Miss all the bunnies on the island. I feel very happy every time I see someone sharing post about some bunnies I recognise. Knowing that they're doing fine, such as Onigiri-chan, Tanu-chan, Shake-chan, etc. On the other hand, there were bunnies I worried about, but could not see on my second visit nor from other people's posts on IG, this makes me feel sad. Visiting the island is an emotional thing, and the emotions continues... Please read:
As a bunny lover, it is a mixture of extreme feelings to visit the rabbit island. Happiness from the cuteness of the bunnies and the beauty of the island, sadness from the homeless, many with sickness and injury, each deserved to be loved and cared for.
They are not your free entertainment. They are living creatures, fighting to survive on this island, on their own (they do not belong to the hotel). It really is not a paradise for the bunnies. So, if you really want to go, please do something for them. Don't take the bunnies for granted. - do not pick them up. Bunnies are prey animals, they do not like to be picked up. A kick from the struggle can both hurt you and break their own bones easily. And if they get injured, they are less likely to survive.
- bring a few empty bottles with you and fill their water bowls along the way while you spend your time on the island. This is especially important on sunny days.
