||Three years old|
||Huntsville, Alabama, USA|
I'm Mrs. Brighton, and what makes me special is that I am the Education
Bunny for a rabbit rescue group called Huntsville Friends of Rabbits! I help
them teach people about rabbit behavior and care. I was found wandering
loose in a trailer park by some nice ladies who called Huntsville Friends of
Rabbits about me. Of course they took me in, and got me a thorough vet check up.
Although I was in pretty good shape they discovered I had a thyroid problem
which makes me quite hyperactive! It doesn't bother me at all, but it does
need to be monitored. So it was decided that, since I was also a very
friendly and outgoing girl, I should stay at the rescue and help them
educate people about bunnies instead of being adopted out. This made me very
happy - I love my rescue group! And I get to go to fun places and meet nice
people. I even met a police offer once! He arrested me for being indecently
cute in public - but then he let me go for good behavior!!
When I'm not helping teach people about rabbits, I love to dress up in
silly clothes (most bunnies don't like this but I do!)and I love playing
with my toys and exploring. I live in a big three story bunny condo! I need
lots of room to run around! I would like to take this opportunity to tell
people that if they are thinking about getting a bunny for Easter, they
should do lots of research. Bunnies may be very cute, but they are
complicated and expensive, too. And not all bunnies are as friendly and
outgoing as I am. Most are very shy and don't do well with children. In
fact, some bunnies even bite when they are afraid.
Rabbits can also live for ten to twelve years, and require vet care just like cats
and dogs. So please think twice about getting an Easter bunny for a child.
Instead, you can feast your eyes on me - and buy your child a toy bunny instead!!
