Cute and cuddly rabbits are better in chocolate form than as house pets.
If you're contemplating buying a pet rabbit just in time for Easter, think twice before you bring Bugs Bunny into your home. According to Mary Cotter, the vice president and education/outreach director of the House Rabbit Society, bunnies are not as easy to care for as you think.
"People buy them thinking they're great, low-maintenance starter pets, but that's a misconception," Cotter says. "[Bunnies are] closer to dogs and cats than they are to the so-called 'pocket pets.'"
Cotter adds that while some rabbits can be affectionate, most don't like to be held, and they prefer to be left alone. (So much for that stereotype!)
P.S. We can't think of any pets we'd put in our pockets, but maybe that's just us.
