Just read this on another website, it made me cry.

A rabbits chrismas, not everything it seems.

Cinnamon sat in her cage and groomed her foot. She was trying to contain her excitement, but it was so hard! She was to go to her new home today! Some funny tall rabbits with little hair, just like her adopted mummy, had come in and looked around. They had wanted a bunny as a Christmas present for their 7 year old son. They looked at all the bunnies for sale, but they had finally decided on her. It was so exciting!

She hopped around her cage a bit, prancing and preening. All the other rabbits were happy for her. She was going to a new home where she was loved and give love! What could be better!

Soon the funny rabbits came in to get her. A little sadly she said goodbye to her mother and siblings, but nothing could really dampen her excitement! They put her in a shiny new cage. It had a brand new water bottle and a sparkling food dish too! It even had some toys in it for her to play with! Cinamon could control herself no more, and she leapt up in the cage brushing against the top.

They pulled up to a nice house and brought her inside. The boy ran up and exclaimed in joy. He liked her! Oh she was so happy! He took her out and played with her. They had such a grand time that Cinnamon didn't want to stop when it was time for the boy to go to bed. She knew it'd be OK though, because now she had someone to play with for the rest of her life!

The first week was wonderful. The boy, Nathan played with her often and always made sure she had food and water. Then Nathan had to go back to school. Cinnamon understood that he couldn't play as much, but sometimes she really wished he could be on vacation again. He still played with her pretty often, and he always took care of her, but each day he seemed to get less and less interested in her.

She grew into a healthy adult bunny, though now Nathan didn't handle her much. One day he even forgot to feed her. She spent the night curled up in her cage, hunger making her stomach hurt. She began to think that Nathan didn't really love her any more. He stopped playing with her altogether, and pretty soon it was his parents who came to feed and water her. They never took her out or even pet her. They just gave her food and water.

The cage she had thought so pretty became a prison. Her toys had all been chewed out of boredom. She started chewing on the cage, just for something to do. It became habitual; she chewed and chewed, though she knew she would never chew her way out. Then one day she pulled a tooth. Oh it hurt! she had trouble eating, but Nathan's parents paid her no heed. Her teeth grew back, but they were crooked and overlapped the wrong way now. Eating became a difficult chore, and she only ate enough to stay alive.

Finally the tooth just got to be to much and she didn't eat at all. She lost weight rapidly, going from thin to bony in just a few days. If the funny rabbits had even noticed they did nothing about it. Cinnamon grew weak and tired. She had given up on life, and she knew it would be over for her soon. She thought of how excited she had been that day; how she thought she'd have fun for the rest of her life. She had been so wrong. She wondered if her brothers and sisters had gotten good homes or if they lay dying in a cage somewhere, alone and cold. Her eyes grew blurry, but she did notice one last thing. Lights. Flashing lights adorned the house, just like they had when she had come here. She closed her eyes and one last breath escaped her mouth.
