From smaller American Fuzzy Lops to larger French Angoras and Harlequin rabbits, rabbits of all breeds and sizes are simply adorable.

Rabbit cages refer to rabbit housing intended for indoor use, while rabbit housing intended for outdoor use are known as rabbit hutches. As natural herbivores, it's important to give your rabbit plenty of hay, grasses, vegetables and food specially formulated for rabbit health. Rabbit supplies, such as various types of bedding, litter and litter pans are also important for the maintenance of your pet rabbit. By learning more about pet rabbit care, you can determine which rabbit cages, supplies, food and treats will perfectly suit your cotton-tailed companion, as well as the right bedding, grass blends and rabbit hutches that will promote your rabbit's health, longevity and happiness.
Fresh air is important to all animals, especially rabbits, which is why rabbit cages should always be set up in an area of your home that receives a constant flow of fresh air. For outdoor rabbits, it's always wise to make sure their rabbit hutches are equipped to keep them safe from other animals that may cause them harm. There should always be an abundance of hay to chew as well as a plenty of water within their rabbit cages or hutches, as well as toys to keep them occupied. Rabbit supplies meant for preventative care, such as flea and tick spray, are important as is frequent grooming.
While most rabbits don't enjoy being handled and held very often, they can be quite affectionate once they bond with you, and even enjoy being petted and brushed. When outside of their rabbit cages, they may chew on electrical cords or other hazardous household items, which is why it's important for them to be supervised at all times as well as put into rabbit play pens. Rabbit supplies designed for grooming are necessary as frequent brushing and occasional nail trims are essential for proper hygiene. While toys and treats help keep them occupied and satisfy their chewing instincts, rabbit hutches and cages can be kept clean with liners and other cleaning supplies.
