The House Rabbit

It is not easy being a house rabbit: - to be taken back to a stranger’s place, given living quarters which people think are appropriate, being fed food which may not be familiar and worse still, to be watched whilst having a meal, to be grabbed and caressed without permission, to have your space constantly invaded and so on. You get the picture. It can be a very stressful time getting used to a new place and just as stressful when people do not understand the signs and sounds the house rabbit sends out as messages for help.

Here at HRSS, we understand if you encounter situations or observe behaviors which baffle your minds and have you at your wits end. Trust us. We have been there. We are no experts. But with the consolidated knowledge and experience from all our members and friends, we hope that what you read here will be of help to you. Here, you will find many answers such as:

  • How to read their behaviours
  • How to deal with their individual temperaments (yes, each house rabbit has its own unique character and temperament)
  • How to understand your adorable house rabbits, and all their funny antics
  • And much more …

For medical concerns, there is the healthcare section with references to common health issues and recommended ways to heal and care for house rabbits.
