Live-blogging 13 Hours of Rabbit Webcam
by Nadia Chaudhury
“This is Nadia — she really likes bunnies.”
That’s how the eight-year-old girl I’ve babysat for years introduces me to her friends, and it’s true. For instance, I maintain my own rabbit site where I post rabbit-related pictures, quotes, videos, and links. The site is also where I discovered Roebling the Brooklyn Bunny, a rabbit who’s the star of his very own webcam site — a “pet (GET IT?) project” run by his owners, graphic designers Kevin Dresser and Kate Johnson — and this past Sunday I spent 13 hours live-blogging Roebling’s comings and goings.
He is in motion.
Roebling sets to work unraveling blankets.
Roebling goes back into his little box.
A rare sighting of bunny ears up close.
What does he hear?
Back to the task of the day.
Roebling takes a grooming break — one of many.
Roebling enjoys a lunchtime salad.
In the afternoon Roebling naps.
Later, he stretches and displays his bunny-butt.
A friend rolls him into a burrito.
Break for hay.
Roebling thinks he’s hiding, but I can see him going to the bathroom.
My day with Roebling is over, but there’s always tomorrow.
