How "little" sister are we talking about? If she's young enough; your parents should have made sure she'd take care of it - well, actually, in my opinion should have made sure she had read up on the care involved.

If she's old enough to know and do better, sorry, some people think the idea of a pet is so neat, but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of the care involved, they're no longer interested. :/

You could tell your sister that there are people who would love to have a pet to take care of, but they are unable to due to lack of money or their living situation. That might help her to understand that being able to have a pet is a privilege.

kids want everything. My 7 year old niece wanted a betta. She doesn't care for it, nor was she really expected to. Kids want pets to look at and cuddle. A bunny is NOT the right choice for a child. I'm sorry you have to take care of it... Um, if you don't want it (chances are you have a young un-neutered bunny from the pet store therefore it will NEED to be spayed/neutered to make his hormone levels tame when he hits puberty and to prolong its life) you could surrender it to a small animal rescue?

I wonder how old your sister is? And how old you are? If you want to keep the rabbit (I love them ^.^ ) we could all here help you with undergoing the necessary research and literature in caring for your bunny :)
