Hello, I am extremely sorry I haven’t posted in AGES! I think last time I posted, I was talking about how I possibly was going to get a new bunny rabbit, so I’ll go from there..
Well, I now have my beautiful, gentle giant rabbit, Kimi! He is around 8 months old now, and he is doing very well, as soon as I can I’ll post some pictures. But, that’s not what I wanted to speak about today, but I think I might write something so you can get to know Kimi a little better as soon as I can.
This is just a story time, but I will be making an update supplying so pictures as soon as possible.
So, the crazy thing… Well, a while ago, I don’t know if you all know, but I have a female rabbit, and a male rabbit (Kimi being the male, the female is my sister’s named Milky wave) And recently, they had gotten out together, and I’ll let you finish the story, but, nether the less, we tried not to think too much of it, since now she’s around 6 years old, it was pure fear of it, you know, weakening her. To say she’s an old lady, she’s extremely strong, and I’m sure she’s going to be with us for a long while, which I’m super happy about. So, a while later, she had started making a nest, one of the first signs of rabbit pregnancy, ALTHOUGH, there is such thing as a phantom, which is a trigger in a rabbit’s mind to lead them to think they are pregnant, when they aren’t. Unfortunately, that has been something she’s suffered with for as long as she’s lived, even when we didn’t own any male rabbits. Again, we though, it might be that, since she has gotten out with our past giant, Derek, and never gave birth. Although, we were aware of the possibilities.
Now, I’m kind of going to talk in the present. Last night, my friend stayed over, and Kimi was outside, and he stamped his feet and ran inside startled. We thought nothing of it, again, we just thought it might’ve been a cat, or something like that. He was fine, and that’s what mattered, right?
Well, just the morning of the day I am writing this, my friend still being here, by the way, my mum went into where we keep our FEMALE rabbit, obviously we do not house both together, otherwise we’d have about 20 litters right now, aha, and found blood, (before you all get nervous this is going to be tragic, don’t fear, this story ends happily, extremely happily :)) and she’d told us that she’d thought that she’d gave birth to undeveloped bunnies (kits). Although, Milky Wave, was still fine! She’s a strong gal, trust me.
Then, my friends mum came to get her, and she’d told her about the blood, and about what had happend. They decided to go out and check on her a bit later on. So they did, and… You can probably guess what they found… Newborn baby rabbits! They all look healthy at the glimpses we’ve gotten of them, oh, and did I mention? I know I’ve mentioned that Kimi is a giant… Well, Milky Wave is an extremely tiny rabbit! I really don’t know how she gave birth to….4 BABY RABBITS! You don’t know how relieved I was to know that she was well, and that they were all alive. I was actually shaking, aha, I was just, relieved, I guess.
Now, everything pieced together. I think we have been honestly blessed, that she, and how tiny she is! Could give birth to DAMN 4 rabbits! As soon as I can, and as soon as Milky isn’t so protective over the bunnies, I will surely get them out (OBVIOUSLY when they are ready) and I’ll take some pictures 🙂 You’ll also get to see a little of how HUGE Kimi is, and how tiny Milky is, aha.
Thank you so much for reading, I realise this is, well, quite long ;D But, I really wanted to share this, I think it’s such an amazing story. The bunnies look extremely healthy, but they were born literally today or yesterday, we’re not sure. I can’t wait to tell everyone ;D Please comment any tips you have for me and my family, and care for Mother Rabbit, and what we can do to ensure they are healthy without disturbing anything. 🙂
Thankyou, Jess. 🙂
