Don't Use Real Rabbits as Your Smartphone Case

Earlier this month, a Twitter user in Japan uploaded a photo of a "bunny smartphone case". The image was retweeted over 37,000 times, and, of course, has spawned a meme. Of course!

Here is the pic that started it all.

But, hey, these are real animals. And they have feelings. They're not smartphone cases. Although, maybe their ears help with the phone's reception? (No! No, they don't!)

It goes without saying that people aren't actually using rabbits as real smartphone cases — like, carrying them around and whatnot. For better or worse, these are photo-ops.

And, yes, other Japanese Twitter users followed suit.

As website News Gamme reports, the meme appears to have caught on in China, where people are uploading their photos to the country's micro-blogging service, Weibo.

But in Japan, the trend doesn't appear to have stopped at bunnies. There are cat smartphone cases, too, it seems.

    The crazy bunny owner in me says: while these pictures sure look cute, this behaviour is a defence mechanism to escape predators and is the result of fear. It has the potential to cause stress to the rabbit (from what I believe).

    But the crazy Asian in me says: I should do that to our bunnies...

      The crazy Asian in me suspects that somewhere, somehow, we'll see real "bunny phone cases" for sale.

      And also, that cat's owner is about a millisecond away from being viciously savaged...
