A fluffy whisker-twitching bunny for Easter?

Reconsider – a chocolate rabbit might be a better choice. Some issues to consider about adopting a real bunny: allergies (dander, hay), they’re sexually mature after 4-5 months, veterinary costs, always nibbling since their teeth are always growing, litter box needs, daily exercising needs, don’t like to be held, don’t like to be around frenetic children (frightened since they’re prey in the wild), can live 10-12 years, yearly expenses (annual exams, nail trimming, food, litter), more.
