How to Have a Happy Bunny... on Easter!





Introduction: How to Have a Happy Bunny... on Easter!

Learn all the important factors to help ensure your rabbit is happy!

Step 1: Give Your Rabbit a Nice Place to Live.

Give your rabbit a large living space with enough room to hop around during the day while you are gone. Rabbits require a hutch, or cage, with an adequate food and water supply. If kept outside they require shelter from extreme weather conditions.

Step 2: Give Your Rabbit Lots of Places to Explore.

It is important for rabbits to be able to hop around and explore different spaces. Rabbits like to hang out under tables, chairs, shelves, corners, and various tight spaces.

Step 3: Get Your Rabbit Toys to Play With!

Rabbits love to chew. They will chew on anything they can get to! Therefore it is important to give them various chew toys. If you do not provide them with things to chew then they will eventually find their way to your favorite chair!

Step 4: Give Your Rabbit Lots of Affection.

Rabbits love to be loved. Show them you care by giving them an occasional scratch on the nose!

Step 5: Keep in Mind That Your Rabbit Is a Rabbit.

Rabbits will dig, chew, and poo. Do not try to stop them from these behaviors. Rabbits are also known for their cleanliness and it is normal to expect that they will spend much of their day grooming themselves.

Step 6: Get Your Rabbit a Friend!

Rabbits get lonely. They are accustomed to living in small groups, so getting your rabbit a companion will enhance its living experience.

Step 7: Do Not Exploit Your Rabbit on Easter!

Rabbits are not toys and do not enjoy being put into tiny baskets!!

    im thinkin of gettin 1 but how much work r they

    they are easy if you know how to take care of them, ours eat weeds and live in an outdoor enclosure except in winter when they live in the basement, food is free, and cages are not much money, if you want, you can get a wire-bottom cage and set them on your lawn in a weedy spot to munch the weeds, but if you bring them inside, use a plastic-bottomed cage with cedar shavings, you can also feed them weeds (they will not eat what is not good for them) in the spring, summer, and fall, in the winter however, they eat pellets and alfalfa because there are no weeds left. you can pick up a nice rabbit outfit (toys, cage, cedar, and water bottle) for about 20-30$. some enjoy cuddling (lops, netherland dwarfs, rex's.) some do not, (lionheads, some mixes.)

    don't use cedar shavings. they are poisonous. but pine shavings are fine.

    "They will not eat what is not good for them." We have used both cedar and pine shavings and the rabbits have shown no ill effects from either.

    This is a dangerous mistake to make. They will, index, eat things that will harm them - right down to electric woes that are plugged in. Cedar is toxic to rabbits. Don't take my word for it - but don't take An Villian's word for it, either. If you aren't sure, consult with a vet who specializes in exotics - specifically. Don't go to just any dog & cat vet, either. There are many things that non-specialist vets simply don't always know (I'm not knocking non-specialists - but I don't go to a general practitioner, if I need a neuro-surgeon, either). Please, don't buy a bunny for Easter. Get the little ones studies or candy, or some other toy bunny. A rabbit is a 10 year commitment, and they eat, chew, and poop CONSTANTLY. Their food is NOT free, unless you're growing good quality, organic Timothy hay and organic veggies. Fruits should only be a tiny piece, about the size of your index finger nail, and only one or two a day.
    If you do get a bunny and decide it's not a good fit for you, please don't 'set it free'! Domesticated rabbits have NO survival skills. When they are dumped, it means that unless someone else finds & takes pity on them, they will either become food, die of starvation, or die of exposure.
    If you take your Rabbit outside, keep them in a covered enclosure - they are prey animals, and that hawk isn't flying around, because he thinks your bun is cute - he's thinking it would make a great dinner.

    I agree completely. Well written.

    They are a lot of work! Please research before getting a rabbit. So many rabbits are discarded because people don't realize how much they require. They are wonderful pets, but can be very expensive. I would never discourage anyone from getting rabbits, but know what you are getting yourself into first.

    Buns are as much of a commitment as a small dog if you care for them properly!
