Must-have materials for rabbit care

Rabbits are simply not just Easter gifts, but are a long-time commitment just like a cat or a dog. While it is often thought that rabbits require less maintenance and taking care of, it is exactly the opposite of that.

1

Taped wires

Taped wires

Rabbits tend to chew on almost anything they can sink their teeth into, and that's bad news. Care must be taken to see that they chew on the right sort of things, and the off-limit things must be whisked away for good, or modified to be bunny safe.

Diet list

Diet list

Just because rabbits are portrayed eating carrots does not mean that carrots are their primary diet--it is actually bad if so. Research carefully as to what is the right food for your bun, and compile a list so as to always recall.

Flooring

Flooring

Agile and always fast are bunnies, and that's they're nature. Should you have very smooth flooring at your place, your bun can easily hurt itself--yes, they can even tend to break their legs. Spreading carpets and rugs will help a lot in minimizing whatever physical injury they may be prone to.

4

Bedding

Bedding

Its important for the rabbit to have a comfy cushion at where it is going to live in, or lie in. Hay and paper pieces are in the list, but NOT sponge or cotton.

5

Cage

Cage

The place where your rabbit is to live in must be big enough to accommodate all the physical whims of your bun. Make sure you don't settle on a small one, but go for a big one instead so that your sweet pet can move freely.

Cardboard boxes

Cardboard boxes

Craft those boring brown cardboard boxes into shapes that your bunny can travel through and play. Cardboards are great as they're safe for the buns to chew on as well!

7

A SOLID bank balance

A SOLID bank balance

Contrary to popular myth, bunnies are high-maintenance pets--which means a lot of expense when it comes to food, play things, grooming material and of course, hefty veterinary bills! Be prepared to spend a lot till the point that your wallet might cry before you get a bun-bun or two.

Toys

Toys

Bun-buns need toys to distract them from their boredom. Cardboard boxes, cardboard rolls, toys that emit jingling sounds, small objects like balls that they can push and toss around to play with...the list is fairly basic.
