As Easter is coming up, I'd like to take a moment to say that bunnies are cute but also huge dickheads. They're rarely docile and cuddly and will absolutely destroy everything you love.

They live 10+ years, cost as much as a dog, and need a lot of time and attention. 75% of rabbits in the UK are neglected and many bought at Easter don't even make it to a year old.

Know what you're getting into, or stick with chocolate.

Ruining bunnies for everyone is one of the strongest parts of my brand, I'm v proud

@anarchiv and are there any bunny nipple problems? Nope. We excel here at nipple solutions, for all your nipple needs.

@sophia I'm not an expert on bunny nipples but I'll trust you on this.

@sophia Also they eat their own partially digested poop (they're supposed to as part of normal digestion). If you want a bunny because you think it's cute, reconsider whether you will still think it's cute after watching it eat shit every day.

@sophia @activationfxn this one makes very loud smacking sounds when he is eating his. I swear you can hear it across the room.

@activationfxn OTOH, their normal poop is solid and very easy to clean up with a vacuum. @sophia

@ben @sophia the way to fit those two things together is of course lynnesbian

@sophia Twenty seven years ago, my future sister-in-law's mini-lop leapt up from the ground and almost bit off my left nipple.

Bunnies are trouble.

@mwlucas @sophia one of my class mates had lost part a finger to a bunny that did not appreciate his attention.

Well, actually not, that's why I'm asking, just in case…


I still can't get over the fact that people buy them because of holidays!

adopting an animal is a serious commitment!

@mal @sophia So true! Don't get a bunny (or any animal) for Easter (or any holiday), get a bunny if you've done the necessary research and preparation and you're serious about making the commitment.

@sophia I always toy with getting a rabbit but I know I don't have the time really so instead I look at rabbit photos and come up with names.

Yep, knowing what you're getting into is important, impulse buying pets is never a good idea.

I really want a bunny some day, but I did enough research to determine I'm not in a place to have one yet and I'll have to wait. (Which apparently even dream-me has accepted, given I had a dream last night about rescuing a bunny and finding her a new home bc I couldn't keep her.)

@sophia My ex had a bunny and she was amazing but also a dick at times, I really miss that little gal.

@calv they're lovely and I adore them but I am never ever having one again. We've got a brain debated staffy and hyperactive puppy and the bunnies are more work

@sophia pets are less regulated than cars and they're living beings!

@FimbulFlower yeah, you can just get a bunny from a pet store, no vetting to see if you know what you're doing. Most pet stores don't know/can't advise properly 😬

@sophia sophhia, the "RWAF" link is broken!! i was trying to get a picture of how big they should be since i'm bad at measure units. not getting a bunny anyway but this got me curious

@rond thank you for the heads up. Looks like there's been a revision to their advice recently too

@sophia we as a society need to move beyond the idea of pets as surprise gifts, it's terrible to treat animals as items that can be given or taken at will

@sophia i emphatically agree with every word of this accurate statement
