    This is interesting.

    We had rabbits in the past but they don't seem to live that long under our care, I believe they need really focused care and attention.

    wow they are cute! My dad had rabbits 2 at first, then they became 8! They multiplied rapidly and my dad gave up of taking care of them because its a lot of work (to feed and to clean their u know what) so my dad decided to donate them in the mini zoo (farm) .. They look-liked Polish rabbit 🙂

    interesting facts and information about rabbits. 🙂 my kids like them. but we just decided not to have pets for now, maybe when we get settled in one country we can but now that's hard. i don't like my kids to get attached with their pets and later on leave them because we are moving again, although they can be shipped but that will cost a lot. 🙁

    Meaning to say we only have Polish Rabbits in the Philippines. I used to have a pair, their names are Peter and Apple but they died. And I replaced them with Guinea Pigs but also died after giving birth. 😀

    I want to have a pet again, we have 2 dogs and a pair of bird now.

    I like the Mini Lops 🙂

    Rabbits are easy to take care of. They rarely make a mess and would normally just hop around the house. It's easy to feed them too.

    I like rabbits, and I do have pets, though I never had a rabbit as a pet. I remember going to an aunt, in the countryside, and playing there with bunnies. So much fun! I had no idea there are so many breeds that could be great as pets!

  17. Fred Hawson

    Very cute. I never thought there were so many varieties. I will share this post with my daughter who loves rabbits.

  18. Ling Tan

    I have always wondered about having a rabbit as a pet. Heard that they can be toilet trained as well, and are easier to keep happy. My kids really like the Dutch rabbits. we shall see..

  19. Anne V

    Ooooh my fave is the Mini Lops, wish we could get one as a pet but not right now. My toddlers mights accidentally strangle it to death haha. These house rabbits are just adorable!

    so many cuties! i own a pet rabbit myself, having adopted her from my local shelter. she's born with splayed hind legs but still… a very hyper bunny who goes around destroying my furniture.

    The rabbits look so cuddlish! My zodiac is rabbit too… so somehow, I feel a connection with rabbits!

  23. lee rosales

    well one of my child hood friends has a rabbit pet and I find it not interesting unlike dogs and cats.

  24. Danessa Foo

    The rabbits looks so adorable. But as lovely as they look, I know it's a lot of commitment to take care of rabbits, as with any other pets. For now, we try not to cultivate the habit of having pets just because my daughter (and I) finds them cute!

  25. Rochkirstin Santos

    I didn't know that there are so many types of breeds of rabbits. The mini lops look so cute like a doll! 🙂

  26. Louise Banta

    I honestly didn't know there would be other classifications or breeds for this animal. They all look the same! Haha. I find the Holland lops cute to take care of. All of them actually looks nice to cuddle.

  27. Fernando Lachica
