It’s like, sure, I love cute bunny videos, but most ‘cute’ videos actually show stressed or mishandled animals. If you have no clue of proper rabbit care or rabbit communication you won’t even notice it.
A rabbit taking a bath and splashing water on its owner? Super cute right? Nope. All I see is a stressed animal in a potentially very dangerous situation. (Don’t bathe rabbits, seriously)
A sped-up video of a rabbit eating an entire carrot? Haha so funny! Nope. All I see is an animal being fed an improper diet and the health issues it will bring. (Carrots are high in sugar and should not be fed as anything other than small pieces of candy)
I’ve been tagged in so many 'cute’ bunny videos these past year, and frankly, they mostly make me upset. It pisses me off that there’s so many uneducated and irresponsible owners out there, and that their mishandling of animals is played of as cute and funny. What bothers me most is that I myself had no idea about these things before I got rabbits own my own and started researching. There’s so so much misconceptions about rabbits and rabbit care. It just makes me sad. They’re such wonderful animals when treated right.
