    I got this as a e-mail from a friend to pass on. So I wanted to share this here. Get ready for a real tear jerker.

    Easter Bunny

    by Mary Brandolino

    In memory of all the bunnies we couldn't save.

    I remember Easter Sunday

    It was colorful and fun

    The new life that I'd begun

    In my new cage.

    I was just a little thing

    When they brought me from the store

    And they put me on the floor

    In my cage.

    They would take me out to play

    Love and pet me all the time

    Then at day's end I would climb

    In my cage.

    But as days and weeks went by

    I saw less of them it seemed

    Of their loving touch I dreamed

    In my cage.

    In the night outside their house

    I felt sad and so neglected

    Often scared and unprotected

    In my cage.

    In the dry or rainy weather

    Sometimes hotter sometimes colder

    I just sat there growing older

    In my cage.

    The cat and dog raced by me

    Playing with each other only

    While I sat there feeling lonely

    In my cage.

    Upon the fresh green grass

    Children skipped and laughed all day

    I could only watch them play

    From my cage.

    They used to take me out

    And let me scamper in the sun

    I no longer get to run

    In my cage.

    Once a cute and cuddly bunny

    Like a little ball of cotton

    Now I'm grown up and forgotten

    In my cage.

    I don't know what went wrong

    At the home I did inhabit

    I just grew to be a rabbit

    In my cage.

    But they've brought me to the pound

    I was once loved and enjoyed

    Now I wait to be destroyed

    In my cage.

    Iv been seeing alot of posts on my local craigslist for people wanting to rehome bunnies...FOR EASTER, GREAT EASTER GIFTS GET ONE NOW FOR YOUR KIDS BEFORE THERE ALL GONE! UGH, it makes me sick to my stomach.

    I had a couple of e-mails for some chicks i was rehoming from parents wanting to get chicks for their kids for easter. When I replyed back about the whole thing was wrong to give kids chicks as easter presents...that cute little chicks grew up to be big roosters who are loud and crow alot of hens who lay eggs and make loud squaking noises. They were no so pleased with me I recieved some nasty e-mails.
