there - I see black stuff with brownish ears)

    Brendan - well done for saving them!!!

    I raised 3 babies bunnies once, after my parent's dog had eaten their littermates. You need to go to a pet food store and get some kitten formula (used to feed orphaned kittens).* The bunnies need to be fed from a dropper. I remember that I had to hold them slightly on their backs and MAKE SURE the milk is getting into them, not just running down their chins - if theyre hungry, they will try to nibble and suck at the dropper.

    Get some food into them as soon as you can or they'll dehydrate and die.

    Keep them in their box, together and make sure they don't get cold at all. Also keep away any others pets or children who might stress them out/handle them roughly/be too loud. Baby bunnies are fragile.

    *I think I prepared the formula according to instructions on the can but you might want to double check this with Google and a local vet (just call them up, they'll tell you over the phone what you should do).

    Re: what Qre:us said, if their nest is still intact and if you can observe and make sure Momma bunny comes back and attends to them, then returning them to her is the best chance for survival. But if the mower has destroyed the nest, it's doubtful Momma will come back and even if she does, without a nest she and they will be very vulnerable to cold and predators etc. I've returned babies to the nest and it's been fine - Mom bunnies seem to have no problem taking back their babies after humans have been handling them.

    Lastly, many gold stars for saving them. They are cute as hell, and it's so cool when they start to do their teeny tiny awkward little hops around the room. Please keep us updated in this thread!!

    Good luck.

    If you end up keeping them they should be quite tastey and meal size in a few months =^.^=

    Those are adorable, Brendan. I haven't a clue as to how to raise them though. O.o Kangirl sounds like the expert here.

    In the outdoors, rabbits bury their young during the day, and uncover them only to feed at night. My uncle raises rabbits, has a pen with at least 100 at any given time. The young are always buried till they're old enough to venture out on their own.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Hmm, they're cute as hell. Too bad having both cats and bunnies is impractical...
