After Hurricane Sandy swept through My House Rabbit headquarters in New London, CT, some structural damage did occur.
Ok actually, that wasn’t caused by the storm. The bunnies happily continued on their normal business of renovating their cardboard castle as the hurricane raged outside. They don’t seem to pay attention to keeping the structural supports.
But in all seriousness, our area did sustain some pretty serious flooding and strong winds which caused a lot of destruction. We consider ourselves pretty lucky that we live pretty high up on a hill so we were safe from the coastal floods caused by the converging weather systems and the presence of a full moon.
We lost power yesterday afternoon (and continue to be powerless). We also had several big branches fall down, and we wondered if the tree was going to get uprooted and tip onto our house. The pavement by the roots looked cracked like the tree was trying to tilt.
But all in all, we made out pretty well considering. Hope everyone else on the east coast fared as well or better!
Here’s a special pumpkin we carved for bunny lovers for this year!
A very elusive species of rabbit was caught on camera by a group of researchers who were in Sumatra studying wild cats.
According to Jennifer McCarthy, lead author and doctoral candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst:
As part of my dissertation research on the four felids, or cats, we also happened to get pictures of this very rare rabbit. There had been a few camera-trap photos seen of it before, but very, very rarely. We wanted to take these observations a step further, so we worked with colleagues from the University of Delaware and the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Indonesia Program to contact every researcher we knew throughout Sumatra who was doing camera-trap research, probably 20 or 30 people. This gave us good coverage of the island.
This unique striped rabbit was first photographed in 1998 and has been rarely seen since.

Marie Mead’s Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirits, a beautiful book filled with uplifting stories about rescued rabbits, has gotten even better! A revised edition, being released this month, contains five new stories and two new articles.
From the author:
The impetus behind the revision is the excellent article titled “Modeling Love and Respect for a Classroom Rabbit,” written by elementary teacher Cheryl Rosemary Abbott. It provides interesting, down-to-earth guidance for teachers—and parents—about introducing children to a rabbit, bunny-proofing, rules for everyone’s safety, and the all-important issue of role-modeling love, respect, and responsibility.
