Rabbits are soft and cuddly, and they make excellent pets. They can be easily housebroken and quite affectionate once they realize that you won't hurt them. A rabbit's cage should be its home. Don't forcibly put it in, or it'll soon consider the cage a prison. For the same reason, don't reach in and pull it out. Open the door and let it come out when it feels comfortable. Avoid cages with wire bottoms. They may be easier to clean, but the wire can hurt the rabbit's feet. A bedding of hay or even the pellets sold as rabbit food makes a good base for the cage. A rabbit will normally nibble on whatever you use on the bottom of the cage. It'll also go to the bathroom in the same spot each time, usually a corner. Notice where your bunny goes and change the litter there daily. Once your rabbit learns about litter boxes, you can let it run around the house as long as you're there to supervise. You can also let it outside as a special treat. Just remember, rabbits in the wild often wind up as somebody's lunch, and they have a natural fear of predators. If your neighbor's dog barks threateningly, your furry little friend may literally die of fright!
