i came across this poem today. I know it's about rabbits, but it brought a tear to my eye so i though i should share it.


Easter Bunny
by Mary Brandolino
In memory of all the bunnies we couldn't save.


I remember Easter Sunday
It was colorful and fun
The new life that I'd begun
In my new cage.

I was just a little thing
When they brought me from the store
And they put me on the floor
In my cage.

They would take me out to play
Love and pet me all the time
Then at day's end I would climb
In my cage.

But as days and weeks went by
I saw less of them it seemed
Of their loving touch I dreamed
In my cage.

In the night outside their house
I felt sad and so neglected
Often scared and unprotected
In my cage.

In the dry or rainy weather
Sometimes hotter sometimes colder
I just sat there growing older
In my cage.

The cat and dog raced by me
Playing with each other only
While I sat there feeling lonely
In my cage.

Upon the fresh green grass
Children skipped and laughed all day
I could only watch them play
From my cage.

They used to take me out
And let me scamper in the sun
I no longer get to run
In my cage.

Once a cute and cuddly bunny
Like a little ball of cotton
Now I'm grown up and forgotten
In my cage.

I don't know what went wrong
At the home I did inhabit
I just grew to be a rabbit
In my cage.

But they've brought me to the pound
I was once loved and enjoyed
Now I wait to be destroyed
In my cage.

Very sad but true, and how easy would it be to substitute guinea pig for rabbit in that poem :'(

While there are too many of any animal being bred, they will not be valued as they should, they are just too easy to come by. The free ad sites and papers are bursting with adult and baby bunnies and guineas...it's hopeless.

All because people take them on not knowing the first thing about them (from petshops that dont know either) which is where unwanted pregnancies come from which results in more unwanted animals

It makes me :(

And the way people tire of them and then neglect them makes me :( as well

Terribly sad poem. Infact you could substitute bunny with any pet name to be honest. Theres dogs, cats, hamsters, piggies horses and even more that are bought and then sadly forgotten and neglected. Its a crime and very upsetting. :'(
