Do not recommend "trial pets" for children.

THIS idea of teaching responsibility with an animal or that certain animals are a stepping stone to a dog or cat is so misguided. Parents need to be prepared to care for the pet when the child inevitably loses interest. Pets are lifelong commitments - especially rabbits, they live until 12+ years if properly cared for...and they certainly are NOT cuddly or good for young children.They cost as much as a cat or dog for veterinary care and it is nothing shy of criminal to deny them that.
Be responsible and do not add to the problem of pet abandonment, neglect and suffering by printing articles such as this horrible, inaccurate one! Thank you.
See: https://rabbit.org/ for accurate and responsible information.

Wow! Anyone who is educated in rabbits knows they are EXOTIC pets, NOT starter pets. This article is WAY off base and INCORRECT. Amazing that they did ZERO research on the subject before publishing it.
