You have seven bunny buddy requests!

In my quest last week to find as much information as possible on owning a new bunny, I came across It’s basically MySpace/Facebook for bunnies. No, not bunny owners. The bunnies themselves.

Well, OK, the bunnies aren’t actually posting photos and updating their statuses (they lack opposable thumbs); their owners are. But from the perspective of their bunnies. As in, instead of posting “I just fed Hopperton some lettuce and he loved it!” it appears on the site as “OMB! Mom just gave me some lettuces and it was super yum yums!”

Though you already may have suspected it, I’ll just tell you right now: These people are crazy. Crazy delightful!

Now, I could say the only reason I signed up was because I couldn’t post a question if I didn’t, but we all know that would be a bold-faced lie. I wanted to join in this absurdity the minute I found it, and Pancake was a proud owner of a profile about 30 seconds later.

As expected, Pancake was an instant hit on BunSpace. She had about 25 “bunny buddy” requests the first day, and she’s easily on pace to surpass Zach’s number of Facebook friends. (“Hey dude, heard your pet rabbit has more social networking friends than you do. BURN!”)

Despite all the silliness it entails, the people on the site are just really enthusiastic bunny owners who’ve been very helpful and encouraging. And they’re all rooting on shy lil Pancake to take her first brave steps out of the cage (it has to happen someday… ). Plus, someone posted this photo on her profile:

It just doesn’t get any better than that.
