The reviews are in!

It’s been just a few weeks since we launched Hello, My Name is Bunny! London and we’re thrilled by the feedback we’ve received from customers and the media.

Hello, My Name is Bunny! London released in January 2019

Here’s what they say

Ingrid King, editor of The Conscious Cat said: “…this beautifully illustrated and equally beautifully written story will charm children and adults alike. I was pulled into the story from the very first page. As was the case with the first book, the antics of Bunny and her friends had me smiling throughout the book.”  Read her full review here.

And 10-year-old YouTube sensation @NPStation shared her enthusiastic five-minute review of the book in amazing detail!  You can view what she said here.

Customers tell us that they especially love the London illustrations and the touching friendship of Bunny, Lily, Goldy, and Rocky! Hello, My Name is Bunny! London is the second book in the Hello, My Name is Bunny! series, and it’s ideal for children aged six and above, and cat-lovers of EVERY age!

Coming up!

Kickin’ into spring with new London Bus Organic Catnip Kickers!

We love collaborating! It creates unexpected friendships and possibilities. That’s why we’re so excited to share our NEW London Bus Organic Catnip Kicker created exclusively for us in collaboration with Etsy’s ameowmazing Want More Meows.

Why a London bus? Well, we chose this London icon to celebrate the launch of Hello, My Name is Bunny! London.   

This week I interviewed Vani who is the creative force behind Want More Meows, and she’s a passionate animal welfare advocate who’s committed to helping make life better for homeless cats.

A chat with Want More Meows

Q: Hi Vani! I LOVE your toys! What inspired you to create Want More Meows?

A: Well, Bunny, there’s only one answer to this question – CATS! It started when I was volunteering at a cat shelter and saw the kinds of toys there. I was concerned about plastic parts, glue and long strings that can be harmful. I thought why can’t the toys be prettier, more eco-friendly and more safe? And so, I went home and started to make toys! They weren’t very pretty at first but when I took them to the cats at the shelter, they LOVED them. And that’s how it all started.

The joy of fostering

Q: Tell us about your cats and your foster work

A: Right now, we have three kitties. Jacqueline Starlight (Kiwi) and Fifi La Cuteness are our official furkids. Puddles is our foster baby who might well become an official furkid, too! He came to us physically and emotionally wounded but now he’s healing and he loves to play! I feel very connected to him. Jacqueline is a little troublemaker who also loves to play and is very talkative, especially when she’s hungry. And Fifi La Cuteness is a true New Yorker. Actually, she was semi-feral when we adopted her, so it took a couple of years, and lots of nurturing from us before she would allow hugs. Now she loves them. She’s a wonderful example of how time and love can transform feral and semi-feral cats.

There’s so much more I wanted to ask Vani, but we’ve run out of time for now. And so, we will continue our chat another time!

You can find Hello, My Name is Bunny! London and Bunny’s London Bus Organic Catnip Kicker here. $5 from every book sold, and $1 from every Kicker sold goes to our furriends KittyKind.

Introducing Hello, My Name is Bunny! London

When we adopted Bunny from KittyKind, we were instantly struck by her sweet nature. It led us to imagine what she would do to pay forward her good fortune, if given half the chance. The Hello, My Name is Bunny! book series is the result of those imaginings! Our goal remains the same today: To entertain kids while helping them understand the power of kindness, and to raise funds for shelter groups across the U.S.

We’re so proud that the first book in the series won a 2018 New York City Big Book Award and was named a Top Ten Cat-Themed Book by The Conscious Cat blog. And now, with this week’s launch of Hello, My Name is Bunny! London we continue to dream big. We hope you’ll love it as much as we love Bunny!  And remember you help, too, because we donate $5 from every book you buy to KittyKind and to other U.S. shelter and rescue groups. There are too many homeless cats in our country, and around the world, and we know that every contribution helps.

Thanks so much for being on this pawsome journey with us!

Love and Purrs, Matt and Shelley XO (Bunny’s human parents)
