About the Author

Lucile C. Moore, PhD, is the author of A House Rabbit Primer and numerous articles on the history, folklore, and care of rabbits. In the course of her combined professional and personal lives she has cared for over 750 domestic rabbits of various breeds, and currently shares her home with fourteen house rabbits. She lives on ten acres outside Kanab, Utah, among a host of jackrabbits and cottontails.

Kathy Smith is the author of Rabbit Health in the 21st Century , which she wrote after losing her beloved rabbit, Smokey, to cancer. The medical challenges of another very special bunny, Murray, led Kathy to begin using alternative treatments in conjunction with traditional veterinary care.
