View Full Version : Worst Pet Ever?

I'm a dog owner. In the past, I've owned a German Shepard mix (not sure what it was mixed with), a male yorkie (deceased last summer), and I currently own a female yorkie that was given to us by my grandma. I've always loved these dogs and have cared for them as best as possible. I've also had experience working with rats (they were a class pet in my high school home room and fun to interact with). Generally, I like the company of having an animal companion, but I've never really had a "bad" pet... until now.

One thing I have never, not once had to deal with was owning a rabbit. It is literally the worst experience I have ever had with animals. Stewart, a little over a year old, was given to us by my sister. I can't imagine why anyone would want to burden themselves with such an abominable creature around their house, other than because they look cute. They are not interactive in the slightest, every time they are uncaged, they run under the bed and chew on your shoeboxes (this doesn't bother me so much as the fact that he will refuse to come out even when coaxed with food), and all they do is poop, poop, poop.

It doesn't help that their litter gets everywhere, or that they will smell up your entire bedroom, no matter how regularly you clean their cage. Does anyone else have similar stories of pets that are just no good?

Really!? Rabbits aren't pets, they are food and rats are food for pet snakes! :evil-grin:

Sorry, my wife and I stick to dogs. I think bunnies are for eating, I know our greyhounds love them. :biggrin-new:

My yorkie does like to chase it around the room, but after a while it's more of a hassle than it is cute or funny.

You have to give that guy credit. He has been keeping up the "rabbits are evil" crap for over ten years that I am aware of.

Persistence is it's own reward...or something like that...

That's what happened to the bunnies who were stupid enough to build a nest in the fenced yard with 2 greyhounds. Blue was old and couldn't run fast because of his bad legs and all the epileptic seizures that weakened him, but he and Darlene somehow caught a momma bunny when I lived in St Louis, before SR and I were married. I didn't see the hounds, called them, and Blue peaked around the corner of the garage with 2 big long bunny ears sticking out of his mout. I doubt if he could have caught it himself, but suspect my sweet Darlene dawg caught it and let him have it.

The next week was a nightmare of picking up little baby bunny bodies that they picked off. Bunnies indeed are dumb. I hated having to dispose of all those bunny bodies, but made a big point after that of rapping on the door before opening it for the dogs.

Love that running greyhound thing, thanks. Look carefully and see how their running style is so similar to a cheetah's.

I would not stew over it for too long.

Rabbits are not good pets. Everyone I knew as a kid who got one for a gift ended up giving it away after getting bitten.

We used to have wild rabbits in our yard when I was a kid. They are happier that way than being pets.
