They are so powerful, that they can make a generally sane woman crazy.
An example would be the overwhelming urge I felt yesterday, while reading Marshmallow to Mare, to go out and buy my six year old a snow-white bunny. Boy, I kept thinking, that Marshmallow is so adorable! And I bet it is so soft and cuddly. And Mare! She would be so happy (alternatively her older sister would be completely bent out of shape – but whatever.) I thought about how I have read they can be house trained. I read about how they don’t make any noise. And just look at those drawings – they made my heart yearn for my very own bunny!
And then I got to the part where Clare Turlay Newberry very honestly describes the chewing bunnies like to do and the destruction to furniture that results. And I was cured of my insanity.
