Whenever one thinks of a rabbit, the first picture that comes to your mind is the soft fur, noticeable red eyes and long ears. Rabbits also have short tails which are upturned. They make good pets as they enjoy human company. They are usually calm. At dawn and dusk you would find them most active.

Rabbits differ in their size and color. Some different breeds of rabbits are Dutch Rabbit, French Lop Rabbit, Lionhead Rabbit, Netherland Dwarf and Polish Rabbit. The lifespan of a rabbit differs according to the breed, but is usually 5-15 years.
Rabbits can be kept indoors or outdoors. If indoors, keep them in a pen or cage, if outdoors they are usually kept in small wooden like boxes called hutches. They would need some extra safe space where they can run to exercise themselves. Remember to provide your rabbit with a bowl, ball or other toys as they love to chew.

Rabbits are herbivorous. You can feed them hay, fresh vegetables like carrots, spinach, turnip greens, parsley or broccoli. You can also feed them pellets. Several brands and formulas are available in the market. Do not overfeed them. Clean fresh water is also required for your rabbit daily.

Don’t forget to sometimes pat your rabbit on his head. He would love that.

Many people are not very comfortable in the company of dogs as they find many dogs to be too aggressive to be kept as pets. They can keep a cat as a pet at their homes instead. A domestic cat has a fine combination of grace and intelligence. What you need to remember the most is that a cat is a more independent animal compared to most other pets. Thus you would need to give it independence as and when it requires it. Secondly some people tend to take the issue of having a cat as a pet very lightly.

Although a cat has very few demands compared to other pets, nonetheless we should not ignore its following needs. You would need to spare some time for a period of 10-13 years to give it the care and love it deserves. Also your cat would need to be given its yearly vaccinations as well as worming every six months. You would also need to keep a certain amount of cash aside to take care of its medical needs as and when they arise. Take care of its daily food requirements which are not very difficult to meet with. Finally a certain amount of grooming provided to a cat can work wonders for its appearance.
