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!
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE BE AN INFORMED RABBIT OWNER THEY ARE NOT TOYS
|Mom:||So... how ARE your classes? Doing well, I assume.|
|Frosh:||I'm gonna, like, fail everything.|
|Mom:||What do you mean? Do you need a tutor? Honey, just let us know.|
|Frosh:||No, I need my books.|
|Mom:||But you got all that loan money. And your dad and I have given you over $4,000. What did you do with it?!|
|Frosh:||No, I still have it. The teacher must have passed them out on the first day. I wasn't here, remember? You had to take me on your stupid cruise and now I don't have my stupid books because I wasn't here on the first day.|
|Mom:||Uh, Connor? You have to buy them.|
|Frosh:||Yeah, now that I missed the teacher passing them out. There must not be enough to go around. I'm not spending all my money on stupid books.|
|Mom:||Did you ask the others where they got their book?|
|Frosh:||No, they'll know I was dumb and missed the first day and so now I have to buy my books like a lame asshole.|
|Mom:||Don't swear. Didn't you know in college, you BUY your books? All of them. You have to buy them. They don't give them out like in high school.|
|Frosh:||No, I didn't KNOW that because you and dad never TOLD me. That's dumb. Why should I buy books? I hate books. It's the teacher's job to teach me stuff. If they want me to learn stuff from books, they should buy them.|
|Mom:||*looks around* Look, honey, the bookstore is still open! Let's go get you your books!|
|Frosh:||Whatever. Only if you get me an iPad to like, read them on.|
|Me:||*looks up from typing this, facepalms* Did that just fucking happen?|
