Say hello to Willow! She’s an adorable 7-month old rabbit. Like most rabbits, she’s very smart and interactive with people, and loves to have some time outside her cage to run around and kick up her feet (that’s called doing a binkie!) in a carefully supervised setting. Willow has a cage mate, another female named Dolce who’s a year old, and they need to go home together, as they’re pair-bonded, which makes them a 2-Fur-1 adoption fee. Dakin has LOTS of pet rabbits looking for homes right now, and from now through Sunday, their rabbit adoption fees are 50% off! Surprising facts about rabbits as pets:
You can litterbox train a rabbit pretty easily! Provide them with a box and put hay in it…they’ll know what to do!
Rabbits are pretty smart, and they will bond strongly with their person or people
They groom themselves more than cats
Rabbits love to play games that include running, and picking up (and tossing) toys! Give them a series of tubes to run through and they’ll have a blast
They’re shy by nature. When you first bring them home, be quiet and move slowly to make them feel safer
