If you’re shopping on Poyntz Avenue and see two little ears peeking out from under the display at Danenberg Jewelers, stop in and visit the shop’s newest employee, the Easter Bunny.
Carat the “Easter Bunny” is a brown rabbit with a surprising distaste for carrots and a strong dislike for being held. He is prone to hiccups, enjoys pets from patrons and loves to relax in the corner of his large pen.
Brian Danenberg, co-owner of Danenberg Jewelers, said the bunny is popular among passersby.
“There’s a ton of people that stop by,” Danenberg said. “He draws so much attention. It’s unbelievable. People walking by will just stop dead in their tracks when they see him and it just — it’s always surprised me how they can spot him.”
Danenberg said Carat is on loan from Trieb Tribe WABbitry, a rabbit breeder based out of Wamego. While this is the fourth time the jewelers have borrowed a bunny in recent years, Danenberg said the jewelers have a long tradition of hosting the “Easter Bunny” at the store.
Carat is currently up for adoption. If you’re interested in paying him a visit, hop over to Danenberg Jewelers at 425 Poyntz Ave.
