Bunnies.

We’ve lost 3 of our recent litter due to them getting away from the rest of the litter and getting too cold. This morning, DD found the 3rd still alive. She was scared the bunny was already dead. When I picked it up, it was still alive. S/he would only move her limbs very slowly when touched. I tried holding it against my skin at the bottom of my rib cage but the bunny didn’t make it. She passed after about 20 minutes.

To try to stop the loss, I’m going to double the straw in that pan and run a heater down there at night until it warms up again or until the babies get more fur on them. Hopefully, lesson learned.
