Bad News - The kits are orphaned and fighting for dear life: November 12 2019

in actifit •  9 months ago  (edited)

Hello friends🕺,

Thanks for dropping by and here is a summary of my actifit report today.

We had really bad news from the rabbit farm today, as a matter of fact as I write now I am still trying to make sure more bad news don’t turn up if I can help it. I mentioned yesterday that the mother of the new kits killed 2 of her kits accidentally while feeding them.

It was a surprise to me because this is her fourth time and she had never done such things in the 3 last set of babies she had and groomed. I remember going to bed and still pondering why she did that. She was looking ok and all that so I didn’t think there was something wrong with her, I just felt made because the kits were scattered all over the nest box as she had them so probably it was a mistake.

I woke up this morning and rushed to see if there were causalities on the kits side but to my greatest surprise the mother rabbit was stone dead. The kits were looking malnourished and almost dying, this means that she hadn’t feed them all night. They were crying and lifting their head up as if they were expecting their moms breast to appear and satisfy them, you could clearly see that they were struggling to survive.

I immediately called the Vet but unfortunately he couldn’t come as he had other engagement. This is the first time we are experiencing such situation at the farm, I know I had read about what to do in such situation while reading a bunch of books about rabbits almost two years ago but this is the first time it is actually happening.


Sleeping after breakfast

I immediately got an empty milk box and took them away from the farm as they’ll be living with us in the house until they are strong enough. I really pray they make it through to adulthood. I got an injection (without the needle of course), got milk and a glove and started feeding them myself. 2 ml milk measurement it and this will be done twice daily until they are a week, then the measurement will be increased.


About to start dinner


Dinner is served

They stopped crying and struggling after feeding them in the morning, their skin also looked better after feeding them. As I fed them this night they did better at eating than they did in the morning. I guess they are getting used to the fact that that is how they will be getting their meals daily.

They were my day today as I couldn’t go to the office, I however did some work from home. I monitored them all through the day and as in a normal situation, once they are well fed they sleep a lot. I really hope they’ll make it through like their dad called Miracle. Maybe they’ll all be named Miracle 1 to 4. Lol. For now it is going to be a long 8 to 9 before they can see and another 2 weeks or so before they start eating other stuff.

Enjoy this song by Sinach with tittle “Way Maker”. I pray these kits make it. Pease

I am so glad that you found them in time @ketcom,do you have any idea what happened to their mother???
How often do you need to feed them, and when you go back to work what are you going to do????
What a difficult day......and not the kind of @actifit day to have ...
You are a good substitute Mom!!!!

I really don't know what happened to the mother.
For now I am going to be feeding them twice daily.
Once they eat they sleep almost all day, I stayed back yesterday just to see how they'll be doing.
Thanks chief.

That’s good to hear, I wondered if there feeding would be hourly!🤔

Thank you for your presence of 'marlians.com'. It is more valued than you may know.

This is 'your boy terry' and at this stage, i am turning to each human and steemian as it has become very pertinent to do so. I have grown very ill and i cater to my dad who is ill. If i continue like this, i may deteriorate beyond repair. I need to heal and i need your help.

Lately, i was in Steemfest to discuss all my projects, including 'marlians.com'. I was there with my last ounce of energy.
Listen to my talk:

At this stage, all my projects (ulogs.org, steemgigs.org, teardrops.network, marlians.com) are set, each model of each one but it is also in these times that my battles have skyrocketed and my health has deteriorated. To be more effective thus, i desire to setup a hub called 'macrohard' in the Philippines, near my house, to enable me gather 'programmers/enterpreneurs' to hasten the development of each of my projects prior to SMT, allow me to have room for a health-rehabilitation and to cater to my dad still. This is very possible but i need your support.

With a 'Macrohard hub' setup, we can emanate 'brothers' and together help many others build their noble dreams.

I have written a fundition postand i am now coming out heartfeltly to implore you to support my kickstarter, however small. Please also share this to others confidently.

Fundition allows you donate using steem, other cryptocurrency or even FIAT. (I also have paypal: comsilbronze4@gmail.com)

Where you have donated something, feel free to send me an email on 'comsilbronze4@gmail.com' containing your steem username. I may be able to help you in return with something, just tell me what it is openly. I would also like to give you some MARLIANS stake to appreciate you. (Note MARLIANS is very related to the TEARDROPS SMT)

I have explained all my projects in a 70-min read here, just incase you want to read more about the histories and stories constituting 'surpassinggoogle'.

Your boy Terry, whether bulls or bears.

I sorry to hear about the Mom rabbit. The kits are lucky that you are taking such good care of them.

Thanks my dear, I still the mother is best though. Lol.

Oh wow 😱. I am shocked by the news of the death of mother rabbit 😢. I suspect she raptured something during the delivery of her babies. Too bad animals cannot talk, she probably would have told you about the pain.
I am so glad you got the syringe feeding going on💯 and saved the little kits before it was too late.
Fantastic tune 🎶 to go with the situation and I too hope the 4 miracles make it through. You are now the new mom n dad too.
Keep stepping and enjoy your Wednesday 👍 😁

Thanks my dear, I just hope they'll make it.
