I looooove bunnies. This precious duo came out for Santa Barbara's Bunny Festival last weekend. Lucky rabbits – there were carrot eating contests, pampering massages at "Spa Bunne," and even the Bunny Olympics where agility trained rabbits did hurdles, obstacle courses, and even played basketball! I still haven't worked out in my head how a bunny could play anything resembling basketball but, since I wasn't able to make it, I'll take their word for it.
The event is put on by Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (B.U.N.S.), a crucial volunteer organization to help abandoned rabbits. So many people adopt baby rabbits then realize they don't have the patience to care for them once they grow up. As when choosing any pet, make sure you have enough energy to dedicate to their needs.
The problem with abandoned bunnies has gotten so serious in some cities (San Francisco, included) that there are city ordinances prohibiting the sale of rabbits. Unless you have the space and time to dedicate, be like me and do your bunny admiring from afar!
