  1. Are you the one who rescued them, Katie? Good job to you or whomever it was!

    In my experience, how a person treats animals is an excellent test of his or her moral character. No need to be a vegan or anything like that, but people who will go out of their way to avoid allowing an animal to suffer (even when doing something like hunting for deer meat) are almost invariably decent people; those who are indifferent to animal suffering are almost invariably bad people, even if they seem nice on the surface. And people who are deliberately cruel to animals are always the scum of the earth.

  2. These little guys were treading water in their nest hole.
    Scooped the water out then put em back.

  3. Looks like a lot of bottle feeding for a while with little sleep. We had no bottle baby lambs this year (Yeah) 🙂

    1. We’ve done the the eye dropper feeding several times and learned our lesson. These bunnies went back in their nest for mother rabbit to care for them. Just had them out till we scooped the water from the nest, then returned them.

  4. I had never encountered a bunny nest until this year when I ran over one in my back yard. One little bunny was flailing on the ground, and I thought I had hit him with my mower. Thank goodness, no. I found the nest and put him back in. We marked the hole so I wouldn’t hit it again. Then I saw mamma come back, and she wouldn’t get right up to the nest. She kept flinching and jumping backwards. I thought, now I’ve done it-she won’t go to them because I messed with the nest. Next thing I knew, she was flailing through the air fighting with a 2 1/2 foot snake. She won. Yay..

  5. OH my goodness Katie! I’ve never encountered bunnies this little! So precious! Many years ago I was planting snapdragons in my garden, and a half dozen of baby bunnies came running out of a hole in the ground. I felt so guilty for running them out of their nest. I tried to get them back to their home unsuccessfully. I still feel bad to this day.

  6. I have at least three generations of rabbits that have been raised on my veggie scraps.

    I feed them because my dog likes chasing them. His futile attempts to keep us “rabbit free” gives him something to do, and the rabbits tease him because they like being chased. It starts to look like a Bugs Bunny cartoon around here.
