Six Reasons Why Pets Are Better Than Dates

Pets snuggle with no ulterior motives.


You expect your pet to sometimes smell funny. You worry when your date does. Conversely, your pet seems to enjoy it when you are especially malodorous, whereas your date does not.


Your pet doesn’t mind so much when you wear matching outfits.


Your pet doesn’t care if you have put on a few pounds, have some extra hair in weird places or if you’re wearing those holey sweatpants. Some dates expect you to step it up.


When you give your pet dinner out of a bag, can or crisper drawer, they act like it is French cuisine.


Your pet will always be happy to see you and will act like it’s been an eternity since they saw you last. If your date is not happy to see you, get a different date. Better yet, get a pet.

What’s the First Thing You Think of When You Wake Up?

(Oh stop it.) We are such dedicated Cute Nerds, you know Teh Cute is always on our minds! Yay! (And, occasionally, if it’s not, then maybe it’s an indication that we have a life, but let’s be realistic.)

Jessica B. writes, “This is my friend’s baby dwarf bunny, and she likes to lie upside-down on her lap. Her name is Fluffay and she belongs to 6-year-old Gracie.” That’s right, it’s Fluffay, with an ‘a’!

Philosopher Bunny Struggles with Truth

The days pass like shadows, creeping up walls until all is darkness and night. I pace from room to room, endless as the dim twisting corridors of my soul, seeking answers that do not come. From the other room I hear her call to me, like a desperate angel, powerless to break the chains that bind me to this world of woe.

“You gonna finish these carrots or what?” she softly asks.

Or what, I muse to myself. What… indeed?


We take you now to sender-inner Elizabeth S. at our Too Much Information desk: “Here is a picture taken recently of my bunnies Plushie and Twinkie. They’re brother and sister and absolutely inseparable. We had to separate them before they were spayed and neutered. Plushie would try to break out of his cage to go and see her. He was successful… TWICE.”

At the Magicians Retirement Home

“If you think it’s strange to see a rabbit coming out of a rice cooker, consider that right now my owner, ‘The Great Nomtomi,’ is trying to cook basmati in his top hat.”


Kei C. says: “This is my pet rabbit YuYu. I got her when I lived in Tokyo… and brought her back to the U.S.”

No Disapproval Here!

Look at this Bun Action! No doubt named after the great former Denver Bronco QB John Elway. We know John wouldn’t be seen with a daisy dandelion in his fur hair, but it works for this Elway! Tell us, Harn C. “Elway took a road trip with us from Issaquah, WA to Denver, CO– during the peak of the Colorado fires, no less! He’s a trooper, a traveler, and a cute little thing to boot :) Hope you enjoy!”

Nicole D. says she found this video and, “There is so much cute bunneh tongue action that I don’t know what to do with myself, except (everybody say it together now) squee uncontrollably !”

Yes. Very Amusing.

Please, do not mistake my eye-rolling for disapproval; my orbital lobes are irritated due to a stray hare.


Betty is very…um…tolerant, Brogan S.
