Surprise!!

Unplanned pregnancy?!?!?  
Holy Hell, when did that happen?
MJ has been hiding something behind that door to nowhere...
I had no idea!
Floki did jump into her hutch one day while I was cleaning, but I grabbed him up out of there toute suite (french Canadian for 'right away'). Apparently, 3 seconds was just enough time to slip her his carrot for him to breed her because, honestly, that's literally all the time he had before I hauled his horny little bunny butt back to his own hutch.
Rabbit ovulation is induced by copulation; I think this pretty much explains why only a single kit was produced. She looks to be between 2-3 weeks old as her eyelids are only just starting to part, & she's the fattest wee bunnis ever.
To top it off, while I was still shaking my head, Boots' girlfriend, Cleats (she plays competitive rugby), NAMED the bunnis! Oh boy, I don't name growers, so I guess she's a keeper now.
A belated
Welcome to the 4Shoes, little Frost!
No Manic MinPin, not for you. Not even a little bit.

  2. Oh, the joy I would feel to find an unexpected baby bunny, but I know your story is probably different. From time to time, I have nightmares in which I go into an attic or a basement of my old childhood home and discover a bunch of pets I forgot about, and they all bred. I'm always baffled over how they lived so long without me feeding them. There are bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, and mice everywhere. I'm overjoyed to find them, but also horribly guilty for forgetting to take care of them. Weird dream to have, huh? Anyway, your story reminds me of those dream/nightmares.

    1. Since Cleats named her, I think Frost will be staying long term. All the bunnises are sweet, but Frost is the fattest little kit I think I've ever had!

  5. That bunny is seriously cute. I didn't realize that bunnies could be so quick on the draw, so to speak. :)

    1. I think 'quick like a bunny' isn't about how fast they hop. ;-)

    1. They sure taught ME a new lesson: Don't like the buck hop casually around the room when I'm cleaning hutches. hehe

  7. Congratulations on this new addition. It is such a cute little bunny. We used to grow rabbits years ago and had quite a big bunch of them at one point.

    1. When she fell out of the nest, I near about had a heart attack! I guess Floki & MJ have a different timetable than I do.
