Rabbits are a wonderful pet for families, adults and children. They have a very calming influence on families. They're a very sweet and very affectionate little animal. When they're happy, they're very expressive. They will run across the room and leap up in the air and twist around. That's called a little binky, so if your rabbit does a binky, then you know it's really having a grand time. They are a low maintenance pet in that they need, of course, a cage and hay and vegetables and rabbit pellets and fresh water and a few other items, but they're not ones that you need to take outside when you really don't feel like going outside in inclement or snowy or cold weather to walk them because they can be litter box trained. Rabbits may live up to ten years of age dependent upon the breed, so it's a significant commitment and responsibility to adopt or purchase a rabbit. If you're buying one for your children and if they lose interest you want to make sure the family understands you still have a commitment to that little bunny which may last quite a few years. And of course not all bunnies like to be picked up. They are prey animals and when something leans over 'em and then picks 'em up that can be a little scary for 'em. And it's always best to adopt or purchase from a breeder. A bunny that has been handled, fed, and socialized and handled from birth, so that you have a calm and docile and nicely tempered animal brought into your home.

They are very sensitive, so any small change can make them sick or even kill them. Signs of a sick bunny include a runny nose, tilting their head to the side, not moving around much, diarrhea, sneezing, no appetite, tooth grinding, drooling, and constipation. If have spots or scabs on their bodies, it might mean that they have fleas or mites on their skin. Since they’re so delicate, bunnies can die very quickly if they get sick, so they should be taken to see the veterinarian right away. 9 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Buy a Bunny | Save Animals | PETA Kids
