Dinah’s Kit Goes Exploring

This morning, we found one of Dinah’s kits outside the nest box!  Not sure how this could happen, since the side of the nest box is six inches high and the kit is only about 1 1/2 inches tall at this point. We do know that when startled, they leap about 3 or 4 inches into the air (and usually land on top of another kit or two.)  A two inch wide portion of the front side of the nest box is about 3 or 4 inches high to facilitate mommy bunny getting in and out of the box, so maybe the kit just happened to leap in just the right place. ???  At any rate, the kit was huddled against the outside of the nest box, and Dinah was standing guard between the kit and the front of the cage.  Good Mommy! All is well now that we have placed the kit back in the nest box (where it promptly went to sleep.)
