We had a bunny running free around the homestead. She didn't like being in a pen and would come up to us at feeding time to eat then go under my soap shop to sleep. A few days ago our hired hand caught her and put her back in the pen. What we didn't know is the neighbors rabbit that comes down to visit each day was a male and there were baby bunnies under my soap shop. Baby Kitty found the first baby bunny and sat with it keeping it from going back under the shop until we saw and picked it up. We brought it inside and I gave it a bottle. A few minutes later and Baby Kitty was sitting with another. This happened 8 times. We now have eight beautiful baby bunnies. The babies were coming out because they were hungry. Momma bunny since being in the pen and not nursing no longer had any milk for them. They took a bottle for a couple of days but now don't want it and are busy eating rabbit food, apples, carrots, hay and drinking lots of water. These are the cutest we have had here at the homestead. The colors are so different.
