Tofu Tuesday: I am not a toy

Easter is an odd time for a non-religious rabbit enthusiast. On one hand, there are bunny-themed displays everywhere (yay!) and on the other my heart breaks because many families hop off to the pet store to get themselves their very own Easter bunny for the holidays. In a few months time, when those Easter bunnies are no longer a novelty or hit puberty (and start humping), or become too big or feisty for small children to handle, the Easter bunnies are abandoned, neglected or dumped. Animal shelters are full of rabbits after Easter. It happens every year. A rabbit is a commitment, not a disposable party decoration to be forgotten once the season is over. If you’re only looking for something to decorate your holiday, please consider a soft toy rabbit or chocolate rabbit instead. Please inform your friends and family if they are thinking of getting an Easter bunny. Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.

Tofu Tuesday: Easter Bunny

Like most bunnies, Tofu has a sweet tooth and adores raisins and bread. Neither are good for rabbits but can be viewed as occasional treats. Tofu goes crazy for hot cross buns and a single bun can transform this usually mild-mannered lagomorph into a common thief. One Easter, I left a plastic-wrapped hot cross bun in my handbag which was on a chair near our front door. The next morning, half the bun was found under our bed in our bedroom. Tofu had sniffed out the bun, foraged for it in my bag and carried his trophy to the bedroom to enjoy. We now know to keep treats like these firmly out of reach. For those that are considering adopting a rabbit just for Easter, please don’t. Rabbits are not a holiday decoration. Animal shelters become inundated with unwanted rabbits shortly after Easter as kids and families move on. Parents with seemingly innocent intentions purchase a rabbit for Easter, only to get rid of it when the season is over. This is irresponsible and teaches …
