That's from Veggie Tales if you didn't recognize it. So last Sunday afternoon, Hannah comes in from outside and says, "Mom, I need to show you something!" And Biscuit had been rooting around in our garden. When they went to investigate what she was so excited about, this is what they found:
Oh my goodness! Little bunnies!! But Biscuit had already gotten her teeth around three of them. There were four, and one died. But the other three, I put ointment on their wounds, and we gently put them
back in the nest.
Unbelievably, the mommy bunny had made a nest amongst our raspberry bushes! I never can understand why any birds or animals make nests in our yard full of animals and children, but they do.
Here is one only a few days later. We cannot believe how quickly they grow! They appear to have been only a day or two old when Biscuit found them. Happily, each morning when I check them, they are even more healthy and feisty. Their bite wounds are all healing up well! We don't have a lot of success with wounded birds and animals around here, so this is really a great success for us.
Tonight when I went to check on them, they were more feisty than ever and cried loudly like a guinea pig. I laughed! I had never heard any sound out of a bunny like that, especially such a tiny bunny! But this bunny was definitely protesting being disturbed. So, I think they will be all right. And it has only been four days since we found them! Now, check back in a few weeks when I am complaining that "something" is eating all the stuff in my garden!
