As much as we love dogs and cats, there are a whole lot of other animals out there — and they love celebrating Halloween, too. There’s a bunch of horses, rabbits, chickens, goats and ferrets who can’t wait to go trick-or-treating, and we’ve collected a few photos of some of the very best costumes.
Meet Emeranthus, a four-month-old Angora rabbit who took the Best In Show title at The Rabbit Grand National for fancy rabbits under five. He or she is also my dream pet. I’m dying. He/she will be mine!. Look at those ears! Look at that fluff! Important question: when are they going to start televising the Rabbit Olympics? [Buzzfeed]
I can barely handle this ring. I mean, look at it. It’s a giant cocktail ring featuring a stoic bunny in front of an endless starry sky. Its official title is “Celestial Bunny Ring,” which sounds like the name of a really exotic sex toy or one of Frank Zappa’s children. If I owned this ring I would never need to read another book, because I would spend all day staring at it and daydreaming about bunnies in space. If some guy kneeled down in front of me on the street and presented me with this ring, I would marry him, no questions asked. This ring is just … awesome. [$24.99, Modcloth]
OK, so it didn’t arrive in time for my fifth birthday, but this is proof that a little girl’s dreams do come true! There is, as we speak, a pink bunny so big you can spot it on Google Earth! Viennese art collective, Gelatin, has created the 30-foot-high, 200-foot-long stuffed animal on a mountainside in the North of Italy. Best part, it’s meant to be played with! This soft and silly bunny will be on display until 2025, although we recommend getting there before the dirt, dust, snow, bed bugs and other elements beat you to it. Now, if you can’t make it over to Italy, you can get up close with a few perfectly pink and fluffy photos after the jump… [The Guardian] Keep reading »
It’s almost socially acceptable these days to become a cat lady, but apparently rabbit ladies get arrested? 47-year-old Miriam Sakewitz was sentenced to ninety days in jail after violating her probation by having fifteen rabbits in her Oregon hotel room. The lapin-obsessed woman’s original arrest came in 2006 when the po-po found more than 150 rabbits chillin’ at her house…plus a load of bunny corpses in the freezer. She was arrested and pleaded “no contest” to charges of animal neglect and wasn’t allowed near her furry friends for five years of probation. Whoops! I guess when you’ve got nearly 200 bunnies taking over your casa, it’s simply a more literal translation of animal husbandry but how shady is it to rent a room for the occasion?
