One very special rabbit’s dance moves has caught the attention of the internet after a viral video on TikTok received over 15 million views.
Bella Ewens is the mind behind the much-loved TikTok and Instagram accounts Bunnydayoff, where millions of followers delight in the antics of her animals.
On her website, Ewens says that what began as a fun time dancing with her bunnies quickly gained traction and sensation around the world. In a range of gorgeous outfits, the super cute rabbits can be seen dancing to a range of popular songs.
With a bunny-sized whistle around its neck, this fluffy bunny boogies to Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 hit “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” much to the delight of TikTok users. The video can be seen here.
Shared last week, the video now has 4.5 million likes and thousands of comments. One commenter wrote: “This floof makes my day,” while another said: “This is exactly what I needed to see today.”
The American Veterinary Medical Association says that rabbits are clean, affectionate, and sociable animals that make excellent house pets. The American public seems to agree, the American Pet Products Association 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey reported that small animals are owned by 5 percent of US households, up one percentage point from the previous survey.
An estimated 6.2 million households own small animals as pets. Among small pet owners, the three most popular types of small animals owned are rabbits (28 percent), guinea pigs (27 percent), and hamsters (27 percent).
Based in Los Angeles, Ewens also runs accounts showcasing bunnies and kittens up for adoption in the area.
But it isn’t just TikTok famous pets that can play dress up, Ewens’ web shop Paws Mood sells everything from bunny-sized baseball caps to toys and human clothing featuring the much-loved rabbits. A blog post on the site said: “Bella focused on a mission to provide quality affordable products to pet owners. Through her experience owning various pets she had learned the best products to use in order to give her pets the best things in life.”
Ewens continues to share frequent updates of her fluffy friends, with new videos of her dancing bunnies appearing online almost every day, including a bunny with a beautiful pink bow and one dancing along in sunglasses.
Thrilled TikTok users like, comment, and share the feel-good content. In one comment, a user wrote: “You know, I was having a really hard morning but this pushed me through.”
