I like the floppy eared rabbits. Dwarves are also cute. The last one I had died of motor oil poisoning. :( R.I.P Peaches.

I like all rabbits. I used to foster rabbits and have had rexes, mini rexes, Netherland dwarfes, lops, and mixes. My 10 year old rabbit looks just like a cottontail, but is larger than that. And my 2 year oldish rabbit is a lop, probably a mini lop or some kind of mix. I seemed to find Netherland dwarves to be the meanest.

But they're just so cute, I never pictured any of them being mean. Wow. How are they mean? Do they bite? My bunny was a floppy eared and he did this weird biting, digging thing with me, but I don't think he was intentionally trying to bite me. Then again I have heard of rabbits eating each other, is that true?

I want a bunny but I live in an apartment and I don't know how that would work *sighs* and I definitely can't keep it at my boyfriend's house because he has this huge cat that chases the rabbits in the backyard already. I heard that the dwarf rabbits live the longest, is that true? And if I were to keep one in doors couldn't I just keep it in a big cage? I'd be tempted to let it run around a bit in the house but I also heard that they chew up wires and I have nothing but cords and wires in my room!

In response to Conejita: An apartment should have enough room for a rabbit if you're willing to part with some space. Dwarfes do tend to live longest in rabbits. I've heard of them living to 13. But mixed breeds and other breeds can live 10 to 12 years as well, so I wouldn't go for a dwarf just for the potential of living longer. They don't take less space, contrary to popular belief, because they are equally active. I wouldn't recommend any space smaller than 8 square feet per rabbit, and 16 square feet or more would be preferable. Indoors is greatly preferable to outdoors, but you don't need a cage. You can have a free range rabbit inside and use a litterbox, or do what I do: a puppy pen over linoleum. Inside the pen, put a litter box and you'll have some very easy cleanup. If you absolutely want a free range rabbit, I'd recommend talking to a local rescue. Because some rabbits chew more than others. My 10 year old rabbit required everything bunny proofed (plastic sheaths over cords). My 2 year oldish rabbit doesn't chew, but she will dig carpets. Easy solution, block her access to the carpets. Pet foster parents will be able to tell you which rabbit would be best for you. Some are extremely well behaved, while others aren't. See if www.rabbit.org has information on rescues near you, or search www.petfinder.com as well. A rescue would be your best bet, as they'll know the most about the individual personalities of the rabbits they have.

My youngest daughter has a dwarf bunny named baby, and she is adorable. If I had a photo on the PC of her I would upload it for you to see. Baby is adorable, soft grey and white, and she has a very sweet personality. She is 2 1/2 years old. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your own Peaches.

We have a dwarf lop ear bunny name Pixie. She is gorgeous and thinks she's a cat. She sits on our lap for a lot of the day and has run of the house when we are home. My kids love her and she is very gentle.

I love dwarves. I have one and a flop/dwarf mix. They are so loved.
