Foster bunny

We visited the wild rabbits of Jericho Park. When I see pictures of rabbits in children's books, I always imagine them to hop with a smart, sharp motion, but they actually move more like sleepy cotton balls even when they're going fast.

Many of the Jericho rabbits are abandoned pets, which is a little sad — rabbits live 10 years — though they seem pretty content in their blackberry thickets near the beach. Vancouver has a rabbit rescue centre where you can adopt a bunny or foster a bunny. Rabbits don't enjoy young children, but fostering a pet might be something we do in a few years. If you'd like to support the Vancouver Rabbit Rescue & Advocacy Society you can visit their shop or look at rabbits in need of care in their adoption centre.
