Whenever Glenda gets a treat in this house, she grabs it and runs, flicking her feet. She scuttles to a corner where she can chow down without any chance of anyone else getting it, not that anyone would try!
Yesterday our Long Island newspaper, Newsday, published my letter to their new pet columnist asking her to discourage live rabbits as Easter presents to children. It’s very important to me to help prevent rabbits from becoming impulse purchases and instead encourage adopting and fostering from local rescue groups. Too few people realize that rabbits are at least a 10 year commitment like a dog or cat, and not a toy for children to play with until they get bored. Please share this advice with anything you know who may be thinking of getting a rabbit, for any reason. Rabbits everywhere will thank you!
