I have a little story to shall with you all. From this morning..
It all started around 9:00AM, I woke up. Blinked and my eye hurt. This has happened before, My eye swells up. Last time we didn't know what caused it really. It just went away. So we made an appointment for today(at 1:30) because Eye-swelling can be a symptom of a disease that I might have but they don't know yet.
Anyway, So I get up and start making toaster pastries when I hear this sad little yelping squeaking coming from outside the house. I quietly mumble to myself. "Oh *bleep*" and I see as I had suspected, My 2 year old Cat creature with something brown and furry in his mouth.
Not a suprise, he does this every once and awhile. Usually they end up in the house dead or something.
So In an attempt to stop my Proud hunter from killing the creature I open the back door. Success! He dropped the furry thing. So I walk closer, expecting to see a fat field mouse or shrew..
It was a baby bunny. So I pause, I had forgotten to bring a towel in case. So I picked it up. He/she/it was so soft, I held it to my chest and approached the back door. I turn the knob and mumble once again "Oh *Bleep*" I had forgotten to unlock the door. So I walk around to the front of the house hoping my mom had left it unlocked when she left for work...
To My dismay..She hadn't. SO I proceeded to knock on my dads window half yelling..
"Dad, I locked my self out and I have a baby Bunny in my hand, I will explain when Im inside"
So, Now I have a small baby rabbit. He/she/it is a little shaken up and has a gash on his/her/its leg. But I think It will be okay, we picked up some goats milk(which we were told is good) and a dropper thingy.
His ears are perked up and his Eyes are open. But I wanted to share my adventure for the day. Now we've looked in the phone book and there are no rehabilitators in our area. So we are going to look after him/her/it ourselves. Because he is too young to survive on his own and we don't know where his mamma is, and he is well enough to where he has a pretty good chance of surviving in our house and he won't just keel over.. If anyone has raised bunnies before, any tips would be helpful.
I think its a she, but Im not sure yet...
