Rabbit Nurses Young Outside Our Catio

I peeked out the window Saturday and saw Frankie and Floki lying together on the catio. I almost never see those two together so I had to go out and take a photo.

The next day I say them again in virtually the same spot but this time noticed they were watching a bunny rabbit that was hanging out very close to them. I again grabbed my camera and went outside but when I got out there I noticed the rabbit wasn’t alone. She was nursing two baby rabbits.

This was amazing to see by itself but even more amazing because she seemed oblivious to the cats just a few feet away. She also dug a borough next to the catio just under the cat’s viewing platform.

Living in an urban area, it is always a pleasure to see mother nature at work. Here is a video I took of the mother rabbit and her two young ones

    What Jan said…same thing for us. Those babies are so cute. We raised a wild, baby bunny once after its mom was hit by a car and died. Named it Jelly Bean. When the bunny was old enough we released it back into the wild. Hope you can get the video working.

    Oh how sweet! That Mom is obviously somehow feeling totally unthreatened with her babies so close to the cats and “civilization” – the babies are precious and your boys are being SO GOOD not making any sounds or barely moving so Mom Bunny is not afraid. So happy you got a video – these things are so wonderful to see. I hope they stay safe………..

    Pam and Teddy too

      I think the bunnies around here are used to people somewhat which is why she didn’t mind me filming her but I can’t explain why she is not afraid of cats, unless she understands that the screen is a barrier.
