Rabbits make great pets for adults and children 10 years of age or more. They are not recommended for young children. Bernie and Gabby are both indoor rabbits who need to be inside your house with you. Rabbits develop strong bonds with people and even other animals. They will feel more connected to you when they see you, so finding a place in your home where they can connect with you is very important.
There are many comfortable quarters available for indoor rabbits. A dog exercise pen is easy to put up and fits any space. Rabbits also like to have a den where they can rest, which can be a cardboard box or a rabbit igloo. After a nice rest, rabbits also need time to play, and exercise. Early morning or early evening is their most active time, which is a perfect time for you to play with them.
After being neutered or spayed, rabbits can be easily litter box trained. Bernie will need to be neutered, and Gabby will need to be spayed.
