Here's the story:

Our neighbor was taking out his trash and he found eight baby rabbits very close to the road. My dad was walking the dog and saw so I was summoned with my camera. I was expecting a snake or something, but I wasn't disappointed to find the little rabbits! I took some pictures (which I just accidentally deleted. Oops) then we put them in a basket with a towel in it.

Somehow, they ended up in my care. We couldn't decide what to do with them, so they stayed overnight in a cat carrier. It was either that or put them back by the road.

We're taking them to the nature center today.

NOTE: In the photos where I'm holding a rabbit, it's just because they fell out of the makeshift nest. I'm not holding them just for pleasure (although I do admit, I enjoy it), I'm putting them back.

UPDATE:

I just returned home from taking the babies to a lady who rehabilitates these kind of animals. She said they were thin yet healthy and around two weeks old. She also said that they hadn't eaten in a while, so something must have happened to their mother. That would explain why two of them kept nibbling my hand.

Oh no! Poor babies. But I'm glad you helped them.

They are SO cute! I'm glad you took them to someone who knows how to care for them.
