Adopting a Domestic Rabbit: Here’s What You Need


If you want a quiet, gentle, and loving pet, consider adopting a domestic rabbit. You’ll only need a few basic rabbit supplies upfront, which makes adopting a bunny as easy as ever. The sooner you get these essentials, the sooner you can fully enjoy spending time with your new pet rabbit.

Habitats and Bedding for Rabbits

While rabbits generally don’t need much space, domestic rabbits still need a habitat of their own. Their habitat should have plenty of space for the rabbit to move around, as well as space for food and water. The more space you can create for your rabbit the better. This way, your rabbit can comfortably lie down and explore.

Their habitat should also include rabbit bedding to both pad the cage’s bottom and provide absorption for the litter tray. Rabbit litter is made from multiple materials including wood shavings or recycled paper. The bedding should be soft, comfy, and have good odor-absorbing properties.

Rabbit Hay, Pellets, and Treats

Feeding your pet bunny a healthy diet starts with a steady supply of hay. Hay is a central part of a rabbit’s balanced diet alongside feed pellets. Adult rabbits should be allowed unlimited amounts of hay. Timothy hay is a standard staple, but you can supplement this with oat hay, orchard hay, or other hays.

Carrots or other fruits and vegetables like bananas should be reserved for special treats. Be mindful of what you feed your pet bunny, as they have complex digestive tracks and can get sick easily. There are also a ton of healthy treat options that your pet rabbit will love. Hay, both in raw and pellet forms, should make up about 80% of your rabbit’s diet.

Bunny Chew Toys and Accessories

Like all rodents, rabbit teeth continue to grow throughout their lifetime. In order to wear them down, they need to constantly chew. The best way to keep them from chewing household items is to give your pet bunny chew toys. Besides aiding in teeth health, your pet bunnies will have a lot of fun playing with their toys.

Pet Bunny Grooming Supplies

While rabbits are generally very clean animals, they do require some additional help with grooming. Your pet rabbit’s coat will benefit greatly from regular brushings. This can be either done with a special brush or with a grooming mitt. Grooming them regularly is a great opportunity to socialize with your pet bunny as well as keep them clean. If they chatter their teeth while you do it, that’s a happy sound akin to a cat’s purr.
