Rabbits don't make good Christmas presents.

It's that time of the year again when all of the classified sites are flooded with people selling baby rabbits (along with a bunch of other animals) as "great holiday gifts." Let me just emphasize that a living, breathing creature with a unique set of needs that requires care every single day of someone's life is not a good surprise to spring on someone unexpectedly. I am sure many people would be thrilled initially with an adorable baby bunny, but assuming they already have the supplies ($$ if they don't), you are essentially forcing them into a commitment that requires them to provide food, water, a clean cage, etc. to this new addition every single day for potentially the next eight to twelve YEARS.

The best Christmas gifts are not alive. Thank you! :)
