    That's pretty neat. Did you give it milk? I would use goat's milk or skim. I know whole milk is not good for animals and usually they use goats milk for everything. It might eat some greens too.

    Please call a rehabber....why was it taken from the wild? If its eyes open, fully furred and out of the nest its old enough to be left alone as long as it isn't injured.

    Many people often mistaken a perfectly healthy baby rabbit for being abandoned when they are often NOT. The mother is most likely nearby and watching from afar. This is the age at which they begin to roam. I once had a young rabbit about have the size of my fist. It ran away when I put it outside one day to get some fresh air. It ran under my neighbor's porch and lived there for several weeks until one of my neighbor's cats got to it. The thing practically tripled in size while living on its own. Please take it back to where it was found.
