We had rabbits as pets when my kids were younger. I learned quite a few things about them during those years. For starters, they eat their own poop and sit in their own urine to keep cool in the hot summer months. They also are very fragile animals; my oldest daughter who was 12 at the time, found this out the hard way. Her rabbit Mascara and the one pictured here, Shadow appeared to lead boring lives in their cages. So she decided to remedy the problem by placing a rather large wood planter in their cage, for them to play in. The next day she came in from feeding them and her glum expression told me something was very wrong. She found Shadow crushed underneath the planter. Yup, completely steamrolled. And that ladies and gentlemen is how she discovered that rabbits are not as tough or bored as they appear.
