Most people keep pets in their homes and there is a wide range of pets that one can decide to keep. There is also a wide range of reasons why people keep certain pets. Some people like dogs because they are sources of security in homes. Others like cats because they also keep the population of rats low in homes. Among the various types of pets that are kept, perhaps one type that is not common with most people and one which needs lesser attention is the rabbit. There are so many breeds of rabbits one can choose from, and in fact some breeds are extremely rare and to get them you have to import from known breeders. There is a category of people who abhor the fact that they can live in the same house with pets, however good they may look. They hate the idea of cats or dogs dropping hairs and fur all over their carpets, and leaving their droppings anywhere in the house. For such people, the rabbit can make the perfect pet since they do not have to live in the same house with them.
Rabbits are awesome creatures, which have beautiful fur and nice eyes. Breeds like the chinchilla are known to make good pets, with their various colors and drooping ears. They feed on plants and cabbages, but one can purchase food pellets for them from animal feeds stores. They multiply quickly and mature within a few months. Rabbits like to be held by their owners on their laps, and they are generally gentle. They should be protected from predators and harsh weather.
