The babies won't be adopted out until they are spayed and neutered, so at least 4 months, but sure! Also, if any members are located near Salt Lake City I'm going to be leaving Utah at the end of April and all of Ebony's babies will need foster homes until they're ready to be adopted (except for Curly...he's staying with me ).

GAHHHHHH MY HEAD JUST EXPLODED! Such beautiful little babies! It seems like you're doing a wonderful job with them. I hope the older ones get adopted soon after they're fostered! (((adoption vibes)))

I edited the initial post with the rescue's contact info. I also fixed the email address. Please don't put the full address on the site because spam bots will pick up on that are begin spamming. I just changed the "@" and "." to "at" and "dot" spelled out.

Thank you for fostering all these bunnies. They are so precious. I hope that they quickly find forever homes when they go up for adoption.

I'll be able to tell the sex in about a month

Well, I weaned Chester and Cecelia last night and they'll be heading back to the shelter in the morning to find new foster homes. I also took out the nest and the babies are already exploring the levels of the cage somewhat.

 The babies are 3 weeks old now! Chester and Cecelia were returned yesterday so I don't feel too overwhelmed anymore

Chubs has been freaking adorable the last few days

I heard a weird noise coming from the cage and found this...

Ohh my, adorable! Love the picture of Chubs being completely round .

Curly is really interesting! Can't wait to see what his fur looks like as he gets older.

Just wanted to say that I think it's great that you're doing this. I live in Provo and hobby-stalk the Utah Humane Society's website all the time . It will be really cool to see them there looking for homes after seeing them as babies.

No way, I'm in Provo too! And yeah I used to stalk it all the time too, especially when my fosters are in . The Angora that's up there now was also a foster of mine for a short while.

Provo too? Way cool. I'll still be here for another couple years while I finish my Food Science degree at BYU. Good luck wherever you're going! Someday I hope to leave too. Feels so far off though .

 

I've totally seen that Angora like 50 times. She's so cute! I have a weakness for gray rabbits . What kind of care does an Angora require anyways? I know you have to groom them frequently and get them trimmed sometimes, but is there anything else?

I'm at BYU, actually graduating in a month in Clinical Lab Science. After I'm done I'm heading back to the Pacific Northwest

Angora's are pretty high maintenance. They need to be brushed a LOT and when they start to wool you have chunks of fur everywhere. Fifi is a really sweet bunny with a big personality. She's more like a dog and hates are cage, haha. She's house-trained though!

In other news, here's an update for 3.5 weeks!

Curly is turning out to be extremely sweet and outgoing. When the biddies are out he likes to come sit on my lap for a bit and then run around and get some good binkies!

Chubs loves to eat and play, and is probably the most aloof of all of the biddies. He's super sweet but would rather be running around than hand around me

Blackie is the shy and sweet one. He is tender and gentle, and when I took them outside for the first time all he wanted to do was crawl in my lap and cuddle. He also LOVES to climb which is super weird. I can't ever get it on camera but he climbs the corners of cages!

I also decided to introduce them to Theodore and let them play, because both sides were very intrigued with the other. I actually started letting them play a week ago and it has been going GREAT. Theodore runs around, binkies, and lets the bubs follow him around and eat his food! He doesn't mind when they wander around his cage and hang around his food bowl, so I think that's a good sign

I got some ADORABLE vids of Theodore and the biddies this afternoon. The first is of him and Curly, and the other is just him binkying and playing with the biddies <3

How do you get any work done or sleep with so much cuteness in the house? If it were me, you'd find me a week later in the bunny room, eyes bugging out and a smile from ear to ear and super smelly from not moving for a week.

I make sure to give myself plenty of bunny time . Also I study while I watch them. It's definitely hard though! The chore aspect of it definitely keeps me grounded

Well, I think I'm a rabbit now! hahaha

I read through that behavior website and have been testing it on Ebony. This evening we touched noses and when I rested my chin on the edge of the cage she came up and started grooming my nose! I'm pretty sure that's the cutest thing I've ever experience, LOL. I groomed her back (with my hand) and got tooth purrs and a very happy bunny.

These guys are so adorable. I love watching them run around. They are so lucky to be fostered in a nice home. Great job!
