Choosing your rabbit:
No matter where or what type you pick, be sure to take it to the vet. for a check-up.
Every heard the old saying, "They breed like rabbits"? There is no shortage of rabbits.
If you were a rabbit which would you pick?
1. Have kids pick you up by the ears, chased, yelled at. Then placed in a cage and forgotten about. A slow agonizing death.
2. Placed in a cage with a large snake. Quickly wrapped, pass out from lack of oxygen in seconds.
Think before you buy!!!!!!
