- Rabbits don't like to cuddle. They have a self-image problem. Rabbits are prey animals -- eaten by coyotes and other carnivores -- so they survive by hiding from other mammals.
- They are used to being chased so they often don't like cuddling which they interpret as being captured.
- Bunnies start out cute but at about 4 months they become obnoxious teenagers. They lunge, spray urine and chew on things. They must be spayed or neutered.
- Rabbits require meals of fresh vegetables and hay and must have their nails clipped monthly and coats brushed.
- Unlike their low-maintenance pet counterparts such as gerbils or guinea pigs, they can live a long time, often 10 years.
- And if you've just had enough and dump your little bunny in the woods under the Disney-esque impression they will spend their days cavorting with other wild rabbits -- shame on you! In fact, domestic rabbits are a different breed, defenseless against predators. If left outdoors, they will be either eaten or starve to death.
