    Relaxing with my Buns
    Hi
    I recently had a litter of 5 baby bunnies from my mini lop doe. The doe has had 2 litters previously and did a wonderful job with them.
    But today went I went to hold the babies(Which are 2 weeks old) I picked up the brown girl, and she was bleeding on some of her toes! I quickly checked the others to see if they had it too. A black baby girl had almost no paw! Her little left paw is hanging by a couple tendons. And she looks fine!
    I read that it could be a rat. But my 3 cats(Which are wonderful hunters) stay on the porch where the bunnies are, and would've attacked if there was a rat in the area. I have 10 rabbits(2 adults, 3 juveniles, and 5 babies) And only these 2 bunnies have it!
    I am really scared that the black babies paw might not heal.
    I am also wondering if they are doing it to themselves. Cause I saw them both chewing on their paws! The Mom has nothing to do with it.
    I cannot cull a2 week old baby bunny!

    Please if anyone has had this problem comment below Thankyou!
    I will post pictures soon
