My cat dragged in a baby rabbit the other day. He is very small but has a ful set of fur eyes completely open and his ears are standing up. He has been eating little bits of carrot that i have gave him and some greens. I have noticed that his bad left leg is being ragged around and appears to be broken. He does not seem to be in pain but it is defiantly broken. Im not sure what to do? Should i try and bandage it up ?

Poor thing! If the rabbit indeed has a broken leg, she (he?) needs veterinary care as soon as possible. Do not bandage the leg up yourself — you can cause more harm than good.
