It’s Rabbit Awareness Week so if you’re a new rabbit owner or are thinking of getting one as a pet, you’ve come to the right place!
Read on for our top tips on rabbit care, and what to consider before buying one.
Rabbits are social animals and should never be kept alone
Rabbits need other rabbits as friends and will become very depressed if kept alone. You should always have at least 2 rabbits to keep each other company.
Rabbits need spacious living accommodation
Whether they live indoors or outdoors, rabbits need spacious living accommodation and access to a large running area to meet their welfare needs; a hutch is not enough!
Rabbits need the freedom to exhibit natural behaviours
Rabbits need the freedom to be ….. well, rabbits!
They need to be able to display natural behaviours like running, digging, jumping, grazing and binkying (binkying is when a rabbit leaps in the air for joy!).
For this they need access to an enclosed garden or big run where they can let rip and behave as they would in the wild.
