Sick Bunny Heals Up
Mordecai has emerged from the woods, and life with four kids and three bunnies is back to normal again. It was touch-and-go there for a few days, as we were concerned when he stopped eating, drinking, pooing. We knew something was up when he turned his nose to carrots and kibble. He was just sleeping all the time, even more than the usual 15 hours per day.
