What to know about bunnies?

We are thinking about getting a bunny, but have never had one before.

  • They poop everywhere, throw bedding everywhere, bite and can break their own backs i pick them up wrong. Unless you are keeping it in an outside hutch... I would not recommend them for a home with small children

  • They stink, they can bite, they're quite tasty, but a little greasy & their pelts make nice coats. :p

  • guinea pigs are less maintenance. They have a harelip like a bunny.

    Of course I would answer like that!

  • as far as I know- not good for kids really because they don't like being picked up or held/ cuddled and can break thier backs trying to get away...
    don't give them baths- they are clean animals and very temperature sensitive
    research what they can and cannot eat as far as fresh veggies/fruit goes
    they need hay and pellets as well.
    they like to chew things- thy will eat cords, carpet, clothing... watch them when they are let out
    make sure they have a big enough cage- they can be potty trained to go in a litter box
    they get freaked out by noises and can take time to warm up to and trust people...

    my advice is to do some research FIRST :)

  • Wow, the bunnies DD was playing with liked to be held and cuddled (that is why I changed my mind about not getting one). We really want a dog or cat but can't have either. She didn't like the guinea pigs though.

  • Feral after seeing DD play with the bunnies on the 4th he changed his mind.

  • I agree with all of the above - with the exception of the dwarf Netherland breed of rabbit - they are much less likely to scratch, do not grow very big. I have had rabbits and many, many guinea pigs. The Netherland rabbit was my favorite.
