Easter is coming up! And it’s a terrible time for pet store bunnies!
Rabbits are marketed as “easy”, short-lived, starter pets, especially during the Easter holidays, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! A healthy, well cared for bunny can live just as long as the average cat or dog- 10-12 years!
What’s more, they have more complex needs than a cat or a dog. Rabbits are prey animals and do not behave or show affection in the same way as predators like cats and dogs; they don’t deal well with being outside-only animals; they can get sad if they’re on their own and don’t receive enough attention; and if they’re bought as a male and female couple, they can start reproducing from as early as 5-6 months of age, and they can carry multiple litters at the same time!
They have a specialised diet (NOT carrots!), need a specialised living area (unless you want all your things to get chewed up!), and they need specialised vets! Caring for them costs as much as caring for a dog!
They’re a big responsibility!
BUNNY SAFETY SIGNAL BOOST BECAUSE BUNNIES ARE IMPORTANTThis goes for chicks too! They don’t stay small and fluffy!
Respect bunnies people, use your heads! Do research before you adopt ANY pet! You are the sole caretaker for any animal you bring into your home! They depend on you for food and care and love and everything else! And don’t buy pets for holidays! Buy pets to love them and enrich your life!
When you get buns, buns rule you, you do not rule the buns. If you want buns, DO YOUR RESEARCH. THEY ARE -NOT- EASY PETS. -note- I have two of them and they are my children don’t even look at me right now, this is so important. I WISH PEOPLE UNDERSTOOD.
Jim Beaver: First day working with Tom Hiddleston. He is my ideal as an actor: brilliant, reliable, human, decent, open, and friendly. He charmed my daughter as he has charmed me. I think my kid charmed him, too. This is a fellow I could joyfully spend the rest of my career working with. He’s that good and that generous.
pretty sure jim beaver is in love with tom hiddleston
I’m pretty sure everyone falls in love with him.
