Rabbits, bunnies, and chics are often purchased during the Christian celebration of Easter as gifts for their children. Shortly thereafter they are then dumped into local kill shelters as unwanted “pets” and are slaughtered by kill shelters just like any other unwanted/abandoned cat, or dog, and this is very sad.
First, please do not purchase a rabbit when you can adopt one from the local shelter.
Secondly, don’t adopt/purchase a rabbit unless you are committed to a life long relationship.
Thirdly, rabbits are easily trained, kept, maintained and make for very intelligent pets – indoors, and outdoors.
Fourthly, rabbits can easily live to be 8 to 12 years old.
Fifthly, rabbits should not be left running loose in your house alone unless you have rabbit proofed it. They can chew on wires, and not only hurt themselves, but accidentally cause fires, or other damage.
Sixthly, again, do not let your rabbit run around the house alone with dogs, cats, and other predator creatures, who may very well accidentally harm, or kill the rabbit, if their natural instincts are triggered.
So, with that in mind….
Have a great day, and remember that “some bunny loves you…”
