It’s Rabbit Awareness Week, but how much do you know about our long-eared friends? Here are some interesting facts.
1. Rabbits are social animals. They can get sad and lonely without a companion. They enjoy the affection and company of other rabbits. A lack of stimulation can result in poor health and behavioural problems. The primary objective of this year’s Rabbit Awareness Week campaign will be a Buddies for Bunnies pledge to inspire pet owners to consider suitable friends for their single rabbits by encouraging re-homing from welfare centres.
2. Essential foods. If you want to give a treat to your rabbit, opt for veggies and fruits, however their digestive systems require fibre. Hay and grass are essential to a rabbit’s health, without it, they can become malnourished.
7. They require a lot of tender loving care. Many people think that rabbits require less of a commitment than dogs or cats. However, rabbits may require even more attention and effort than their feline or dog companions. Remember that rabbits can live 10 years or greater, so make sure that you’re ready for the responsibility of a lifetime.
