 Humane Society of Utah:  http://utahhumane.org/ 

For fostering: Call Barbara or Lisa at the shelter 261-2919 (ext. 215) or email: bconrad AT utahhumane DOT org. 
For adoptions check out: http://utahhumane.org/adoptions

 

So I started this thread to post updates, pics, and videos of my current foster family from the Utah Humane Society of a mama and her 5 kits. The story I got was that the mother was kept with a male and was not separated after she gave birth. The shelter currently has another litter of hers that was weaned, so they have THREE concurrent litters of hers . My job is to keep them as long as I can, and I'm planning on keeping them until the biddies (what I call the youngest litter) are weaned so she can get spayed. 

Currently, 1.5 babies have opened their eyes! They are 14 days old approximately and the white kit JUST opened one of its eyes. The blue tort had its eyes open yesterday, but hasn't quite decided if he wants to use them yet . The white one however has been zooming around since its eye opened. 

Here are pics of everyone as of today:

Mama, who has been named Ebony

Chester: 5 weeks old

 

Cecilia: 5 weeks old

The biddies: 14 days

 

 

Eyes open on day 13!

and day 14

 

And my favorite baby pic so far:

Poor little Ebony. It's great that her baby bearing days will soon be over! Those babies are precious. I love that little black one of the "biddies". Cecilia and Chester look so much like their mommy. The video you posted on the other thread made my head explode. Thanks for sharing! I am glad they will all one day end up with well educated forever homes!!!!

I know! And I honestly have no idea how many previous litters she's had because I don't know how old she is. She does have a few white hairs on her back so she could be older...but I'm really hoping it was just these three .

It's so wonderful that you are helping out those adorable babies (and Mama). Must be very time consuming takings care of so many wee ones but I'm sure they pay you in back in cute.

That must be so hard on a bunny to have so many litters in a short time. I hope Mama gets a wonderful, forever home after she's spayed where she can rest and be spoiled.

Thank you for taking care of them. It must be very hard and time-consuming. They are fortunate to have a great foster mom!

 Day 15: Chubs and Curly (the white and brown ones...those are temporary names, LOL) have completely opened their eyes! Curly has been having problems with one of them getting crusty and sealing shut, so I have to wet it and open it every once in awhile. Hopefully that stops soon. Still waiting on Blackie to open his eyes.

 
So I think I'm going to return Chester and Cecelia once the biddies are out of the nest box and roaming because it's going to get very crowded very fast. They'll be about 6-7 weeks so they should be fine to go into other foster homes until they're old enough to get spayed/neutered.

Oh my goodness, so cute! Curly looks to be the runt if I am not mistaken? I remember when my mom had and oops litter some 10 years ago and some of the babies had crusty eyes. We just wet them with warm water and a soft cloth like you are doing and they eventually grew out of it, so here are some vibes that the same thing happens with Curly!

 Day 17 <3

Everyone's getting fluffier and eyes are opening wider! They've started nibbling hay and pellets but still don't know how to drink out of a water bottle.

Tonight's a big day! I'll be weaning Chester and Cecelia in order to prepare them to head back to the shelter on Saturday to find other foster homes. They're approximately 6 weeks old now, so they should be fine. I'm also removing the nest from the cage as the babies are 17 days old and it is no longer needed. Plus, it's gross and I don't want them to get sick from it.

Now for the best part, pics and vids:

Chubs loves to sleep...and he has some pretty interesting positions!

 

Blackie being adorable. He climbed up my shirt and decided to nap in the crook of my arm <3

 

And Curly's fur update. He looks amazing!

 

 

This is me

Hi, the baby photo's are cute.

Can you please post a link to the Humane Society and contact information for possible adopters who are interested in adopting them. That will keep in the spirit of the Rescue Section so that this will help get the babies adopted :~)
