We've got an interesting problem on our hands this weekend: False pregnancy. No, not me...Sophie. This morning she was burrowing around under her towel for about an hour, nothing unusual, but when I lifted it up, it was absolutely covered in fluff. This is something I knew about, yet hadn't really expected: Female rabbits sometimes pull out their fur and make nests, in preparation for having babies - whether they're pregnant or not. Fortunately Sophie was already scheduled for her vet appointment on Tuesday, so I can find out what to do about this. They might recommend having her spayed, as she's only 2.
I forgot to post this video til now - this fall, Richard got some excellent footage of a hare who lives below the Hotel McDonald.
Sophie chases down every last crumb of her puffed-millet treat.
