Rabbits are very shy, timid and tender at first but once they got to know you; they are very warm and friendly. They are super active and can play around endlessly. It’s quite easy to care for a rabbit; all you have to do is, feed them healthily and your way to go.

Having a pet rabbit can be busy sometimes especially if the rabbit is just a baby. But do not worry; they mostly sleep during the day and becomes active during dawn and dusk.

There are many varieties of rabbits and almost all of these varieties have the same food habit and diet. So whatever rabbit you are having; their way of eating are all the same. Well; most of my neighbours would ask me; ‘How do you feed them? with what do you feed them?’  and stuff like this. But the fact is; rabbits are the very clean creature.

They eat healthily mostly greens and grass; sometimes fruits but unlike other pets their favourite is greens. You don’t have to worry about buying them; a piece of meat or milk like what you did for cats and dogs but just plain vegetables.
