    B2E8614A-CBD0-4113-90C0-A3286930A0FA.jpeg Look what my landscaper mowed over!! Lol. I had to catch them all and put them back. The mom came back 2-3nights then they left the nest. There was one kit who didn’t leave for 2 weeks or so but thank goodness my dog didn’t eat them or get decapitated by the landscaper.

    They were so cute, so much better to catch them to put them back rather than picking up 5 tiny dead bodies like last time, thanks to jerrrrrr!

    So cute! Glad they live another day, to feed a hawk or something, probably! Griffin almost dislocated my arm last night trying to take off after one in our yard. It always hangs out in the same spot, and one of these days when he's off leash, he's gonna get it.!

    Nothing cuter than a baby bunny…

    My Annie when she was a 8 month old pup ran over a nest of young babies while chasing her ball. Foolish mama rabbit left them in a slight depression in the middle of my yard. My pup was "wow! live squeaky toys!" and grabbed them up. Not much I could do, she'd bitten all of them in short order. At least she let me take them away when dead and put them over the fence for the fox to take that night.

    Poor bunnies but I guess that is why they reproduce so fast. Yours are lucky they fared better.

    Hey you! Glad to see you posting again. Hope all has been well with you and your family with all the chaos lately.

    Oh man, I’ve picked up many dead baby bunny bodies too since my Jer has been here, lol. These were lucky. I always check but this time the mama didn’t use dead grass like they usually do. She put live grass over the babies so I had no idea until landscaper ran them over and the grass blew off. Luckily it was in an area where he doesn’t go. Whew-

    They were so danggggg cute! My husband wanted to actually keep one but I said no. That’s just a really bad, bad idea! This is also the same guy who glares at me like I’m cheating on him when I look at dog photos on the net. Hahaha but a bunny is fine? Like he wants more animals?!??!

    Stay safe!! And sane! :)

    Yeah my life's been crazy this last yr. And covid has changed the world. I'm hoping to take things easier next yr and spent more time with Annie just hanging out in the back yard. It's hard to believe she'll be 6 yrs old in the spring. How time flies…

    You were right, you don't want to keep a baby wild rabbit. Cute as they are, they are wild animals and don't make very good pets.

    Here's a link (I hope!) to an old story written by Ernest Thompson Seton in the 1890s about a young cottontail rabbit, the original old book had wonderful drawings by the author illustrating the story.

    Raggylug the story of a Cottontail rabbit is from Seton's classic book Wild Animals I have Known --

    Not many folks have heard of Seton but he was well known in his day and wrote many fine animal stories.
