Silwy Wabbits

It's baby bunny season again. For the third year in a row they've decided to put the nest in our fenced in yard. Never mind that they have tons of space outside the fence. No, they need to put the nest in where the dogs potty, run, and practice agility.

Jack is so soft-hearted. All God's creatures are under his care. Every morning he puts a milk crate over the nest so the dogs don't bother the bunnies. Then around sunset, he removes the carton so mama can come be with the babies. *sigh*

We've successfully (?) raised three litters of bunnies using this method. I guess it's fortunate we don't have a cat.

I've photographed the nest. Not too much to see just yet. It's mostly fur and grass and three wee bunnies. I have to admit they are the cutest things...the only thing cuter is a Sheltie pup. Right?

The bunny nest as of 5/10/09.

The nest as of 5/12/09. Here you can see two bunnies huddled together.
