Damn the fertility of rabbits.
Look what appeared in Ruby's cage a few days ago:
Actually, I'm such an idiot - I didn't even consider that Ruby was pregnant. As I posted a few days ago, Ruby arrived with two kits from the rabbit hoarder who was keeping them outside. I was so preoccupied with the newborn litters of Pistachio and Rascal, and with making sure Jade and Sapphire were okay, that it never even occurred to me that Ruby could be pregnant with more. Even though I know very well that rabbits can get pregnant again the day they give birth.
All these little rabbits that didn't have to exist - now they need love and care and homes, homes that could have gone to any of the rabbits at any shelter. There is no reason for this to happen - it was caused 100% by someone who had too many and chose to throw them all outside and let them breed.
Thanks a bunch!
