My bunny, Capella, was due to have babies soon. It was her first litter and cold outside, so I moved her up to the porch, covered her cage, and gave her lots of hay. Now we've had rabbits for years, and I know what kind of mothers they are, so I slept on the couch for a few nights, checking on her whenever I woke up in the night. This is the first time one of my own rabbits has had babies. This morning I checked on her one last time, and as it had warmed up some, went to catch up on sleep. Then when I went out to do the chores late in the morning, I found she had had the babies. She hadn't made a nest, just scattered them around the cage on top of the hay. They were cold. I warmed them up, but it was too late. :sigh: I guess it's my fault, first for breeding her to kindle in the winter, then for leaving her for several hours without checking. I might even have overlooked them in the night; I expected her to at least build a nest (I had given her a nest box). I know that stuff like this happens, but I wish I had been more careful. And I wish rabbits at least cared five cents for their babies! This isn't the first time something like this has happened.
