Aren't they adorable? Today they are one week old, and growing fur, fat and sleek. Their ears are still tucked against their teeny heads, but soon they'll be standing up like crumpled flower petals. In another week, their eyes will open sloooowly and then, they'll start exploring their way out of the nest box.
Ophelia is being a wonderful mother. She's hungry as a horse, so I'm giving her lots of extra kibble, hay, and slices of dehydrated pineapple as special treats. (That's how she let me video her babies--she was preoccupied with gnawing her ring of pineapple and didn't mind that I was looking at her precious brood.)
Little white rabbits, in a pile. It doesn't get much cuter than that.
