Small rabbit hutch

You may or may not have cottoned on to the idea that a rabbit is a pet and should be with you, inside your home, enjoying the same luxuries as the dog, cat, guinea-pig, hamster, gerbil, mouse, snake, budgie, parrot etc. etc.

But where are most of our bunnies? Britain's 3rd most popular pet is more than likely at the bottom of the garden, usually on their own, in a tiny hutch, with nothing to do!

Of course, there are many bunnies that are not treated this way and there are lots of owners who enjoy the social benefits of having their rabbits live with them in their homes. This way of thinking is gradually getting through!
