Haha, well isn’t it like humans to attempt to place things in pre-made boxes and paradigms before they try to understand the thing itself? After reading this, I kind of really want a rabbit. Plus the fluffiness has always appealed to me.
Some of the “concerns” the author went over in this article were ones I’ve heard far too often from ex-rabbit owners, and I agree are total misunderstandings of how animals should act. A friend’s mother was telling us the other day about the rabbits their animal abusive (they’re called APL on them before) decided to purchase for their little girls, and how they tried to train them to be more submissive by starving them, and feeding them only when they’re “good.” *shudders*
