Rabbits can be trained to use the litter box. Usually spayed or neutered rabbits are easier to train to use the box. Rabbits are ruled by their hormones, therefore even a well trained un-spayed or un-neutered rabbit will forget to us the litter box in a hormone rush.

There are many pleasures in having a pet bunny. Bunnies are affectionate, trainable, loving , and smart. They also have beautiful, soft and silky fur. When a bunny wants to be petted he stretches his head out low to the ground. Bunnies usually don’t like their face or feet to be touched. Very few bunnies like to be picked up and carried.

Bunnies are like us. They like their foods fresh, juicy, and bursting with flavor. The best diet is composed almost entirely of green leafy vegetables, and fresh hay. Before considering a bunny as a pet for a child there are a few things to consider:
1. Bunnies live six to ten years; Are you willing to commit that long?
2. Are you willing to take bunny with you when you move?
3. When the newness wears off will you continue to care?
4. Bunnies need lots of care and they chew on lots of things
Today bunnies are rightly considered house pets that require a lot of attention, if not more than a dog or a cat. Dumping a pet for any of the above reasons teaches a child that living creatures are expendable.
