Choosing the right pet for you: rabbits

Rabbits can make great pets, but just make sure you give them plenty of room in which to live. You’ll need to try create a partition in your garden, because if you let your rabbit loose the chances are he’ll eat every leafy plant you have! Keeping a rabbit cramped up in a hutch the whole day, however, is a bit cruel. Include lots of leafy, green produce for him to munch on like lettuce and spinach as well as a good supply of carrots and cabbage. If it suits you, you can add a tortoise to the partition. It creates a nice effect to your garden, giving a sense of openness and liveliness. If you have a dog, you need to ensure that he either gets on really well with your rabbit or that the rabbit is well protected.
