Editors’ Picks: Rabbits

My neighborhood has an exotic animal clinic with two resident rabbits, and one of my favorite things to do every morning is to take a walk over there to pay them a visit. They are always busy doing rabbity things: twitching their noses, nibbling hay, hopping sedately from place to place. I particularly love when they happen to be asleep, stretched long and flat so I can see their impossibly fluffy cotton ball feet.

Even a cursory search of the Etsy marketplace shows that I am not alone in my rabbit admiration — from needle-felted lops to scratchboard hares, there are a warren’s worth of covetable and creative rabbit-themed items. Scroll on for a few of our favorites (note: you can click the photo to go right to the item listing).
