Learning How To Understand Your Pet Bunny Rabbit
by Andrea Austin, Rabbits-n-Bunnies.com


In reality, rabbits are very different from their cartoon counterparts. Rabbits may be fuzzy and adorable, but that doesn’t mean they enjoy cuddling up to humans or being picked up and carried around. In fact, improper handling of your new pet can result in harm, so before you pick out your rabbit, make sure you understand all the basics of rabbit behavior and care.

Rabbits and Children

As I have already discussed, rabbits do best in households with older, more responsible children. This is mainly because the older children will treat the animals more gently than toddlers, who can get quite aggressive. Older children will also be able to understand a rabbit’s needs and emotional temperament better. That said, the relationship between a rabbit and a child can be strong and very fulfilling if the child is taught to treat his pet correctly.

Rabbits and Other Animals

Rabbits also tend to like other animals, particularly companion rabbits. Many people choose to bring home a second rabbit to keep the first pet company, and this can be a good idea in many cases. It tends to work best if the two animals are adults, and are introduced in a neutral area, so that the first rabbit doesn’t feel territorial. It’s also a good idea to pair your first rabbit with a neutered adult rabbit of the opposite gender, as this combination tends to work well.

Domestic cats, well-trained dogs, and domestic rabbits can all coexist peacefully provided that you set up some “ground rules” by supervising their playtime, especially in the beginning.

If you have a dog, make sure he is very obedient before you let your new rabbit run loose around him. That way, if he lunges for the bunny, you can command him to “stop” and “sit.”

How to Win Their Love and Trust

As I have mentioned, rabbits are naturally somewhat skittish. This may be especially the case if you have adopted a neglected or abused rabbit from a shelter. Some rabbits have even been known to die of fear when they are not even in immediate physical danger—when another animal approaches the cage in a threatening manner, for instance.

Because of this innate temperament, it is so important for you and your household’s members to respect your new pet. Treat him carefully, gently, and lovingly. Pet him only when he wishes to be pet, and don’t pick him up unless he seems comfortable with it. Don’t put him on the spot or force him to do tricks if he would rather go sit in a quiet corner of his cage. Be gentle and soft-spoken with your rabbit, as this is the kind of behavior they respond best to.

If you heed this advice, you will probably find that you develop a close and satisfying relationship with your pet. He will grow to trust you and show you various sides of his personality. He may very likely exhibit a sense of humor and compassionate feelings toward you—a wonderful reward!
