This whole crazy (mis)Adventure start, unbeknownst to me, 28-31 days ago. I however wasn’t clued into the goings on till around 2:30pm on Wednesday. That is when I noticed our female rabbit, Graycie, pulling fur like a mad woman!!! Having raised rabbits most of my life I instantly knew, she THOUGHT she was pregnant and was building a nest. I, however, had my doubts. I mean we had thought she was pregnant once before and nothing came of it. I couldn’t remember the last time the oldest country kid had his pets out to play. And yes, the other rabbit, Steve, is a male. Was it possible or was she just crazy in the head? Only time would tell.
A day passed and still nothing. She pulled more fur and I still had my doubts. Her previous owner had said she had pulled fur once but had never had a litter, so I still thought we were dealing with a possible false pregnancy. I checked on her often, making sure she had water and food. I checked on her Thursday, about 26 hours after she had started pulling fur and still nothing. I checked her an hour later and the fur in the box was wiggling. I told the oldest country kid she had had a baby. Of course his first question was "can we keep it?" I said yes, if there is one you can keep it..... I was delighted to find seven beautiful bouncing baby bunnies!!!!! I told my oldest country kid that he could still only keep one. The rest we would find homes for. I guess Ms. Graycie knew what she was up to after all!!
Now here is the funny part….. Graycie is a Flemish Giant and Steve is a Mini Rex….. In dog terms it is like a Chihuahua knocking up a Great Dane! LOL I have no clue what these little (or big) guys are going to end up looking like!!! The oldest country kid is over the moon, wanting to keep them all. The littlest country kid just keeps saying “baby.” And as for hubby… not being a country kind of guy before I met him, I think he is a little in shock still.
So welcome the seven newest members of the (mis)Adventures family. I can’t wait to share them growing up with you all. Can you say cute overload is on the way!?!? While we honestly did not NEED a litter of bunnies….. Well sometimes life just surprises you!! But from now on…. sorry rabbits… no more “playing” together. It is obvious there was a little more going on then hopping around the living room……
