While cutting our grass my husband disturbed a pile of bunnies who were apparently sunbathing on our berm in our backyard. Maybe I should start with my kids love animals. So, when these babies when running all over our yard and one ended up going in the street my older daughter, Meg was blocking the baby so a car would not hit it. We got a net and captured the bunnies and put them back in their little nest. We told the kids under no circumstance do you touch or pick them. Couple hours later my husband and I return to the girls holding the babies in our backyard with some neighbor kids and they each are holding one being very careful. Ally told me she had named them after the musical she was just in (Adventures of Beatrix Potter). Mopsy, Flopsy, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit. Each baby as they showed me had a distinct feature, one had a white fur line on its forehead, one had one not yet open, etc.. So we talked again about how we can't hold them as their momma may not want to take care of them if they have human scent. But, no matter what I said they couldn't resist it. So, this is Mopsy with Ally. They asked us that night that if the momma doesn't come back to them then it is meant that we need to take them in as our own pets. Yeah that got a big "NO" and a "And who will be the one that ends up taking care of them? ME". Every day they go out to check the nest and see if they are there. But they are not. They must have moved after all the bunny handling. Thankfully no bunnies were hurt in this story....
