Illustrated Book About Pill-Popping Rabbit

I'm looking for a book about a rabbit that is depressed. He discovers

anti-depressants and many other kinds of pills. I would personally

classify it as dark humor. The book is small (around 3 inches by 3

Noble around two years ago. In addition to the author and title, a

satisfactory answer will include an image of the cover or some other

information that I can use to confirm that this book is the one I

Rainbow, thanks for the prompt response. No, this is not the book I

rabbit was depressed then got prescribed some antidepressants. He was

then happy, then discovered Viagra and a multitude of other pills and

the book describes how those pills affected his life.

In the middle of January 2004 I think it was in a bargain bin at B&N

in Pennsylvania.

there any part of the title or author you can remember. Any word?

    I'm going to go far out on a limb here and say that your book was

    actually "Pills for Cats: Finding Happiness Through Modern

    Pharmacology" (2003) by Charles Kreloff et al.

    From a reader review at

    "This is a simply delightful little book about a cat who has a whole

    bevy of modern psychological issues, and finds relief in the miracles

    of Prozac, Xanax, Valium, Ambien, and a whole host of other medicinal


    Now, obviously this book features a cat rather than a bunny rabbit,

    but the cat's long pointy ears actually make him look quite a bit like

    a rabbit. Also, the year (2003) is consistent with your recollection

    of seeing it at B&N two years ago. Also, the book is small (5

    In short, this is small, illustrated, humorous, two-year-old book

    about a depressed animal that discovers a variety of meds (and

    resembles a rabbit). As such, I'm fairly confident that this is the

    book you're remembering. If not, please let me know via the "request
