Make Mine Chocolate... Or Moss!

I don't think I need to explain the meaning of "Make Mine Chocolate" to anyone who reads this blog. Nor do I need to enumerate the dangers of buying rabbits for Easter. And the need to educate anyone you can about those dangers.

I am a big supporter of "Make Mine Chocolate," even having bought an Easter bunny myself 3 years ago.

But what about "Make Mine Moss"?

I got this in the mail from Jon's parents today. Isn't he cute? It's a little moss-covered bunny with an Ivy plant growing around him.

(Yeah, I know my jade plant looks badly. I'm not happy about that.)

Isn't he cute! He needs a name. He did come in a nice little terra cotta pot but I wanted to keep him in the plastic to minimize leakage and with the box holding him upright.

I checked the toxic houseplant list right away, (http://www.adoptarabbit.com/articles/toxic.html), and Ivy IS toxic to rabbits, so this little rabbit was moved into the bedroom.

I hope I don't kill him!

  1. I love the moss and ivy bunny. Good for your air, bad for bunnies to eat.

  2. If you kill the ivy (not likely), the topiary form anchored in a clay pot can be returned to the bunspace as a decorative item.
