I am a working mom that does volunteer work at a local animal rescue. We tell parents you can't get a bunny, stick this intelligent thing in a cage 24/7 and allow the kids to forget it until it dies, goes crazy from neglect or comes back to us in awful unadoptable shape. In the interview, parents swear up and down their kids will do everything we instruct. We give resources, even our own phone numbers...But you can't always tell which adults are just going along to get it and go home and leave it to 10 yr old. From all of us animal rescues to moms, dads and other SOs...if you got your kid a cute bunny because it is Easter make sure you really care about animals because you will most likely have to care for it so get educated,too. Every rescue will gladly answer your questions..just ask. These animals are smart, fun and have tons of personality.. We are not radical wackjobs..we are doctors, stay at home moms, project managers, teachers volunteering,..asking for common sense and I know other moms feel my pain,too. I hear it often from other smart, compassionate moms. Why wouldn't a parent think this through first?
