What’s fuzzy, has 2 big ears, hops around, and gives out candy on Easter? That’s right. Rabbits are not only good for candy deliveries but they are amazing pets! They are the perfect medium between tiny pets such as gerbils but nowhere near the size of a Great Dane. They are some of the most precious creatures you could possibly have in your household. Here are 10 reasons to convince you to make a rabbit your new best friend.
They get along with everything and everyone! They get along with not only small children and elderly family members but also with your cats and dogs. Don’t be surprised if you see your rabbit cuddling with your new puppy or running around with your old house cat. They are really quite the charmers. Just ask Roger.
Rabbits require just the perfect amount of grooming. Have small but mature children in the house? Let them brush your pet rabbit so his fur is nice and soft. Luckily he doesn’t need grooming that requires tons of time and money at a salon!
- Great Starter Pet
Rabbits are great starter pets for families who are looking into larger pets. They require more than a goldfish but less than a dog. They’re a happy medium! They are large and interactive enough to teach your child how to care for larger animals that don’t require a cage. They can run around the house, but not too much. They make a bit of a mess but not too much of that either. They are also quiet. No loud bunnies in the house!!
They require very little supplies. A large cage, some newspaper, and a few cleaning supplies and cleaning fluids then you’re set! Quick and easy cleanup for whatever your rabbit throws your way. They are so easy your kids could help out any time!! All the hands on pet experience they need without the hassle.
Yes! They can be housetrained! It’s suggested that you start them out in a cage before the litter box. However with the proper amount of time and energy your rabbit could be just as self sufficient as you!!
Let’s be honest. As lovely as dogs are sometimes they are just a little too antsy to sit down and watch a movie on your lap. And cats sometimes just want to have their alone time. You don’t particularly have to worry about that with a rabbit. Sit your rabbit on your lap when your favorite movie comes on!! They’re so affectionate that they’ll love to join you.
Another great trait about rabbits that other small animals don’t necessarily have is the fact that they come in so many different shapes and sizes. They come spotted, black, white, brown, large, tiny, etc. You can literally take your pick! Who doesn’t love choices!?
- Easy to Find
Rabbits are very easy to find both in stores and at rescue shelters. You don’t have to go to an expensive private breeder for your little companion. You can go to the nearest shelter and take your pick of the bunch. Good to know right?
Because they are so fun loving and energetic they tend to be pretty patient by nature but especially with children. You typically don’t have to worry about your rabbit snapping. Besides who could be mad at that face anyway??
Rabbits are not the kind of pet to just sit around. They are very active and therefore there is never a dull moment. After all pets are supposed to bring you joy!!
