When Easter is around the corner, many people consider buying a pet rabbit, sometimes on a whim or as a gift for small children. While rabbits do make wonderful indoor companions (who can be litter-trained, just like cats), people should take the time to learn the reality of pet rabbit ownership.
The Cheezburger Network has launched a new seasonal site devoted to photos of um… interesting… Easter bunnies. You know what I’m talking about- we’ve all seen them at the local malls. Even though actual bunnies are quite cute, there are (and have always been) a ton of creepy/scary-looking Easter bunny costumes out there…
Enjoy: Sketchy Bunnies
The House Rabbit Society of Missouri has recently taken into their care a rabbit named Easter. He was found by a man in his backyard and was seriously injured. Unfortunately Easter has needed major surgery, including the amputation of a back leg. According to the HRS of Missouri, Easter has a strong will to survive and sweet personality.
The surgery is quite expensive and the HRS of Missouri is seeking donations to help defray the cost.
You can read the whole story and donate at their website: www.hrsmostl.org.
Here are some wonderful alternatives to getting a real bunny on a whim for Easter:

Happy Easter from your friends at MyHouseRabbit.com!
Here’s a cute photo we came across today.
As Easter approaches, it is good to spread the message that:
1. Rabbits are not disposable, low-maintenance pets
2. With proper care, rabbits can live around 15 years
3. There are many homeless rabbits in need of forever homes, so it is better to adopt a rabbit rather than buy one.
Found Animals Foundation, Inc. has partnered with rescues in the Los Angeles area to help adopt out the overwhelming number of homeless rabbits by offering a LIVE streaming BunnyCam showing many of the adoptable rabbits in the area.

Easter is just around the corner, and hopefully many of you are aware of the Make Mine Chocolate campaign which advocates giving chocolate bunnies instead of real bunnies as gifts. To extend upon that theme, here is a list of other Easter Bunny confections you may enjoy!
- Easter Bunny Cupcakes
These look adorable and seem fairly easy to construct.
- Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies
This is a recipe from Pillsbury that doesn’t require a cookie cutter for the shape.
- Easter Bunny Cake
Another easy bunny construction that doesn’t require a special cake pan- just a round one. (A little different from the Easter Bunny cake recipe I posted about last year.)
