My friend Ferne reminded me that I haven’t posted about the bunnies lately – thanks for the reminder Ferne!
We have more bunnies. Our neighbors called a few weeks ago and said that they were rescuing some baby bunnies that had been separated from their mother by someone who traps the rabbits and takes them far away and releases them. This jerk (I wrote dumbshit but took it out) took a female rabbit 10 miles away and a few days later found out that there was a litter. She just figured on letting them die.
My neighbor Jean decided otherwise.
Jena called Tom and I to ask what the baby bunnies needed to survive. We gave her some supplies, lots of advice and offered to help. Jean kept them for about 5 weeks and then ran out of room and time (travel away from home) so we took them in. Tom build a pen in the back yard, away from the roof construction, gave them an old truck canopy to hide under, and they have been in bunny heaven ever since! Bunnies LOVE dandilions and rasberry leaves and they have been pigging out on that plus pellet food, frolicking and playing, hiding and sleeping.
Jean still visits them and brings them treats 🙂 There are three white ones and one tan one.
And, such a happy ending, I recently bumped into my two favorite tan bunnies on 4th Avenue as I walked to work – it was such a treat to see them again because I had not seen them for 3 weeks and I was afraid that they’d been trapped or killed AND last night my favorite black bunny (he’s very old and not healthy) stopped by for some carrots and pellets! What a great day.
Oh, and the roof is DONE!
