Was blessed with a very difficult rehabilitation challenge from my work. Cottontails, and 3 of them.
Now in the rehab world there is an inside joke that cottontails "just want to die" meaning they are arguably one of the most difficult wildlife animals to rehab. I've had these 3 beautiful babies for just over 24 hours but unfortunately I have lost one, a little runt smaller than his brothers, who I feared wouldn't make it anyway.
Wildlife rehabilitation has its perks forsure, being able to help cute, defenseless animals who are malnourished, abandoned or injured. But it comes with a price, and that is the sheer fact that you cannot save everything..
Let's send god vibes to the other two survivors thus far and hope they pull through.
