People often call Caroline asking if we have rabbits that like to be held. Well, there are some rabbits that don’t mind it too much for a short period of time. But, the truth is rabbits like all four feet on the ground.
This is why before you get a rabbit, you need to learn all about rabbits. People often expect that they are going to be like a cuddly toy rabbit. But that’s not the case. This is why they are not good for children as most children want to pick them up and hold them. If the rabbit gets scared, the child can get scratched and the rabbit gets dropped.
Don’t get us wrong! Rabbits are sweet, gentle endearing creatures. They can have great loving relationships with their humans. You just have to learn the best way to live with a rabbit.
We love to lay down on the floor and wait for one of my rabbits to see us doing so. Without fail, they will come running over and lay down with us to get ear rubs and head strokes. Sometimes. they become playful and run around us and jump on our my back. Then they settle down again for some more love.
Try laying down on the floor with your rabbits! It’s a great way to spend time with them on their terms.
