Patiently awaiting new kits

We’ve scaled down on our amount of rabbits over the last month or two. We now have 4 bucks and 5 does and will most likely let 1 pair go to a new home soon. Although the adult buns are getting fewer, I’m happy to post about two pregnancies!

Levi and Mushroom mated for the second time about 2 weeks ago. I’m still hopeful for a BEW, but we’ll have to see. Their previous kit was so cute and super friendly.

Mushroom’s expected due date is 8 August 2013 and there’s already someone that’s booked a kit from her expected litter! Mushroom is a lovely bun, but not very friendly during pregnancies! The band-aids on my hands can vouch for that!

Then we’ve paired Bugs and Clover. They are exremely cute and affectionate together and their little fuzzy faces look like a match made in heaven. Clover’s mommy is Phoebe, so there might be a chance of a himalayan kit, but we don’t really care, as long as the kit or kits are as adorable as Bugs’ previous little sweetheart, Bonbon. We miss that cute fur ball so much!

Growing up so fast

Clover’s little kit is on the dot 8 weeks old now. She is such a little angel – so playful, loving and friendly. She loves attention and even makes her mommy a little jealous every now and then, if you ask me. As everyone knows, Clover is the favourite here and likes to make sure we don’t forget it, and no one else steels any of it away from her. In the photograph below, the two are quite snuggy together. It took a while for Clover to have babies, but she was really a good mommy to this little one!

Clover’s bundle of joy

Clover’s little kit is now about 3 weeks old and she is quite lively. Clover is very protective of her and does not like it when we remove the kit from their cage. She has a great shape, for her size,and a beautiful colour. It also seems she might have Clover’s coat which is half long and half short fur.

Happy days for Clover

Clover had one kit on Monday, 25 March 2013. The kit is healthy and Clover seems to be doing quite well with looking after it. I am so very happy that she has finally had a kit and more so that the kit is healthy!

In the photograph above it can be seen how much of her own fur Clover has pulled out to keep the kit warm in the nest.

Nesting, nesting!

So yesterday morning, 19 March 2013, Clover started building her nest! She is also spot on with timing as she is on day 27 of her pregnancy. If all goes well, we will have new kits on Sunday.

And while mommy is busy nesting, daddy (Noah) was having a ball in the garden – completely oblivious to what’s going on…

Clover and Noah

Clover is currently 3 weeks pregnant. We moved her in with Noah and the two get along famously. They never fight and as far as I have been able to see he only mated with her on the first day they were together. Since then they have been like a couple in love – grooming each other constantly. Clover’s due date is 24 March 2013.

We would like to wish all our friends, family and followers a very merry Christmas and may the new year be joyful and blessed!

Clover steals attention again


Clover really runs the household. But who can be blamed – honestly, just look at that little face! On Friday, 7 December 2012, Clover had a date with Noah – it was her first time with a buck and I’m pleased to say that all went well. Her expected due date is Tuesday, 8 January 2013. It’ll be our first 2013 litter!

Hey – mind your own business!
