This is Randolph he is our outside pet wild rabbit, I thought i would share a story today. Every summer we get alot of baby rabbits in the yard and on occasion(quite often actually) we find a nest when mowing that has baby's that need caring for, either the mother was hit or the baby's in the nest were and we take them in and raise them to put back in the yard, now if anyone is familiar with wild rabbits you're lucky to get 1/2 the baby's out alive from their own nest so the survival rate is not good when caring for by hand, but we ghet some raised and back out. We have never had a single rabbit to raise by himself, there were always none or more than one survive where they had a buddy. Randolph was an older sole survivor of a lost mom in the shop next door and we had no other babies his age to put him with so he was raised alone in the house, in our bathroom the last year, now while he weas box trained for bathroom he had decided this spring to try to chew his way through the wall, yeah the wall. We have cyotes in the close area and as he was raised around our dogs we were affraid he wouldn't have the caution he needed to be set free, but as he decided to chew through wall we had to do something so we let huim go in the yard and put his box by the back of house, lucky for us he had become addicted to pretzels, yes pretzels(that's whAT HE'S EATING IN 2ND PIC) so that keeps him coming back and around the house. He will follow you to get his fix. Anyway this was something Suzette and i did together and i told hubby i just couldn't do it anymore, so many don't make it and i just can't deal with that anymore so Randolph will probably be our last wild rabbit. It is cool to be out hanging clothes on the line and feel a kick on your leg telling you he wants a fix. Don't know why but felt like sharing the story today. good day to all.  luv and hugs

That is beautiful, and so cute. Maybe Suzette is helping your little furry friends along. She is still caring for them. She needs you to help her. Look for the signs as she might be telling you something. Just a hunch. Love and Hugs.

So nice of you to help the little bunnies. Your story was interesting. I don\'t know anything about rabbits. I agree with Tracey, Suzette is watching over the little rabbits. Hugs & Love lucille

He is a cutie. I love rabbits! My nursie friend here rescued a baby rabbit a few months ago. His back was broken (yes, we talked the ER doc into letting us x-ray him because we don\'t have a vet here) and she took him home. So, she named him Scooter, and has been taking care of him since. She has to express his bladder, because he is a paraplegic and can\'t pee on his own. He pulls himself all over her house. It\'s really cute. Animals just melt my heart, I absolutely love them. Well, and kids too. My husband says I take in every stray that crosses my path, human or animal! love you honey, thanks for the sweet story and pics. Hugs, Barbara
