How many baby bunnies?

The clock struck 8 pm, we were all staring watching out for one of nature’s beauties. We were waiting patiently to see it peek it’s little head out. Finally it happened. We were amazed but our shrieks scared the poor animal so we quickly got silent. The first baby peeked its head out of the cozy nest his mom had made a month earlier. We all looked at each other. But we didn’t wait all that time to see each other so we turned back to look at the cage. The baby bunny was the cutest thing we have ever seen. Well… puppies and kittens are cute too but at the time we were only thinking of those little ears and big round eyes.

The first baby bunny looked around. He went straight to see if his mother was willing to spare a bit of milk. I guess she wasn’t ready for feeding time so the little black bunny hopped away to a carrot and started to nibble at it. Shortly after, a second baby came out. It was more of a gray and black mixed color. He was about half the size of the first one. Oh so cute and tiny!

But was that all the litter, two small little rabbits? A few seconds later that hypotheses changed as we watched a third one peeking its head out. Another beautiful black one with only a little white spot in the middle of its forehead. We all knew that he was probably the most shy because he was not sure about going out or not but in the end the courageous side of him won the battle.

In the cage there was now a full bunny family:

– The doe, Blanche-Neige, a beautiful miniature rabbit with big gorgeous blue eyes.

– The most courageous bunny, Noches, so black you can barely see the difference between his eyes and hair.

-Bugs, the smallest one, gray and looking like a little mouse.

-Qu‘1 seul Flocon (Flocon for short) a black bunny with one minuscule white dot on his forehead, reminding us of a snowflake falling in the dark night.

Let’s hope these cute lil’ creatures are exactly like their mom and grow up to be cute and FLUFFY bunnies!   by: M. Rollin
