...not a miniature post, but still very small and cute!
When we came back from our trip to England last week, we had a new addition to the little menagerie at our home: a baby hare. Our neighbour's kids had rescued the poor little thing from the claws of a cat and brought it to our house. As we weren't home, my mother (an experienced maternity nurse lol) and our son took care of the new baby.
He has been thriving on goat's milk, generous portions of hay, herbs (read: weeds from our garden, of which we have plenty) and special baby bunny food. He (I think it is a he) is now heavy enough to be weened off the milk. Thankfully he is eating all of the other things very well as well.
We have to let him go eventually, as we have a law in Holland which states you cannot keep any kind of wildlife in captivity. So we have to get him slowly reacquainted with the big outdoors again soon. Until that time, we are so enjoying him...isn't he the just the sweetest little thing?
