Help--Mooshoo and Pancake have mites??

Hey, all.

So, yesterday, we noticed a little scab near Pancake's neck. Today, we noticed two on Mooshoo. We first thought they were fighting (though, they get along really well), but after a quick internet search, I now think they have mites.

Here's the question: HOW did they get them? Their cage is kept meticulously clean. We have a huge metal cage (the 2-story Critter Nation cage just for the 2 of them) and only a very small litter pan. Other than that, there's no bedding aside from a couple of cubes and some felt blankets.

Here's another question: it is Sunday and tomorrow is a holiday. That means we can't talk to our vet until Tuesday. Is there any way to treat them/help them until then? Will they be okay if we don't get medicine until Tuesday?

And finally: If it is coming from the litter (Yesterday's News), are our bunnies in trouble, too? They use the same litter.

Thanks for your help!
