    sorry for the miss spellings just but the baby bunny in blankets and next to the heater. The bunny is big enough to eat on it's own just has some blood on it though not much.

    The wound needs to be cleaned and you need to get ahold of a rehaber it will need antibiotics as soon as possible cats have very dirty mouths. Don't mess with it to much they scare to death easy keep what you have it in covered and quite bunnies are very hard to rehab!

    Good luck. I tried once and failed.

    edited to add: I had and don't have any experience with animal rehab though.
    give it your best shot!

    Good luck as well, I've tried many many times too. My darn cats seem to find the little buggers all of the time. Rabbits have such touch nervous systems. Out of 8 my cats brought me they've all died. Even the ones that had no wounds. They get too stressed out.

    I'd raise a chick over a bunny anyday, but have to give it a chance anyway.
