So I got home from work tonight and of course went to check the garden and make sure i didn’t kill anything before the day is over. While doing so i usually let Chaos out to do his business (along with Lucky tonight) and he makes a be line to the back end of the yard. I make no notice of this while i check out the garden, that is until Chaos start jumping around like a idiot and starting to bark like when playing with the cats. I figured he seen a field mouse or another snake and was trying to play with it.
Well after i finish messing about, maybe two minutes later he starts freaking out again and jumping about like he caught something. I walked over with my phone in hand to light my way and when i get over to him i’m horrified to see he’s been doing all this to some baby rabbits. These little ones are maybe a few days old at most as they were tiny but were nice and fur covered and had some jump in them. I shooed him away back into the house, Lucky was already back up near the house as he wasn’t participating in this bad behavior luckily.
Once inside i proceeded to wash my hands with some dawn dish soap to ensure i was cleaned up and venture out into the backyard to find the dispersed bunnies and move them back into their nest. Little note here, i did read that nine out of ten times mom is just away getting in some me time and will still care for the babies once she returns. I also read that you should cover them up with some leaves or clippings and place a small stick over the top to be able to easily see if mama returns. As such i did this and will await the return of mama and watch Chaos to ensure he don’t give these little ones a heart attack.
On a side note I noticed the watermelons apparently want to become one with the serrano pepper plant, will have to take care of this tomorrow so it don’t get choked out here soon.
