HoudiniThis is our little wild cottontail rescue. We named him “Houdini” because of his mysterious ability to escape. We’ve had him now two weeks, and were a bit afraid that he might not make it, since he was so small and was still nursing. But Ruby has done her job, and he’s graduated to pellets this week. His demeanor is so much different than the domestic kits. He’s skittish and hides from the littlest commotion. He doesn’t like to be handled and fights like mad when you try to pick him up. I’ve decided to turn him lose once he’s weaned, rather than try to keep him in a cage. He’s much too wild to keep confined.

But too cute, huh?
