Hare. Bunny. Rabbit. They all mean the same thing, a sweet furry friend for life. Although considered by some as an exotic pet, rabbits can provide as much love and companionship as a dog or cat. But you have to do your part to keep them happy, healthy and safe.
A rabbit lives on average for 10 years. Like any pet, there is a commitment you need to make and keep for the life of your rabbit. Rabbits are social animals. When they bond with you they will experience sadness when you are not around or paying attention to them. Don’t forget, a rabbit isn’t like a cat or dog. They have their own unique lifestyle and quirks.
A house and proper food are essential. You can look up relevant information bout proper food and housing in http://www.ebayclassifieds.com/. In general, you can buy quality rabbit pellets from the store for food. Water should always be fresh and available. A cage should be large and have a proper floor. Wire floors can damage their feet. The cage is their home and should make them feel safe. Fill the cage with a litter box, hay, toys and it’s a perfect place for a food bowl and water.
Play with your rabbit. Don’t let them sit in the cage all day. They love to be social and interact with you. The more you play and bond with your rabbit, the quicker you will become lifelong friends.
