TEENY ......


Orange colored Teeny was the runt, and we did not really expect him to make it .. he was very frail and small. Plus these guys were no more than 6 or 7 days old and that is so young to go off of mother's milk. Fortunately there are rescuers here who are prepared for that, and they fixed us up and we did the rest!
This is the little syringe we started with to feed them - I think it was .3 ccs of formula per feeding. You had to push the plunger ever so easy - else too much shot out! I think it was symethacone(?) that we greased the plunger with to keep it moving easily. We got really good at this and maybe tomorrow I will show you what we were able to eventually move up to!
Go to OURFUZZYFAMILY for an amazing set of posts showing a bunch of baby bunnies from day 1, right up to now, which is about day 20 or so. They change and grow so fast!

Our Stanley has some congenital problems and is not doing very well, although he is comfortable. Sadness again in the House of Rabbits. He has always been such a snuggly and happy guy.
I hear there MAY be some open refrigerator pictures coming, once cleaning and restocking happens!

Teeny is very likely the cutest bunny I have ever seen!
