Time to start thinking about Easter

Dad came back from the store last night and told me how he saw they had taken down all their valentine’s day stuff and were starting to put up their Easter stuff.

Easter always makes me think even more about all the other bunnies out there who aren’t as lucky as I am (oh and Betsy, too). I don’t like the idea of a holiday that encourages people to buy an animal that they probably aren’t prepared to take care of properly. Bunnies are not throw-away pets!!!

Though on the good side, I have seen an awful lot of other pink-eyed white rabbits out there like me lately:

And those are just the ones I can remember from recently. Hmmmm… maybe we should get together and form a union or something? Maybe the “Bunnihood of Pink-Eyed Rabbits?”

Anyway, dad did see a lot of stuffed toy bunnies at the store – I’d highly recommend people thinking of buying a rabbit “for Easter” to get a stuffed one instead.

If, on the other hand, you really are interested in a long-term relationship with a rabbit, please, please, please adopt rather than buy from a store.

That’s all I have to say on this… for now.

  1. Wow Gus, that was a great post! You are right, we pink-eyed bunnies have to stay together! Mom says she loves my eyes, because they are so expressive.

    You are right about the Easter thing too. There is also a campaign that goes on, called “Make Mine Chocolate” and you can get little ribbons to wear or try to get local pet stores to carry them to help spread the word! Mom wanted me to give you guys the website: http://www.makeminechocolate.org/

  2. Easter makes Mum a bit sad. She thinks of all the bunnies who are bought for “gifts” when we’re little beings NOT gifts! We love the makeminechocolate.org website too!
