Did you know that a baby rabbit is called a kit? Did you know, that rather than having two girl rabbits, I have one boy or buck and one girl rabbit or doe? Do you know where baby rabbits come from? Well, I do! Rather than watching the Weather Channel to see which land mass Hurricane Isaac will hit, I am watching the rabbit hutch on my back porch to see when the kits are born.
A year ago, we had an aging white male rabbit which looked more like Godzilla than a cute little bunny. Shortly after Christmas, George the mammoth bunny, passed away of a drug overdose. After Easter, Remus and Cammie Anne, came to live in my back yard from my brother’s house in Mississippi. Did you know I was a sucker for animals? I have been called Elly May before. In the next few days and weeks, I will have more animals living under one roof than I am sure the city of Huntsville will allow. I am sure the home owner’s association will not be happy.
The moral of the story is to check your rabbits for berries before you take them home. Now, I am going on Craig’s List looking for Bunny Midwives. I am sure how the math goes with rabbits, but it is something like 1 + 1 = 14 or so. Anybody want a rabbit?
Wait! I just figured it out… The rabbits sent me the flowers last week! I did make a big difference in their lives.
