Always clean your hands with soap and water after handling or feeding your rabbits and ensure children do the same. A rabbit should never be picked up by the ears or by a single limb, and 'scruffing' (holding by loose skin on back of the neck) an adult rabbit is not recommended. They prefer to laze around and sleep in their bed through the day, and are active at dusk and dawn, so are ideal companions for busy, working owners, and what better way to unwind after a busy day, than to fuss over your pet rabbit.
