As Easter approaches I just thought I would say a few words about buying your child a bunny for Easter. Please consider that as with all pets, they require a lifetime commitment.
It’s easy to get caught up in how cute bunnies are and what a great gift it would be, but let me offer this, once the novelty has worn off who will take care of that bunny? Most often a few weeks after Easter bunnies are surrendered to animal control or shelters, pet stores make you think it is such a great idea, but in reality…, not so much!
Instead a chocolate bunny is great alternative, they can fawn over how cute they are, and then they get to enjoy the sweet taste of chocolate, who wouldn’t love that!
If you want a bunny for your child at any other time of the year, just make sure you and your child are ready for the responsibility that comes with owing a pet. shelters are a great place to look if you have decided that a bunny is the right pet for you.
Have a great Easter everyone!
