...so long as I find them before a certain pair of pups do.
... I was just telling Himself on Sunday that I'd love to have pet rabbits. That afternoon, he gallantly mowed the lawn for me only to find that I already have a little nest of baby cottontail rabbits on the lawn (front yard, out of pups' reach). There are 4 in the nest. Though the top of the nest was lopped off, the wee ones seemed snug and warm, and it was not a very cold day and won't be a cold night. He took a mass of coconut fibers and laid that across them to keep them snug until Mama rabbit returns and hopefully moves them somewhere safer. Their eyes are not open yet, and I counted 4. This was the best shot I could get of them, and I also took the shot with quarter to give you an idea of how teeny they are.
They are so incredibly cute. I hope they make it. I'm feeling rather anxious for the little dears' well-being.
