:x I get so annoyed by other peoples opinions on pet rabbits, especially from those who work with me and know me!

Yesterday, my vet bed arrived and my order from Hay Expert - work colleagues just totally took the wee at the fact that I had bought my rabbits toys! One friend has two british shorthaired cats like me who are very spoilt so I said it is no different to her buying your cats toys, in fact, I told her rabbits need more stimulation than my own cats!

Rant over, I just get so cross :x

:x Don't think they'll ever learn! Even my husband admitted he hadn't realised (until he met me) exactly how cheeky, funny and loving rabbits could be. He just thought they were pointless pets sitting in hutches doing nothing! Obviously he now thinks differently! Its such a shame really because they are such characters, people don't know what they are missing !

When I had my first bunnies, people thought rabbits were just for the oven. It wasn't very common to have them as pets. But even nowadays I still get to hear jokes like "will you have them for Christmas" etc.. :roll:

My mother always thought rabbits were boring and cats much more entertaining. Now she is looking after my senior bunny and enjoys his company so much.

yep, makes me mad. People think that they are breeding machines too, and getting them neutered is a waste. I often get asked whether i am fattening them up for my ferrets. Not while i am alive.

They also ramble on about Mayas eyes. Why spend so much? cos he deserves life more then most people :D
