Easter Reminder: Bunnies are not Toys

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:

Gus Says: Bunnies aren't toys, so don't give them as gifts for Easter

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.

    Please excuse my faux paw. I forgot to ask you before I linked this to my facebook account? I’ve tried to link some bunny awareness each day for the past couple of days. I hope that’s ok with you? If not I’ll take it down. Also hope you don’t mind if I link another tomorrow? I just LOVE these short, sweet, Easter PSAs!

    Lisa, you can go ahead and link anything you like here on your facebook thingy. We want bunny awareness spread as far as we can get it!

    Well Madison, I can tell you that I am real, and I am a bunny – a bunny rabbit. Rabbits are real living things that aren’t toys to be played with or gifts to be given.

    I’m sorry that you don’t like bunnies, but it’s OK, some people don’t like bunnies. Just like some bunnies don’t like people.

    As for the “Easter Bunny,” well… I’m not saying whether he’s real or not. It’s a secret to everybody!
