Rabbits in the House?

People are often surprised to find out that rabbits can live happily in the house. Rabbits are intelligent and sociable, and having your rabbit indoors allows both of you to enjoy each other's personalities and companionship.

Life outdoors can be dangerous and lonely for a rabbit, and we are advocates of indoor homes only.
