And that poor, big baby isn't going to get any
lighter in that diet
Don't you wish you could educate people sometimes? I was in Blue Seal, picking up some Oxbow for the bunnies, and raw food for the kitties, and there was this family getting some things for their cat. While the dad is looking for a flea collar (not ideal, but whatever), the kids -three, between the ages of 3 and 10- are opening the rabbit's cages and pulling them out.
First, I felt like telling them to leave the rabbits the heck alone, most don't like to be held. And these poor buns didn't look a day over 5 weeks.
Then they were talking about wanting a bunny, and their dad's like 'no, I just got you a cat', and they go back and forth (I swear I heard him say something like, "I got the cat, I can get rid of it if I want."
) I felt like interjecting and saying that a bunny needs just as much care as a cat, and will be around for the next 10 or so years, but thankfully I don't think they plan on getting one. I've seen that play out so many times in so many different pet stores, it makes me want to scream.
