Well, Lil Pete is still with us. He actually stayed in the nest that I restored.
I can’t tell if Mrs. Cottontail came during the night to feed him or not, as the nest looks exactly like it did when I restored it. However, Pete doesn’t look dehydrated, and there isn’t any gritty brown urine around him, so I am hoping that Mrs. Cottontail is sneaking in after hours. I put out another call to the Wildlife Center of Missouri and am waiting on a return call. I am hoping they will say to just watch him over the next few days. I think I would miss him if he were gone. I will take him in to their rabbit rehabilitation center, if I need to, though.
