The most important parts of rabbit care are providing a healthy diet and an oversized enclosure. Once you have got that taken care of, you’ll target rabbit-proofing your home and providing them with toys and social enrichment. Other basics of rabbit care include litter training your rabbit, grooming, and learning a way to properly hold them. the typical lifespan of a rabbit is about 10 years. This estimate will vary a touch bit, counting on the breed of the rabbit and also the conditions they board.
But once you get a pet rabbit, you would like to grasp that this is often a long-term commitment. A rabbit’s long life implies that they’ll grow to be amazing companion pets, similar to a cat or dog. But it also means we’ve to think about the likelihood of moving with a rabbit, or caring for them in their maturity. Before you create the choice to adopt or purchase a rabbit, take the time to actually consider the number of labor it’ll fancy look after them for his or her whole lives.

Litter training your rabbits can take a little time, but some rabbits may take to it almost straight away.
You can start litter training at any age but un-neutered rabbits that are litter trained may start marking their territory once hormones kick in, after their neuter they should return to using the litter box as normal.
If you are free roaming your rabbits, you may want to reduce their space to begin with (minimum 3x2m) then you can gradually increase the space once they start using the litter box.
Make sure you are using a big enough litter box for your rabbits and fill with a litter suitable for rabbits.
Rabbits will eat and poop at the same time, so pop a generous amount of hay in the one end of the litter box or in a hay rack above, then place the litter box in their chosen spot where they like to go.
While they are being litter trained, keep their hay in or above the litter box only, then once they are litter trained you can offer forage boxes or toys stuffed with hay outside of the litter box.
Once they are litter trained you will be able to move the litter box to where you prefer if they do decide their chosen spot is in an awkward place!
If you find your rabbits like to go in more than one place, you can add additional litter boxes then gradually reduce them once fully litter trained.
Clean up any accidents outside the litter box using tissue, then pop inside their litter box so they can smell their scent. Clean over the spot afterwards with a white vinegar/water mix.
Do the same with any poops outside the litter box, just pick those up and pop them in there.
When fully litter trained, rabbits may still leave the odd poops outside of the litter box, this is completely normal.
wauw, ongelooflijk dat een filmpje van dat ik met mijn konijntje Mazzel aan het springen ben zovaak bekeken wordt, dat had ik nooit verwacht.
Voor de degene die de beschrijving lezen, wil ik mededelen dat mijn lieve vriendje het vandaag (27-03-2017) opgegeven heeft. Plotseling kom hij niet meer lopen, eten en drinken. Drie dagen lang heb ik hem medicijnen, dwangvoeding en water gegeven. Hij leek een beetje op te knappen maar hij heeft vanavond om 10 uur in mijn armen gezegt dat het genoeg was geweest, en hij is rustig weggegaan.
Daarom wil ik dit filmpje als een mooie herinnering gebruiken van mijn lieve konijntje die mij heel dierbaar is geweest.
Ik zal je nooit vergeten lief Mazzeltje, je hebt altijd zo je best gedaan voor mij. En ik ga je zeker enorm veel missen. ❤
There are a few things in this world that rabbits like more than a fresh meal.
In this video, we will discover 14 things rabbits love the most.
Although many cartoons have misconstrued that rabbits are obsessed with carrots, the truth is that rabbits love bananas more than any other fruits in the world.
Small, dark hiding spots
Rabbits are prey animals and they find the most comfort in small, dark places where they can hide and feel safe. In their natural habitat, rabbits protect themselves from predators with underground tunnels they can run into and hide.
Make sure to make your rabbit a hideout, like a wooden house in the style of a small kennel, so that they can have alone time and feel safe when needed.
Rabbits’ teeth will grow continuously all their lives, and they’re designed to be worn down to the right length by grinding away at food. In the wild, a rabbit’s buffet menu often includes hard vegetation such as hay, twigs, tree bark, and other material that requires lots of chewing. The extensive chewing keeps their growing teeth under control.
Spreading their scent
Like many other animals, rabbits are territorial creatures and they love marking their territory by spreading their scent.
In order to mark their territory, a rabbit will often do something called chinning.
Rabbits have scent glands under their chins. When they rub their chin against something, a tiny amount of their specific scent is deposited on that object, essentially marking it as theirs.
Rabbits also mark their scent through their droppings, urine, and licking.
Rabbits are very clean animals, and they will spend a lot of time grooming themselves. They don’t like your greasy or dirty hand on their fur, and their breath or body doesn’t release any bad odors noticeable to a human nose.
Rabbits are curious creatures, and they love having the chance to explore new places and run around.
Make sure to provide your bunny a large enough space to run around and satisfy their explorative nature. You can even build a nice playground area for them. Cat tunnels are great gifts for your rabbit as they simulate their tunnels and burrowing systems.
A good massage
Studies have shown that petting is beneficial to the health of both you and your bunny. Petting your bunny decreases their heart rate, and increases a happy molecule in them called serotonin.
The best places to pet rabbits are their forehead and behind their ears. They also love getting strokes down their back or around the shoulders.
Rabbits are highly social animals. In the wild, they live in large colonies that have intricate rules and hierarchies. As pets, they still have these social instincts, and they love to spend time with the other members of the household.
It’s important to give your rabbit high quality hay. It needs to smell nice and be dust free. Fresh and greenish hay is better than brown hay.
Be careful of some bagged hay from pet shops. Many have not had the dust extracted.
Rabbits are very active and energetic animals. Their bodies were built to run fast so that they can escape from predators. To maintain their health, pet rabbits need a lot of space and time to exercise.
Eating their Cecotropes
Have you ever caught your rabbit doing this? Well, your bunny is eating their cecotropes, which are soft feces that are nutrient-rich.
When your bunny appears to be bathing their belly and they come up chewing, they are actually eating a cecal pellet. It is from these cecal pellets that rabbits get the majority of their nutrition.
It’s important that you as a loving pet parent respect your rabbit’s nature. So, if your rabbit eats their own droppings, let them, as preventing them from their own nature can cause anxiety and confusion.
A little sunshine
Recent research suggests that sunlight is important for a rabbit’s health.It helps them get their vitamin D, which keeps their bones and teeth healthy.
If your rabbit is stuck in sunshine for long periods, they will overheat and suffer from heatstroke which can be life threatening.
Being with you
Rabbits might be in just a small part of our lives, but to them, we are their whole life. They appreciate you and try to show their affection in many ways. Spending time with them will make them happy, and will lead to a longer-lasting and trusting relationship. Make sure not to isolate yourself from your rabbit.
#2. Digging some dirt
Rabbits love to dig. In the wild, they dig holes for shelter, for maternal reasons, to create warrens, to hide from predators, and to regulate their temperature. And beyond instincts, bunnies also dig for fun. It helps them let off some energy.
While rabbits in the wild dig all the time, pet rabbits rarely have the opportunity to. Luckily, you can fill a container or cardboard box with dirt so your rabbit can dig in. A digging box is one of the best free toys you can make for your little pet.
