Domesticated or domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus c units) more commonly called a domestic bunny, a furrier, a fur bunt, or simply a bunny, is actually a subspecies of the European hare. It was formerly used for fur trading and then became a popular pet. A domestic rabbit kept as an indoor pet can be considered as a pocket pet, since its size is usually small.
However, most people prefer to have pets like rabbits because they are fun-loving and cuddly. Rabbits also give the feeling of security and pleasure when kept with children. Most pet rabbits have been neutered, which means that they have had their reproductive organs blocked and thus do not produce any hormones, which usually cause obesity in pets. Moreover, neutered rabbits do not need to be fed a steady diet of dried pellets because they are herbivores by nature. Therefore, pet rabbit foods should be mainly vegetables and hay.
Pets like rabbits can live up to thirty years if they are well cared for, fed a regular diet, and given enough space and attention. Rabbits usually grow slowly, sometimes only a few inches per year, but they can live up to two decades if they are properly cared for. A rabbit can be an ideal pet because they do not hurt or destroy your household especially if they are not given drugs or poisons because they are not naturally hostile animals. Pet rabbits are usually easy to care for, however, you still need to be prepared with some basic things like a cage, some toys or hay, food and water, litter box, and grooming paraphernalia.
