Are You Ready
For a Pet Bunny?
So the big question is are
you ready for a bunny? Well the answer to that is based on five simple
things. Do you have time, money, space, and enough commitment and
responsibility to care for a bunny? Bunnies need 2 hours a day of
simple running around and exercise time. You also need to consider the
money you need to set up the rabbits cage and care for when he or she
becomes ill. But most people have those down with no problem at all,
but when it comes down to commitment and responsibility the rabbit
loses this with its owners. Some families when getting a bunny don't
realize that having a bunny is a lot of responsibility and even
commitment. You need to maintain a clean and funk free cage, fresh
water, fresh food, clean bowls, and fresh veggies every day, and even
hay all the time. Also, did you know rabbits can live for 8- 10 years
if taken very good care maybe even longer? Rabbits are placed in
shelters most times because people don't realize what kind of a
responsibility rabbits can be. So if your starting out on your very
first bunny I would suggest getting one only. If your not so keen on
having a strong smell then go with a female. I for one am a proud
owner of not one, not two, but three bunnies. I can tell you first
hand they are a handful to take care of but I would not give them up
for anything. Oreo my Himalayan rabbit is about 8 years old today and
she despite many problems she had been through is a strong spirited
bunny. She proves everyone that meets her what a excellent bunny she
is. She cuddles with people, plays with you, gives you bunny kisses
and hugs, and even thumps when she knows your upset! How intelligent
is that? Bunnies make great pets, but you would definitely need to
consider the commitment you would need to make for your new pet.
Space: When providing adequate
space for your bunny always find out what breed it is, and how big is
can get. Like Flemish Giants are the largest of all the 37 breeds and
the New Zealand dwarf is one of the smallest of the breeds. There are
37 pure bred breeds but having a mixture of some isn't bad either.
Always find out how big they can become so you know exactly how large
the cage must be and to better provide space for your bunny.
Time: Do you have at least 2
hours a day to give your bunny free time out of his or her cage to run
around and play. This is a good time to bond with your bunny and to
have fun watching them jump and kick in the air. sometimes if you pay
attention to your rabbit you can catch them doing 180's. My one bunny
loves to show off.
Money: Do you have enough
money to cover food, hay and a variety of veggies? Also, you need to
consider Veterinarian visits as well if needed. Its always nice to
have them checked up at least once a year to make sure they are all
healthy and good to go.
Commitment: Are you ready to
commit yourself to your bunny? He or she may live anywhere between 8 -
10 years. Also note that the older they get the more calmer and more
bonded they will get with you as time goes on. I've owned Oreo for 3
years when I adopted her and she has never once bit me or anyone else,
cuddles with people, and is great with kids.
Responsibility: Are you ready to
take on having a bunny? Rabbits are great animals and can make a great
addition to your family. They are loving and comical to own and be
apart of your family. With all the stated things above considered and
if you think your ready for it then find one that you like and give
him or her a loving home. Always remember adopt don't buy for a pet
store as they are guaranteed a place till they are bought but some
shelters cannot promise the same thing. But if your totally ready for
a rabbit to be apart of your family today you can see some of the
bunnies we have up for adoption today.
