PERSONAL QUESTION: I know there are a lot of animal lovers that follow me, so I thought one of you may have an answer that could help me. There are a bunch of bunnies in my backyard. They are building their nests for their babies. The yard is fenced in, but a feral cat gets in and is biting off their heads in the middle of the night. We hear the screams, but it’s too late by the time we get outside. Does anyone know what we can do to save the bunnies lives?

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy

  2. So sad about the bunnies. We have deterred stray cats with lemon juice and garlic. One consideration is a motion spritzer—neighbors use them to startle the deer.

  3. Congrats to all!

    Ugh, the poor bunnies! I have no idea. Do you have a dog? Of course you might not want it out all night.

  4. Hi Kathy! Thanks for the announcements and offer to give a Crystal Kite shout out. My board book, LOVE CAN COME IN MANY WAYS is on the list. I’m from the California/Hawaii region. Thanks and take care!

  5. First of all, I am sorry about the bunnies. I wish I had an answer or at least a suggestion. I just wanted to congratulate everyone and thank you, Kathy, for all you do for the kidlit community. You are so appreciated!

  6. Congratulations all! Regarding the bunnies, I don’t know any fence to let momma rabbit in and out and not be acessible to cats. Perhaps contact a local animal group who can trap and relocate the feral cats? I know most do TNR and bring them back to the area they came from . . . I’ve had hawks kill the bunnies in my yard and the screams are terrifying.

  7. Congrats to the book winners! And congrats to all those in the Crystal Kite running. I like the idea of motion spritzers. That would really keep the cats away. Poor bunnies.

  9. Just seeing this email as I was on vacation and off of social media for a few weeks. So sorry about the bunnies, Kathy. I remember as a child finding a bunny in our yard that a stray cat had attacked. My dad and I tried to save it but it died. I wish I had an answer. Relocating the cat seems the best?

    So excited to have won Robin’s book! I think you have my address.
    Thanks for all you do, Kathy!
