Thursday

This teeny-tiny wild cottontail couldn't be more excited for lunchtime. He practically dances with excitement while he gulps down his bottle.

 You can even hear his rescuers laughing in the background while he paddles his little feet in the air.

Even though they're totally adorable, baby wild animals like this little guy aren't pets

 I/My Dog/My Cat Destroyed a Wild Rabbit Nest! What Do I Do? Remake the nest as best you can with grasses, hay, straw in the same place. Nests can be moved to a safer place up to 10′ away from the original site and can be reconstructed if necessary. To make a new nest, dig a shallow hole about 3″ deep and put into it as much of the original material as you can recover, including the mother’s fur. Add dried grass as needed, and put the young back.


 Mother rabbits return to the nest to nurse only at night, staying away as much as possible so as not to attract predators. To determine if the mother is returning, create a tic-tac-toe pattern over the nest with straw, grasses or tiny twigs. Wait 24 hours to see if the twigs have been disturbed. She may be able to feed them without moving the twigs much, so double check–If the babies look healthy, are warm, then the mother is coming back. If they are cold, dehydrated, get them to a professional; do not care for them yourself. Please contact a Wildlife Rehabber or rabbit vet immediately.

    That is the kneading effect. All mammals do this to encourage the milk to flow.
