Easter 2012

Easter is almost upon us again. It seems crazy to me that people would think getting a baby bunny is a good plan for Easter. Surely it only takes the barest of thought to work out that a rabbit will live much longer than the Easter holidays last. That a real rabbit is a living, eating, pooping, chewing creature that will require ongoing commitments in both time and money. But, every year I see signs go up advertising ‘cute bunnies ready for Easter’ or get emails ‘my daughter really wants a rabbit for Easter when can we pick one up’.

Then just weeks post Easter, rescue centres start receiving the post-Easter influx because the kids are bored already, someone’s allergic, the rabbit doesn’t like being picked up, it makes a mess, it costs money… all things that should have been considered before getting a pet.

So, to help people decide is a rabbit is really what they want for Easter, I’ve put together this handy information graphic:

(feel free to take it and spread it around – I’ll even give you an incentive – see below)

Pop a link in the comments to where you posted this graphic eg facebook, twitter, your blog, website or forum or any other way you’ve spread the message not to buy rabbits for Easter and I’ll add your name to a draw (on Easter Sunday) for a copy of my book.

    It’s a bit like people giving a child a puppy for Christmas. It’s a lot of responsibility to impose on someone. This is a great post and really lays out the information you need to know before deciding to purchase a little bunny. Keep up the good work.
