The January Cure: Bunny Space Rejuvenated

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Here at My House Rabbit headquarters, we’re taking part in Apartment Therapy’s The January Cure. The idea is to spend a little time each day this month decluttering and organizing various rooms in our home. Of course, we had to include the bunny space on our list.

We started by recycling some of their overly-renovated cardboard castles and removing some of our underused items from the area. We then took the opportunity to tend to the flooring. After a thorough vacuuming, we shampooed the carpet with eco-friendly carpet detergent and a steam vac. What a difference!

Here is part of the rabbits’ space, decluttered with newly-shampooed carpets.

With the space now clean and decluttered, the fun began!  We rearranged the bunnies’ remaining cardboard castles and tunnels, which is always a delight for them. The change in scenery equates to a whole new playground for them.

Here they are enjoying their “new” space:

The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

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!

Rare Sumatran Striped Rabbit Caught on Camera

Friday, June 1st, 2012

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.
