need help asap
I know this isn't quite the forum to post my question, but I haven't had any help fromthe cybervet and i need urgent help...

How does one take care of tiny motherless rabbits? My bf and I picked up two baby rabbits yesterday, their mother is nowhere to be seen, and we're afraid they'll be eaten by our dogs or frozen to death by the cold front.
They can barely walk straight and their eyes aren't even properly open yet.
What can we do to make sure they become healthy? Do they drink milk?
I've tried to feed them pronutro,milk,lettuce - even special K cereal just to get their tummies full, but to no prevail. We have rabbit food, but they don't seem even remotely interested. I'm just afraid the poor things won't see a good life, and it has just started!!

Any help will do!
Thanks!

Dear Gargoyle
Get kitten milk at the vet and feed them 2x per day
