Babies!

Well, the news is that I am not in fact good at animal husbandry. Apparently, there is, in fact a science behind this beyond lighting some candles, singing some Barry White and hope for the best.

But one of the bunnies did in fact have BABIES! Only one lived, so, it's more like we have a single baby bunny. I am, however, equipped with knowledge from a local farmer (who also is related to us) on how you're actually supposed to do this.

Also, you don't *need* satin and lace and some good Gypsy King music. Go figure. I feel kind of silly now. It was impossible to find little furry mules to go on those bunny feet anyhow.

So we're going to give this a go again. And when this baby has grown into a little furry thing instead of the little pink wriggly thing, there will be pictures. but right now he's, frankly, a little scary looking.

Wait - did you think I meant me?

Sorry to disappoint ;)

Um, how many were there to begin with and why did only one survive? Did Momma Bunny eat the baby bunnies?

I want to see a picture of it looking scary, I think that would be more fun!

I wish I could get a bunny, but big mean Fiance said "no more pets!"

SJ, I hope it wasn't the tacos that gave you food poisoning because then I would have no hope of getting you to visit again!

And I think the baby bunny thing is a ploy and you really are talking about you... am I right? (And if I am, I should probably apologize for all those martinis I poured down your throat the other night!)

FunnyGal KAT said...

HA! Your own mom is calling you out on YOUR blog! Good one, SJ's mom!

sj said...

okay wait- my mom wants me to clarify that she meant to call out our dear M, who actually accused me of eating the baby bunny.

she was horrified.

the bunny count is still one, but it looks like my other breeding attempts may have been successful!

stay tuned for pics of cute baby bunnies...
