A NEWBIE!!!

Since my last post, there has been a new addition to our little family! Meet Mini-B, another baby cottontail rabbit that Taffy brought me. Mini-B is about 8 days old in this photo:















i decided on Mini-B as a name after i took this photo:














Mini-B is much smaller than Babuh was, at the same age, but you can sure see how Babuh has grown! When i took this pic, i had just given Babuh a couple of wedges of apple for a treat and totally forgot about it. It was SO CUTE to see Mini-B trying to chew on it ~ he would pick it up and move it all around, and it's almost as big as HIM! lol

On a not-so-funny note, that was a BIG mistake on my part. i'm afraid that whatever he did get from it (juice and maybe some small pieces of the apple) gave him an upset stomach, so i spent a LOT of time giving him tummy massages until he was back to normal. For a baby as young as he is, common gas is a life-threatening condition because it could very easily lead to Stasis.

Now that his eyes are open, i am introducing some different hays (Orchard Grass, Meadow Mix and Coastal), along with an alfalfa cube and some pellets. He also needs access to water, now, so we've hung a bottle on his cage door. Although his little poops were pretty liquidy while i fed him only Pet milk with a drop of Karo Corn Syrup in it, now that he's eating solid food, his poops are becoming formed and solid, and look like little pieces of ground pepper.

More in a day or two ~

    Hey Wendy,
    I hope you don't mind if I write on your blog. I didn't know how else to reach you. We've all missed you on Petshub. We haven't seen you around in quite some time. We're wondering if everything is okay with you & the furry family.
    Hope to hear from you soon!
