Whether you are a bunny lover or not, sometimes even just scrolling through pictures of Holland Lops can turn your mood around. They are so unbelievably adorable that they help remind you of all the beauty in life, and help deter the thoughts of the unfortunate negatives out there that are sometimes just unavoidable. Owning a bunny takes it to a whole different level. Coming home from a rough day of school or work to your furry friend not only gives you something to look forward to, but additionally helps let you know you are not alone. Their unconditional love has no bounds and their everlasting bond can make your day do a complete turn around once you are spending quality time with them. Here is a breakdown of what makes them so good at what they do, and what makes them such convenient pets.
While it is without question that pets reduce stress, it seems that bunnies just have the natural ability for fitting the stress reduction mold better than most. While lower on maintenance, their intelligence level is extremely high so they form a natural bond quickly and in turn the owner feels a connection that goes far beyond other pets ranging in their size. It does help that they are the softest, most cuddly things in the world, and naturally petting an animal does reduce stress according to studies done by various institutions.
One of the key things I find is that bunnies are crepuscular- Whats that? Well this means they are most active and looking to play in the mornings and nights. Which means if you are working all day, fear not that your bunny is unattended because they are just waiting for you to come home and give them all the love that you were wishing to give all day! It gives the owner something to look forward to knowing their little loving family member will brighten even the worst of days. It also helps knowing that they will not be destroying furniture and messing up your house or apartment while you are away :)
Next, and this was me growing up. Saturday mornings I was up bright and early and my parents after a long work week just needed, or WISHED, they could get that extra bit of rest in the morning to help recharge their batteries. Looking back, knowing what they know now, they probably would have entertained getting me a bunny. Especially because living in an apartment, any other animals were out of the question.
I have literally had customers reach back out to me saying, "Purchasing a bunny was the best thing that ever happened to them" and if you do not believe me just check the Customer Review Page out for yourself and you will see what I mean!
At the end of the day though, I could give examples, citing professionals from an infinite amount of reputable sources, but then my blog post would never come to an end! What I can guarantee is that in the stressful time were in now, bunnies are without a doubt the pet you have been missing. They add brightness to my day and when I am feeling down and out, my immediate escape is my Rabbitry! Share that same experience with me, and you will feel something that all bunny owners already know. That having one was the best thing that ever happened to them!
Wishing all the bunny lovers out there the best,
