A craze for people-shaped ‘all-in-one’ sleep suits designed especially for rabbits is finally putting some fun into the lives of pet owners. The rubbery, pink, wrinkled ‘human onsies’ make even the fluffiest of leporines take on the appearance of a hunched, naked midget, and are being stuffed into hutches right across Britain.
“I was quite bored of Mr Nibbles, what with his same-old fur and twitchy nose”, confessed pet owner Julie Richards. “But in his onesie, he’s like a shivering, vulnerable, bare little man.” Richards enjoys the sense of power that comes from owning a nuddy man-bunny, and forcing carrots through the zip in his pseudo-human face.
The company behind the craze is planning to expand the range for cats, dogs and ugly children, bringing old-man fun to even the most tedious of dependents. “There’ll be some accessories coming soon too, such as glasses, dentures and a smell of cabbage”, explained CEO Howard Shepstone. “But you have to be a little careful, or you can end up being forced to answer difficult questions. For instance, I’ve just accidentally let a real pensioner try and rim me.”
