Baby Bunny Nest ~ An Enchanting Discovery!

Look what we uncovered while working at a client’s garden ~

Baby rabbits are called kits or kittens and these look like they are Eastern Cottontails, the most common and widespread species of rabbits in North America.

In the future if I accidentally come upon a similar looking nest, I think I would leave it undisturbed. We were very startled by the sight of the baby wild rabbits after pulling away leaves and the downy soft “lid,” or protective covering, and they very nearly were almost raked!


Pet of the Week

My name is Pee Wee, I am a sweet two-month-old girl kitten with a beautiful grey coat.   I am staying at the Cape Ann Animal Aid located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, Four Paws Lane, Gloucester. (
We have many kittens who have arrived and hope those who would like to donate kitten food would consider it.
Like most kittens, I love toys and I am a purr machine.   I hope you might stop by and visit the kittens and know that
we also have may older cats for adoption, too!

Pet of the Week-Pumpkin Spice

Hi, my name is Pumpkin Spice and I am a playful, sweet and cute two-month-old kitten with a handsome orange coat.   I am here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, Four Paws Lane, Gloucester.   The staff and volunteers are so nice and the shelter is beautiful with lots of room to stroll around, toys, windows and bird feeders to look at!   I am looking forward to being adopted, especially in time for the holidays.

Please check our website at: to learn more about our upcoming events and adoptable cats and dogs.   It is ok to stop by with toys for our shelter animals here.   Everyone says that I am just like my name – sweet and spunky!

Pet of the Week-Big Kitty

Big Kitty

Hello!  My name is Big Kitty, I am part Norwegian Forest.  I am a happy and mellow guy.  I like napping and playing with toys.  I am not so sure about the other cats yet, but my friends here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid said that I am learning to make new friends and those little things; I think they are called kittens.   I love attention and can’t wait to be adopted so I can curl up in a lap.   When the veterinarian did my check-up, they found I have a heart murmur.  My doctor didn’t recommend any treatment right now, but I may need more vet care and monitoring in the future.

If you think we would be a good match, why don’t you stop down to the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester and we talk about how I can fit into your life and make you happier.  Also, I love the Red Sox and will you please wear some Red Sox gear when you come to adopt me so I may recognize you right away!

Pet of the Week-Charlene


Hello!  I heard about the Blessing of the Animals that took place last Sunday in Rockport by The Rev. Karin Wade of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.   I am hoping that next year I will be able to attend with my new family.

I am here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid (CAAA), located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter at Four Paws Lane in Gloucester.  I have just finishing raising my seven sweet babies and they all have been placed in forever homes and now I am ready to be adopted and looking for a family to love me like my Cape Ann Animal Aid family is.

If you would like to learn more about the CAAA, please visit: and even see more photos of me.

After raising seven kittens, I need a little rest and relaxation.   Oh, my name is Charlene!  I am hoping I will be adopted by someone who loves to spoils cats!
