ALL BUNNIES ALL THE TIME

The weather has kept me inside this week. The weather and my agoraphobia. Just me and the bunnies. Seventeen in the house and nineteen outside. It's kinda fun, though, having so many living things in the house. Spiders don't count. (Except to eight, Sweetie says.)

Most everybody is just fine. Harry is slowly improving. His appetite is good and he's running around.


I worry about Precious' runt - at two ounces he's half the size of her other kits and he can't compete for titty against the bigger ones. I have been giving him separate nipple time and today I began supplementing his diet with newborn kitten formula.



Kelly Bob's children, on the other hand, are thriving. The pretty brown one weighs in at 6 ounces!



Their eyes should be open by the Sunday, and their little ears will be standing up 2 or 3 days after that.

I had to look at that first bit 3 times before I realized that you had written "agoraphobia"... "angoraphobia" is what I suffer from, not you!
And I am so happy that you use a scale! IMHO, there is no good livestock management possible without one. You impress me more all the time.

Aww, bunnies. I am loving watching them grow!
