Wild Bunny Found!
This is the 2nd one this week that my neighbors cat has caught and dragged into their house.
The first one did not make it, but it was MUCH younger than this one.
This one's eyes are open, it has a very fat belly, it is injured a bit, it appears as though its leg is hurt [however...could be cause it is young].
My questions are since it's belly is SOOO fat...should it be stimulated? I'm not sure if it needs to be made to potty or not at this age. Also should the heat pad be on for him?
I have placed clover, unflavored oats in his cage. I've gotten him to drink a little pedialyte, because he was dehydrated and he really still needs more. The problem is he won't eat much.
However, he does hop around a lot when I try to syringe him pedialyte.
In case this helps: I believe it is a cottontail bunny. If these open their eyes at 9 weeks then it has to be 9 weeks old. Is it correct that they don't open their eyes until 9 weeks?
