More bad news…

IMG-20120813-02875
It seems we’re on a spree of really bad luck. On Friday, 22 February 2013, Phumela had her second litter. She was pregnant with Bugs’ kits. She only had one kit, but it was also a peanut. It is so awful to open up the nest and see this incredibly small baby rabbit and to know that there’s no chance of survival. It lived for 2 days and yesterday when I peeked into the nest I found that is has passed on over the rainbow bridge… Poor Phumela kept sitting over it like she thought it needed more feeding and then she pulled more fur out and put in on top of it. I had her on my lap in front of the television the entire evening to distract her a bit. She seems better today…
