Easter fluffy battle

They are both cute, so lots will be purchased for the Easter holiday.
Within three months after the holiday, the animal shelters will be flooded with those bunnies who have been able to survive that long.

STOP - These are not kids' toys.

They are animals, and rabbits can live up to 10 years or more - if properly cared for.
If not, you can cause them immeasurable pain before they die.

Rabbits cannot be abandoned to a little cage in the garage because you lost interest.
They need social contact and to run around inside for HOURS EVERY DAY, in the morning and again in the evening.

Rabbits do not eat ONLY pellets and too much carrot is bad for them.
They need fresh HAY (80+% of their diet) and water 24/7, and to be fed some fresh greens and limited pellets TWICE A DAY.

Rabbit are the third most abandoned pet, right after cats and dogs.
You can not abandon them in the wild - domesticated rabbits have no coping skills for that.

Please, if you want a bunny for a pet, contact your local chapter of The House Rabbit Society and FIRST LEARN about the responsibility you are assuming.
Then decide if you want this pet.

Those of you who understand rabbits, please spread the word. Thank you.

  1. So true! My heart breaks thinking of such sweet souls sitting alone, hungry, scared, thirsty, and hurting from no exercise and their feet on urine or wire... Do not do this to them, people! They are smart and caring creatures!

  2. I just seen a commercial selling Chocolate bunnies for Aldi,there is a child saying I like eating this bunny(Lint bunny) and I like eating this bunny(Aldi choc bunny) then she picks this baby lop eared bunny and puts it on the table saying but I don't like eating Roger...a bit of a mixed message don't you think?

    1. Yes, agreed.
      Separately, just added a chocolate zombie bunny to the Bunny Things page.

  3. Here's to hoping for a wiser set of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles...this year!

  4. We need to repeat this message every year
