Okunoshima in Japan is famous all over for its huge population of wild bunnies.

Thus, its other name – Rabbit Island. According to facts, the island contained a secret Japanese Imperial base used for lethal gas production during WWII. There are two theories on how the island came about to be inhabited with so many bunnies. It is said that it’s either the bunnies were released by workers after the plant closed or that a bunch of school children left some bunnies when they visited the island in 1971.

Whatever the real reason is behind the population of these cute furballs in the island, one thing is for sure: Anyone ‘s heart will surely melt at the sight of so many cuddly and adorable bunnies, especially when they gather around your feet asking to be fed and fondled.

Cuteness overload below!

There is nothing cuter in this world than adorable household pets curled up or happily attached to their favorite plushie toys.

Why do you think animals cuddle or play with stuffed animals? The actual reasons actually vary. Some do so for warmth to keep them safe while they slumber away. For some animals, like dogs for example, cuddle with stuffed animals for they represent prey. This is apparent as well when dogs often thrash or rip apart their plushies during play.

Whatever the reason, there is definitely nothing like seeing an animal cuddling with toys. It is always sure to bring out the fuzzies in everyone who sees it.
