My silver rabbit

First of all a rabbit doesn't live for you, it's not like a dog who can be your best friend. A rabbit can cheer you up with its cuteness, but never expect it will feel sorry for you like a dog can. What I learnt is that you have to adopt the bunny when it is really young, if you want it to get use to your hands. Mine was young, but not a child when I bought him and he never liked being in my hands. He had his own will, I couldn't really control him. However rabbits are not stupid. I heard that they are like a 4-year-old human child so you can teach some easy tricks for them if you want. And most of them are capable of using their own 'toilet'. Even the male ones, like mine. But male rabbits use their toilet only for pee, sadly they leave their poo everywhere they go, but it's not a big deal I think. For eat the best you can give your rabbit is hay. It is the best for their teeth because they have to chew it longer than for example a carrot (yes it sounds strange but it is true) and also it is the best for their health because of the fibers in it. So my most important advice for people who just adopted a rabbit is to try to give them 80% hay and 20% other rabbit food if you want a healthy rabbit who lives long. Unfortunately mine has a secret illness or something and he hated hay. I tried all kind of hay but he was so stubborn, he just ignored all of them and ate very very little amounts of them. I still don't know why he hated it so much but perhaps it was the cause of his death. Even the doctor couldn't tell, but she warned me that if i ever have a nother one don't give him/her too much vegetables or fruits cause they can be toxic for bunnies because of the sprays some farmers use on them. So the best you can give your bunny is hay! And if you want a bunny, buy the biggest cage you can afford! Because the bigger it is, the happier your bunny will be!
