YES!!! It is very easy to litter train a bunny. Bunnies are naturally clean animals and don't like to urinate where they sleep or eat, so naturally they choose a bathroom for themselves. I've never owned a cat but I've heard they are easier to litter train then cats. I have a house rabbit myself and she was potty trained 2-3 days after I brought her home.

Why should rabbits be spayed or neutered?
I'll summarize this answer into this: Behavioral, personal happiness, cleanliness, smelliness, and for health reasons. Please contact me or search my website to find out more.
Should I get a rabbit for my child?
Rabbits don't make good children's pets. They are very fragile and have slender bones that can be easily broken if dropped. Rabbits also scratch and bite if provoked. A Holland Lop (especially one of mine...lol), would make an amazing FAMILY pet.
If you could get another pet, what kind would it be?
I would probably get a puppy. I just LOVE puppies!!! Or another rabbit of course.... :)
Why did I start this BLOG?
I have a love of sharing information with people and teaching people, and since I LOVE and know a lot about rabbits, why not?? Plus you get a free BLOG with Weebly (my website provider).
What kind of housing is best for my bunny?
You can keep your rabbit indoors or outdoors in cages, hutches, a shed, free-roam around your house, ect. Personally, I think that having a house rabbit is the best way to keep a bunny for many reasons. I have articles elsewhere on my website on this subject.
How many rabbits have you had/do you have?
I currently have 6 rabbits (including my house bunny). One is for sale and one will be for sale later in April/May. With more on the way hopefully! These are the only rabbits I have owned.
How do I get my rabbit to stop licking me?
Personally, I would never try to get a rabbit to not lick me. Licking is how rabbits show affection; when you pet your rabbit, they see it as you grooming them, which is a sign of love that rabbits do to other rabbits. Licking is just returning the love.
Are your rabbits affectionate?
I keep my breeding rabbits outdoors, and all of them are affectionate, friendly and sweet. They beg for attention and always come to the front of the cage whenever I pass by. All the babies I sell as pets are the same way, always! I think Hollands are one of the most affectionate breed.
How can I bond with my rabbit?
When you first bring your rabbit home, he will be very scared and a little stressed out. At first, don't mess with him too much. For the first three days, hold him minimally for 5-10 minutes only. Once the rabbit starts coming to the front of the cage to see you and check things out, you can start holding it and letting it out for longer periods of time. With Hollands, that won't last long!
If your rabbit runs away when you come to the cage, and struggles when you try to pick him up, begin the friendship by NOT trying to pick your rabbit. Give him treats (like oats) in his food dish. Try to feed oats to him out of your hand. Scratch him on the head or rub his nose. Eventually (if you bought the rabbit from me), he will warm up to you and you will start to see progress. Depending on the rabbit's personality, it might take longer for others.
How old are your rabbits?
Gracie is 1, Sir Lancelot is 5.5 months, Cinnamon 7.5 months and the two babies, Ronald and Jingle, are 3 months.
How old were you when you got your first pet?
I was 10 when I got my first pet, a Bearded Dragon. I was 12 when I got my first bunny.
Do you dislike cats?
Actually, yes. My mom and I are very allergic to them. I used to have cat nightmares when I was little. The sharp, pointy teeth and retractable claws just really creep me out (don't ask why). I think it's cool in tigers and lions, but just not in house cats. There are a bunch of house cats running wild in our neighborhood and they scare away all the nice birds and squirrels that I love.
How many pets do you have?
I only have the bunnies. My sister has a Zebra Danio fish (Swifty), and my brother has a Russian Tortoise (Mickey from the Ninja Turtles).
What does spay and neuter mean?
Spaying is for does and neutering is for bucks. Both remove the reproductive organs; the testicles in the buck, uterus in the doe.
What is the gestation of a female rabbit?
30-31 days, commonly 31 but Gracie gave birth around 11 PM on day 30 with both litters.
How old is my oldest bunny?
Elsie, my house rabbit, is 4 years old in October. We bought her from a breeder when she was 7 weeks old.
Thanks for reading, I hope you learned a lot about bunnies and about me :)
