T.G.I.F. Thumper Gets


Well, it’s Friday, and before you know it Easter will be here.  The Easter Bunny spends the winter months in South Carolina and we know this because we’ve seen him in our yard.  Before too long, he will be headed out to deliver a batch of Easter Eggs.  Actually, that is our T.G.I.F. for today…Thumper Gets Into Festivities!

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Thumper likes to pawty!  So, the night before Easter, don’t forget to leave out some milk and cookies and some carrots for the reindeer.  Oops, wrong holiday!  It’s been a long week and we’re ready for the weekend!  How about you?  Are you ready for the weekend too?

Please remember that bunnies are not right to give as an Easter gift.  Bunnies are a commitment for lots of years, just like cats and dogs.  The deserve lots of love and attention and it is important to provide the life they deserve.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Easter makes me a little sad because I know that so many humans who should know better but don’t bring home bunnies they are not prepared to care for. But they do that for cats and dogs too. 🙁

We agree no bunnies at Easter as they are a commitment not a play thing for the season. Well said Brian. Have a fabulous Friday.

No animal should be bought on a whim or because it “represents” a holiday. It’s just plain wrong because a pet is a commitment. It makes Mommy very sad to see how many people buy bunnies for their children then end up keeping them in a small cage once the novelty wears off.

What a cute bunny and such good advice about getting bunnies for Easter. And that goes for ducks too. We used to get ducks as children for Easter. Neither one should be presents unless everyone has been advised as to the care of the animals. Looks like we are going to have a wonderful week end. Whoo Hooo.

hahaha yes, I will do that the night before easter lol. but we will try the easter-water trick, where you have to bring home water of an easter fountain without speaking a word on your way home. then you will have good lock a whole year… sadly my mom fails every year :o) have a super friday!

I have a hard time with all these wabbit posts…it makes me nervous since I’m not supposed to bother wabbits until after Easter.

Bunnies need to be socialized too. We had one when we were kids and it came from a less than purrfect environment. Every time we picked him up he would become so scared he’d pee. On us. Poor fella, he never really adjusted.

Such cute pictures. I agree with not buying bunnies unless you commit to care for them properly and so many don’t. I had a peep at the weekend on the calendar and saw a special girl cat. I am working all weekend so busy busy.

We see bunnies in our backyard once in awhile, but we leave them alone! I hope our friendly ferals do too; never seen a bunny nor a bird injured in our area, so I must feed them well enough! They do pretend chase the squirrels, who always stay out of reach.

Someone needs glasses. I thought the bunny was real for a minute!

Thumper certainly looks real. We will not be giving any bunnies as Easter gifts except stuffies.

Your friend Thumper is cute and very lifelike.


That bunny sure looks real…hope he brought chocolate eggs:0r at least catnip ones.

Very good advice. Pets are to be planned for, not gifted on a whim. It’s not fair to do that to bunnies when the recipients aren’t prepared for a lifelong commitment.

We like bunnies too…but they should never be bought just because it’s Easter. Too many of them end up in shelters after Easter…and that makes us sad.

Have a great weekend, Brian.

Perhaps we could leave out some carrots for the Easter bunny?

I’m excited for Easter! No bunnies, just eggs.

What a fuzzy bunny you have. I met a real bunny once. It was going to come live with us, but dad has allergies and can’t have all that hay in the house so we couldn’t adopt him. Bunnies need lots of care and attention just like kitties so it’s important for people to be sure they can properly care for a bunny before adopting one.

That bunny looks like he’d be pretty high maintenance alright. It’s been a good weekend. Storm and no electricity and all!
