My dented mani that was totally worth it :)

Morning guys!! Okay, so a friend/neighbor came over Friday night carrying this tiny pet carrier, and inside was an adorable baby bunny!!! She had found him at her work, and she didn't want to leave him, thinking he would die. She had plans Saturday morning, so I of course volunteered to bunny sit. She named him Junior, and after some research, discovered he is about 2 weeks old. OMG you guys, his cuteness is almost too much to handle. My Chihuahua Rolo, seemed to even love him, and let Junior snuggle next to him. They had fallen asleep in my lap and I had to share some pics. I'll get to the mani after this :P





Here he is eating. Eeeek, too cute, I even woke Jack up from his nap to watch, lol.

So here is my dented mani. Well he was back in his cage when I did my nails, but a little while later, I got him out again to eat, and he is feisty, and his tiny nails, dented my mani, but ti was totally worth it. This is 1 coat of Urban Decay Bruise over 2 coats of Ulta Cocktails Anyone, which is a dark purple.

  21. I literally squealed!! OMG He is the cutest little thing! Sarah from Samarium's Swatches is next to me, and she approves as well!

    This mani looks very close to Orly Royal Velvet!

  22. So very cute! Glad Junior got saved and the dented mani is very original that way - sort of a signature mani by Junior. LOL

  23. One day my brother brought home a baby bunny he found on a basketball court. When we called the emergency vet to find out what to do they told us to put it back because the momma bunny does go looking for her babies at night to feed them and even though there was no signs of her, the bunny was not orphaned. He was told by taking the bunny he was doing more harm than good.

  24. I've heard rabbits make good pets. They will use litter boxes and come when called.

  25. Aw I love it when animals get all snuggly with a little baby animal.. it's soooo cute! Love that Urban Decay polish, I'm guessing it's sheer which is why you added a base?

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMGoodness, Way too cute!!!! Just so precious how Rolo wanted to snuggle. ♥ I'm not sure if my chihuahua would have been that sweet. Mine is way too jealous of me. You're right, what's a few mani scratches compares to the cuteness?

    ReplyDelete
  27. CUTEST PICTURES EVER!!!! My dog tries to do that with my cats but he is a whoooole lot bigger than them and I don't think he realizes that! Haha :) As for the mani it is also really cute! I love the color combo :) I love dark/navy blues but I don't have many. I may have to add this one to my collection!!! :)

  28. Unbearably adorable and totally worth a dented manicure.

  29. Baby bunnies die from heart attacks really easily... It would probably be better if you didn't let it near your dog, especially considering it may have something your dog could catch. It should go to a wild life rehab.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh my gosh the cuddling pics are so adorable!!!! Love the mani too :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I squealed like a girl when I saw the two of them together..it doesn't get much cuter that that!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I know, we have used the word "cute" much too often here, but it just is incredibly cute *gg*
    I wouldn't even consider this a dented mani, it's a unique perforated and autographed bunny-mani *g*

    umm ... but ... I got 2 questions *g* is it normal for a 2-week-old-bunny to eat stuff? shouldn't they get some kind of special milk or something? and if your friend is going to keep it, she has to get junior vaccinated against rabies and such, and worms, and .. uh ... dunno. Sicknesses rabbits can get or spread. Imagine your Rolo gets rabies from a cute cuddly snuggly bunny :(((

    But I would have done the same. I'd also offered bunnysitting and I wouldn't have kept my dog away (I have a white-brown shih-tzu called Lennox) ...

  33. OMG that is the cutest thing ever!

  36. Junior is precious! But.. um.. I'm truly not trying to be mean/cruel/insensitive/offensive here, but.. it was probably better for your neighbor to have left him where he was. Not that you had control over that, I'm not blaming you in any way.. but I just wanted to share my 2 cents.

    My hubby is a Senior Registered (State Licensed) Vet Tech with 11 years of field experience and plans to go to Vet School. He has worked at an emergency vet clinic that also does wildlife rehabilitation for the last 4 years. They get sooooo many baby wild animals brought in by people who find them seemingly "alone" and pick them up to "save" them. However, what they don't understand is that Mom is actually probably watching them nearby. Moms leave their babies somewhere safe while they go look for food.. and if baby is picked up and taken away, then their whole "learning how to be a normal adult animal" life is ruined and they then have to be rehabilitated before they can be released. And even if you pick baby up and then put him back.. Mom will most likely abandon him because of your scent being on him. It's pretty sad when you think about it.

    Again, I'm not blaming your neighbor or you. And I don't know the situation. If Junior was in obvious and imminent danger, of course he should be saved.. but I just wanted to spread some awareness about the consequences wild animals have to deal with for our actions. Because we don't always know what's best like we *think* we do.

    Love your blog, love the mani! I didn't even know Urban Decay MADE polish. Um, where have I been?!

  37. Thanks you guys, i just love the little guy.

    As I do appreciate all of your concerns about taking him, and the possibility that his mother was around, that sadly was probably not the case. He had been hiding in a corner outside her building for close to 48 hours, after we had terrible storms. I am aware that had it just been outside for a few hours, the mother would have come back. I didn't give all the details in my post, because I didn't feel the need to. She did call animal rescue, a couple of SPCA's, and did tons of research. She even aquired some goats milk and dropper, as recommended by a vet,that she phoned. Lettuce was fine too, as long as it wasn't iceberg. I or she would never take a baby on a whim unless necessary. No place that she contacted would take him though, so she is doing what she can to save him.

  38. I hope you didn't take offense to my post. As I said, I didn't know the situation, and after hearing the full story I think she definitely made the right decision. I also highly applaud y'all for doing research instead of just feeding the cute baby bunny some noms, haha.

    I just wanted to spread some awareness because like I said, it's a common misconception that baby animals need our help when they usually don't.

    But I'm glad to see that Junior is in such a happy and safe home. I'm sure he's getting lots of love! Here's to him making a safe recovery and having a successful re-release into the wild! ♥

    PS - Hope you made it through the storms okay!

  42. How cute!! Wow, I hope he survives.

  43. Junior is adorable! I am partial to rodents--I have 10 pet chinchillas lol! I think the polish Bruise is perfect for your dented mani! I also think it was very nice of you to watch Junior while your friend was at work. I rescued 4 baby bunnies a few years ago after their mother was killed by a jackwagon neighbor. I was able to save 3 of them and get them to a nature preserve when they were fully grown.

  44. Mandy, oh no, but I had also received quit a few emails, asking and assuming that she had just found it one day and took it, so I just wanted to clarify to you guys.

  46. The bunny is cute but be careful with them. My cats bring them in every Spring and I have to rescue them, but man they have tons of fleas! My friend also told me they can have ticks too. Anyways, be careful with them =)
