True story. I’ve been looking after rabbits since I was 6 years old or so; my first rabbit I found in my back yard.
I was foolish, I was a child. My mother told me not to pet the baby bunnies, but I couldn’t help it - they were so soft and cute and I didn’t even know why I liked them so much. I had a dog, what more could a child with a big backyard & forest need?
But still I visited the rabbits when I could in the afternoon to make sure they were safe and my dog had not snuffed em out of the hay bail yet (the mother made a nest in one of the random hay bails we keep around for garden things). Danger approached though soon enough
