Bunny Update

Sadly, we lost 2 of our bunnies. One sometime Tuesday night, and the other just this morning. The other 2 were doing ok, but not eating a whole lot, and I was afraid I might lose them too. We decided it would be best to take them to the animal shelter. They got in contact with a lady who takes in all sorts of animal babies. She rehabilitates them, and has 50 acres to release them on when they are ready. I left them with the formula I made, and Amanda left a yellow stuffed bunny for them to cuddle with. The kids wanted to keep them for pets, but they said wild rabbits almost always die in captivity, so I think we did the best thing letting them go.

After we left the shelter, we went to the library to do schoolwork, but there was a magic show going on, so we watched that instead. Now we are back home for lunch and to do a little school and house work before we head over to my in-laws for dinner. Some cousins of Sam's are down from California, and I've never met them. So, not exactly what I had planned for the day, but life happens. I'll see you later!

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of 2 of your bunnies, but I know you did the right thing. Helping wild animals is so hard to do... I'm glad the magic show was going on at the library - hopefully it took your minds off things for a while. Enjoy your dinner tonight, and I'll check back soon. Hugs to you and your kids!

Carrie, sorry to hear about lossing 2 of them, but they might have already been hurt inside. I've tried raising wild bunnies that little and it is really hard. You didi the right thing.
