Bunnies Are Good For Your Old Age!
MARSAL COMMENTS: This is in response to a dear reader’s comment that most of our articles are alarming and gloomy, and suggested that: “We need happy headlines, something with bunnies and sunshine “.
As our job is to please, here goes some recent commentary about bunnies… As for sunshine, forget it, you already have all the sunshine you can bear…
It turns out that the latest medical research indicates that to have a rabbit as a pet, helps in preventing, or reducing, dementia in old age. The ability to hold it and cuddle it gives comfort and lessens the feeling of loneliness. Also, the responsibility of looking after a pet bunny and feeding it gives old people something useful to do and increases their self-esteem. (The same applies for Guinea pigs, ferrets and hens).
So, our suggestion is to rush out and buy yourself a bunny, before they are all taken… you have to be prepared for your retirement years…
NEGATIVE FOR: Wolves and foxes.
