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.
Last night I courageously saved a thousand year old couch from the wrath of a scalding cup of tea by positioning my human flesh BETWEEN the couch and the tea. Twice. This morning I poured boiling water in to the teapot to make my morning cup of tea… Sans tea leaves.
…This anxiety is really working out well for me.

Moffat’s Women - Nancy
Nancy is an assertive and caring young woman - a leader, who the homeless children of London look up to with absolute trust. Whether it is using the air raids for a nice meal, forcing Mr Lloyd to let her go after being caught, or singing a transformed soldier to sleep, she is incredibly resourceful and quick on her feet. As a teenage single mother, Nancy has her demons and secrets. But when push comes to shove, she faces them proudly and it is her bravery that saves the world on that day in January 1941.
