When Tony woke me up later and asked how long he should let me sleep, my blurry mind suddenly remembered the rabbit meeting. I asked what time it was... an hour past the meeting time. Oh no!! I checked my email on my phone as I ran down the stairs. I threw my muck boots on and ran for the barn. One of the kids grabbed Honey Bunny while I filled a baggy with food. Fortunately all of the paperwork is already printed and in the car. We got there as fast as we could and thankfully the lady we were meeting had stuck around!
I was (am... still am) so embarrassed, I didn't even charge her for Honey Bunny. This is his second attempt to find a home - the last lady backed out due to personal issues. I just wanted to make sure Honey Bunny made it to a family that would love him. I can't believe I slept through my meeting. I'm still not sure why my family (who all heard the alarms on the phone go off) didn't come and ask me at that point.
So to Lisa, who drove quite a while and waited an hour for me and Honey Bunny to show up. Thank you, and again, I am so sorry! From here on out, my phone is staying near me unless it has to charge.
I really wish I could figure out what's going on with my long-standing allergy issue. My sinuses hate me, my chest feels heavy, and I am so tired. Except at night after I've had my nice afternoon nap, then I can't sleep at night - which makes the whole thing worse. I'm going to bed at the proper time tonight to try to re-set sleep schedule.
I was able to get photos of the baby bunny who alluded me yesterday. Both colony litters were named too. The older litter that's ready to go now was given Doctor Who companion names (Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Clara Oswin Oswald, Amy Pond, and Rory Williams). The younger babies that aren't weaned yet have been named after "under-appreciated" gemstones (Sapphire, Amethyst, Peridot, and Lapis).
We are two days out from the expected due date for a couple new litters. I know Feather had a stillborn kit in the cage several days ago. I'm not sure if she just lost one, or the whole litter or if she will have babies now or not. This is our first experience with premature stillborn rabbits (more than a couple days early). We shall see. Quetzal is also due. Unfortunately, I had planned to move Quetzal and Quince into a separate cage away from their mom to give them all more space, but they I noticed that Princess Poppy and Pocahontas, who've been in the rabbit tractor all summer, suddenly look thin. Turns out they weren't getting moved to fresh grass twice a day like they were supposed to, so they got moved back into a barn in the cage and are getting free-feed until they regain the body condition I want to see for them. So, Quetzal and Quince are stuck with mom for a little longer. Hopefully they don't cause issues with upcoming litters.
