This is an easy one! Any bunny is the right bunny!

Young, old, big, small, brown, white.... who cares! It's the personality of the bunny that will win you over, not the
colour of its fur or the size of its ears.

How many?
My only advice for choosing a bunny for your household, is that you decide carefully whether or not you can take
care of him/her adequately. How many is enough - one, two.... six? One or two bunnies is easier to care for than 3,
4, 5 or 6. Two bunnies already bonded will be much easier to look after than trying to bond them yourself (not that
this is a problem but the two you get may not necessarily like each other and you'll end up with two separate
bunnies to take care of instead of a pair).

Terrible teens
If you take on a baby bunny, be prepared to deal with the terrible teens at around 6 months of age. Your bunny may
bite, scratch, wee everywhere and you may regret ever getting that little fluffball. Don't despair though, we've all done
it and lived through it and after desexing, you'll see a whole new side to your gorgeous little friend that you'll love
forever. Don't forget though that desexing is costly, so remember you'll need some money when you get a baby
bunny - but it's definitely worth it as you'll be rewarded with years of bunny binkies & kisses!

Older buns
Taking on an older bunny (anything older than 1 year) does not mean that you will not have an affectionate friend.
Far from it! I've found that all the older bunnies that have moved into our place have been thrilled to get so much
attention and reward you for it over and over. Some of course are a bit wary and depending on their background may
need quite a bit of time to adjust and trust you but they all turn into gorgeous and loveable bunnies. Taking on an
older bunny that has already been desexed is also a cheaper option than the costs of visiting a vet (not to mention
the stress prior to desexing for you and your bunny and the post-operative care that you need to do).

Do you have enough time?
You will need to ask yourself whether you have enough time, money and attention to give to your new friend/s. With
any animal in your life, you will need to provide safe housing, good quality food and water, veterinary care and forget
long-term holidays (unless you're really lucky and have another bunny friend or relative to look after them sufficiently
- we haven't gone anywhere since 2002 - lucky we like day trips!)

This is not to put anyone off adding a bunny to your family, just to suggest that you should be prepared to put in just
as much effort with your bunny as you would with any other animal in your life. Bunnies are not an easy alternative
to a cat or dog and can at times require far more attention and supervision than Spot the dog or Fluffy the cat.

Do you have enough money??
Vets cost money and you will need to at least visit the vet once a year for a calici vaccination if nothing else. Be
