Growing Bunnies

Good news, and sad news.  We lost the other 'runt' (The Politician) yesterday, but we have three adorable, thriving kits.  They're starting to grow fur, and are charming, wiggly and warm.  It's tempting to hold them (a lot!) and it's definitely okay to handle them.  They are pets, and Polly is well used to us. Still, we don't want to make her nervous by being at them constantly and they still sleep a lot, so we leave them alone for most of the day.

But they're so cuuuuuuuuuute!

One looks like it's going to have coloring very much like Polly's - white, with grayish-tan spots and a grayish-tan bottom.

This one is very wiggly, and I think this is the one the boys call Jackie Chan, (always kicking).

This one looks grayish and we expect it will look the most like Podger.

"He" is all roly-poly adorableness.  I love those little ears!
I think they call him Titanic, because he's the biggest.

This sleepy little one also looks solid colored, but a little lighter than the previous one.

I don't know if "he" has a name yet.

And if you're wondering, I don't know what the black spot on his ear is, but I checked on him and it wiped right off.  I think I'll have the boys totally clean out the nest box and replace all the shavings and hay, just to be on the safe side, though.

Just wanted to give you your "cute fix" for the day ;D

Oh my goodness - I cannot show this to my boys, because they will immediately want a pet bunny! Cute overload!
