Ain't no Sunshine when she's gone...

Poor little Sunshine didn't make it through the weekend. The tiny bunny that Dad's office manager found succumbed on Saturday. She was just too small to be separated from her mother, I think. She was buried following a nice ceremony performed by the six-year-old daughter of Dad's office manager. Although she was around only a short time, she touched the heart of a six-year-old girl, and that is a lifetime's worth of good right there.

Awww, poor little sweetie. Some things aren't meant to be, we understand. Who knows? Maybe she will have inspired this young girl to rescue non-human animals when she grows up, or foster, become a wildlife biologist, or even to become a vet.

That's sad. Body temperature and constipation seem to be big problems for bottle fed animal orphans. Wet cotton balls can be used to mimic the missing parent's behavior. Put warm towels under, but not over the furry baby.

It is very sad. Baby bunnies are hard--even if you are a professional animal rescuer.
