I think rabbits are harding to keep as pets, but I would rather have rabbits roaming around in my yard than a cat. Then again, cats keep the mice away.

But rabbits might get eaten by a hawk in the yard, which isn't so likely for cats. However, I'd never keep either outside personally (not only do we have hawks here, we also have coyotes and not even cats will fare well with those, there are no outdoor cats here, and whenever there are, they are quickly gone).

Well I have both. But being as though my rabbit justed knawed my cord in half to my mouse for my computer and I had to rewire it, I think cats probably are better. None of my cats have ever done this. But I do love both animals.

I depends what you want from them! As pets, cats would always be my first choice. I find cats easy to care for and rewarding, but I imagine it's a matter of personal preference & what time & facilities you have to offer your pet.

No, no, no. Cats are the thing :-) They make far better pets in my opinion. I can't imagine cuddling a rabbit, and it doesn't matter how much time I spend with our rabbits but they still don't trust me. Mind you, rabbits make better casserole ;-) Hmm, do you reckon that's maybe why the rabbits don't trust me?

I think it's hard to say. It's like comparing apples and oranges. It depends what you're looking for in a pet. Rabbits may chew your furniture, but cats might claw your sofa. Although, rabbits might also dig holes in carpet. Rabbits eat hay and veggies, cats eat stinky cat food. Both use litterboxes. Both are clean animals. They come with different sets of health problems so it's hard to say which would cost you more in the long run too, except that rabbits are often considered exotics and finding a vet for them will be harder and might cost more. But the other unfortunate similarity, is that both are overpopulated and easily found in animal shelters. So if you do decide on a cat or rabbit, please adopt!

I have both cats and rabbits oh and a guinea pig. The rabbits are allowed to roam free in the yard as fully enclosed within walls but they have lots of beds where they build burrows. They also have a big double hutch with lots of beeding and pleanty of food and fresh water available. They are very tame and each day one will be bought into the house to be pampered by my son or myself. We have two cats, one is an outdoor cat and comes home when he feels like usually to be fed but the other is very nuturing and spend a lot of her time guarding the rabbits. In fact her and the black one have a love/hate relaionship and will chase each other around playfully. For me they are equal, the bunnies are cute but my cats seem to understand me more. Its weird they seem to know not to harm the rabbits or guinea pigs at home and yet I know for a fact from pressies bought home that they both go on killing sprees. So I am going to answer rabcat. LOL Ellie :D
