Bunny Update!

Here's a little update on the bunnies...there are 5! The Momma moved them this week...a whole 2 feet north of their birth location!!! Still in the middle of the lawn, next to the dog pen. They are not under the the clothes line anymore, but beside it. LOL!!! The Momma Bunny has been spotted tending to her young, and they are growing rapidly. I find it interesting that the only protection these babies have is the taller grass around them. Nothing over the top to shelter them from the daily rain we have been having.

Oh how sad they are getting rained on.

Do you have any cats in the neighborhood? I'm afraid if the rain don't get them a cat will.

This is so precious. I hope they grow and can hop away quickly. They seem too vulnerable in this location, and I know you don't want to disturb them. Keep us posted...

maybe mommy bunny is hoping that your dog will protect them. They are so cute!

Donna said...

Oh, my, they do look so vulnerable. You must not have hawks around your area. I hope they grow and can all get away safely.

I've never seen a baby bunny before Conni. I am such a city slicker kind of girl. lol I hope they make it. Seems like hawks and owls would grab them up. I'll keep checking for the "cute" pictuers. :o)
