Babbitty-Rabbitty Micro Sanctuary is operated by Anna (Hungarian) and Lukas (Lithuanian), a couple currently living happily in Lithuania.
I am a passionate naturalist, vegan for 4 years, journalist, science researcher and machine nut at heart. I was born in Lithuania and grew up on a small family farm later studied in Denmark. I work as a PhD in Lithuania now, researching biomass waste utilization via by-product synthesis (aka. how to make foam, glue and insulation from poop).
I am a compassionate vegan advocate (vegan for 4 years), technical designer, coach, and entrepreneur. Graduated as a Construction Architect and took Nutrition, Coaching, and Entrepreneurial courses. I work as a Training Specialist, design escape rooms, organize vegan cooking classes, and hold workshops on veganism, sustainable living, and social entrepreneurship.
The many Babbitty-Rabbitty inhabitants:
Out of urgent need we rescued 16 rabbits from a farm and later this year two broken-legged chickens, Juoda and Rosehip.
The rabbits lived in small, closed wooden boxes and never saw daylight… Some of the rabbits were in a rather poor condition beyond being able to be saved, including Babbit, who was a truly special, adorable, cheeky, extremely friendly and adventurous boy… rest his amazing, wonderful soul. Some of them are still in a very fragile condition and they need to receive constant veterinary checks, attendance, vaccination, love. Their weakness might be the result of their previous living condition or their inbreeding… We cannot be sure, but maybe the combination of circumstances weakened their ability to maintain a strong immune system and resistance to diseases.
As the rabbits were kept in small individual wooden boxes they have not much trust or liking of humans, we have to be very very patient with them. They prefer to be with each other rather than with us 🙂 but we don’t mind until they are happy in each other’s company. They formed their own little community, created friendships and bonds, which is lovely to witness.
Rosehip (Csipke in Hungarian) came from a family farm where we found her with a broken leg. She received a life-saving surgery where a fantastic vet mended her leg. She is able to walk now again and she is truly the soul (and sound 😉 ) of our home…
Juoda (Miss Black) also came with a broken leg, but her leg was beyond repair. It was broken for a long time and it healed wrongly. She is able to walk but she is disabled for life… However, she has a strong and adorable spirit! We love having her around! She is much (!) calmer and wiser then Csipke.
