The Brooklyn Bunny website is one of the first and currently the longest running rabbit webcams.[1]


The Brooklyn Bunny[2] website is a rabbit webcam that first went live on August 28, 2005. The website is a project of designers Kevin Dresser[3] and Kate Johnson of the design firm Dresser Johnson.[4][failed verification] The idea was initiated when the two Brooklyn-based designers discussed starting a rabbit pet-sitting business. The idea was to have two live webcams so rabbit owners could check in on their rabbit via the internet. However, the pet-sitting business was scrapped when they offered to care for a foster rabbit.[citation needed] The idea of the Brooklyn Bunny website was born when they became attached to the Dwarf Hotot rabbit,[5] which they decided to name Roebling after John A. Roebling, designer of the Brooklyn Bridge.


Roebling[6] is the name of the rabbit star of Brooklyn Bunny.[7] He is named after the designer of the Brooklyn Bridge, John A. Roebling. Roebling is a Dwarf Hotot breed of rabbit.
