Baby Bunnies: One thing you may not realize about bunnies is that they can have large litters of babies. A baby is called a kitten and the mother can have as many as nine at a time. That is a lot for one year but not for a rabbit. They are able to have multiple litters of kittens each year. The great thing is that the mother will leave them in a shallow den that is covered with the mother’s fur and other materials that are in the area such as grass and hay. The mother will not spend much time with the kittens so that predators are unaware that they are there. When they are a ready to move out of the den they will stay together as a family!
Pros & Cons of Rabbits as Pets: Although they are used and taken in as pets in homes all over they may not be your best option. You need to be prepared to look after them and also give them the love and care required. They need a clean area to live as well as a run to get their energy out. They also need specialized food that are high in nutrients and something to chew on to keep their teeth from growing too large. Before you decide to take on a rabbit you should know that shelters are full of them and take in just as many as they do cats and dogs!
Do Rabbits Sleep at Night?: Most animals are active either in the day or the night. When it comes to rabbits they are not in either of these categories. An animal that is considered crepuscular means that their most active time is at dusk and dawn. This is when the outside world is safest for a rabbit and her young to be hoping about.
Rabbits Love to Play: When you have rabbits as a pet you want to ensure that they have enough to play with. They are like a three year old child that will go through an entire play room and still end up bored. They need to have items to play with and chew on to keep them happy and enjoying life.
