If you are considering buying or adopting a rabbit, you should consider the benefits and requirements of these special pets. Many homes have been brightened by the presence of this long-eared creature and conscientious rabbit keepers have long-term implementation of the interaction and relationships to look forward.
At the same time, every year thousands of rabbits are abandoned to animals shelters- or worse, simply thrown into the field, who do not take the time to properly educate themselves about the responsibilities of owning a rabbit. Rabbits need daily and weekly care and maintenance, as well as significant amount of investment.
When well cared for, rabbits typically live 9-12 years, so this is a long-term commitment. If you buy a pet rabbit for 12-year-old child, rabbit will be still alive when the child moves out of the house. If you just want a pet that will entertain your baby for a while, see a rat or other short-life creature.
