It’s almost Easter again, which is traditionally the time of year I try to remind people that Bunnies are not Toys. We are real, living creatures that need love, care, and attention – and not just for a little while when we’re small and cute.
Yet some people still insist on giving baby bunnies as gifts to children, just because it’s Easter.
Well, I think you know what I have to say about that:
You wouldn’t give someone a cat or a dog as an Easter gift, so why would you give a rabbit?
I was “given” as a gift for Easter and then abandoned when the people I was given to got tired of caring for me (just shortly after Easter). I don’t want to see that happen to anybun again, which is why I keep bringing up this subject ever year.
Instead of giving a live rabbit, people should just stick to chocolate ones, or stuffed toys. That’ll make Easter a happier time for everyone.
