Zach and I look at each other and ask “where’s Pip?” Suddenly it dawns on me…she’s in the rabbit nest boxes. Fearing the worst I hobble-trot as fast as I can, with a baby strapped to my chest, across the yard. Run smack into Pip who says “two of the baby bunnies got away!”
My first thought was “how’d they get away? Never mind, I’ll get answers once we get the bunnies back in the cage.”
I manage to find both of them right away, but the process of catching one means the other gets scared and runs off. We look and look to no avail. I feel sick about it, because I left the nest boxes unlatched during the morning chores, which allowed Pip to get in there in the first place.
Dinner time rolls around and I head to the rabbit/hay barn, and there is what Pip has now dubbed “adventure bunny”. We caught her and reunited her with mum and litter mates.
I told Pip “thank you for telling me the bunnies got away, that was the right thing to do. It was not okay to get into the nest box with out a grown up though.”
