Looking for a pet: Consider a rabbit

Looking for a pet: Consider a rabbit

They can be cute and fluffy. They may be playful like a puppy or kitten, but they are also curious and mischievous and love to chew. If your children leave their clothes on the floor, if you have tassels and laces hanging from your curtains or furniture, you will quickly learn that chewing is one of your new pet’s favorite pastimes. If the bunny is a house pet, do not leave it alone at home without supervision. And if your computer or any of your appliances stop working, it’s a good idea to check the electrical cord for dents.

You will certainly have some expenses to prepare a home for your new friend. You’ll need a hutch or cage to keep him out of harm’s way at night or when you’re not looking. Your pet supply store will likely have an assortment of housing gear at an assortment of prices. Or if you’re handy with tools, build your own. Just don’t use chicken wire or place slats too close together; make sure there is nothing the rabbit can hurt himself with. Do not keep your rabbit in the cage for too long. They are sociable creatures and feel lonely.

Other expenses may include normal health care that you must provide for any pet. Sterilization and castration, vaccinations, treatment against fleas. And don’t forget to watch for other health problems, especially those specific to rabbits.

Rabbits generally do not like to be held, so they are not a lap animal or a child’s playmate. They are quiet, clean and for the most part like to be left alone. However, they like a large area where they can move around and explore. Make sure they have room to exercise. Provide a door to their hut to allow free access. They feel more comfortable if they have a safe place to go.

Rabbit owners are unanimous in praising their pets. Like most other pets, they all have different personalities, bond well with their owners and are easily trained using treats and the same techniques as training a dog.

We can’t stress enough though, do your homework. And if you think a rabbit is a pet you could live with, check with a pet shelter near you. They often have rabbits available.

Just remember that every pet needs love and proper care. Because of their nature, rabbits require a little more care than a dog or cat. Make sure you are engaged.
