Rebecca is an extremely friendly and large rabbit. She loves being petted for as long as your arm isn''t tired, and she''s easy to pick up and hold. Her tempermant really stands out as one of the sweetest, gentlest rabbits.
She was originally from a hoarding case, but has since been taken in by our shelter and treated like a queen since she has been with us. She is very friendly and will hop right to the front of the cage for a chin scratch when anyone comes by. She is relatively clean and appears to use her litterbox most of the time.
Rabbit care is fairly easy to learn. Rabbits need an enclosure that is at least three times as long as their bodies and ideally twice their body length wide. The enclosure should be tall enough that the rabbit can stretch upwards and not touch the top with their ears. If the cage has a wire bottom, it must be covered with cardboard or paper liners. Ideally avoid sheets and towels as some rabbits chew on and ingest the fibers which can be fatal. They need access to clean hay and water at all times. Their diet should primarily consist of leafy greens, some vegetables, and small amounts of fruit, but they should also be supplemented with rabbit grain everyday served in an unchewable ceramic or glass bowl. They can learn to urinate and defecate in a litter box with time so provide them with one filled with absorbent, soft bedding that is big enough for them to fit their entire body. Rabbits need several hours per day of exercise outside of their cage. They need to be able to stretch their limbs, run and hop and tire themselves out everyday. This keeps them physically and mentally healthy and stops them from being destructive out of boredom. You can let them free roam in your home under your supervision, but make sure to keep them away from wires as they will chew them and could electrocute themselves. Many people set up an X Pen play area and move all the rabbits amenities into it for play time. Some cheap toy ideas are cardboard boxes, (without tape), toilet paper rolls, paper towel roles, crumpled plain paper, cereal boxes, phone books and any other paper/cardboard items you aren''t using anymore. All rubber and plastic items pose a danger as rabbits may chew and ingest them. The possibilities for rabbit enrichment are endless and it''s easy to do!
