The January Cure: Bunny Space Rejuvenated

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:

Bunnies Rescued from Fire

Firefighters with rabbit

Firefighters came to the rescue of a Florida woman and her four rabbits when her house caught on fire.  As smoke was coming from the door and front window, the rescue team placed a ladder to the second floor bedroom window.

Everyone was fine, but one of the rabbits was given oxygen through a pet oxygen mask.

E.A.R.S Finds Sanctuary for Some Canmore Bunnies

Earth Animal Rescue Society (E.A.R.S.), the group that organized the transportation of over 200 feral rabbits from the Canadian town of Canmore to permanent sanctuary homes last year, is at work again. The town is still trying to manage a booming feral rabbit population which they say attracts coyotes and cougars to the area.  Recently, they have begun trapping and gassing the rabbits.

Susan Vickery of E.A.R.S has found a couple with a farmhouse northwest of Calgary who can provide permanent sanctuary to 50 rabbits.

“They’ve had a lot of dealings with rabbits themselves over the years,” Vickery said Tuesday. “They enjoy them. They know their nature. And they respect their right to live.”
