Throwback: Found but Still Lost

Around this time every year, I publish a story that I wrote in 2016… a reminder to some, new knowledge to others, about why Rescue exists. We won’t stop until they are all safe and loved. Found but Still Lost I am the initial point of contact when someone emails information@longislandrabbitrescue.org.  This month, the number… Continue reading Throwback: Found but Still Lost

Theodora

It’s about time that you meet Theodora. We started by taking the overflow when the usual bunny-sitters were booked. Then, the bunny-sitters moved to Florida so there was more need for our services.

I’ve been asked the question “Why rabbits?” in a variety of contexts over the five years that I’ve been a bunny-mom and subsequently a rescuer.  I typically blink… Continue reading Throwback: Why Rabbits?

Instinct & Acceptance

My coach’s coach says, “Your spiritual DNA is perfect.” He’s talking about you. And you. And every being. On that note, I’m thinking about instinct and acceptance. When Tater Tot was alive, he loved to snuggle, to dill eat and to rip up the living room carpet. He would tear out the fibers one by… Continue reading Instinct & Acceptance
