Why Does My Rabbit?
Rabbits are now the third most popular animal pet in the United Kingdom, following cats and dogs, but few owners understand their behavioural needs. Many pet rabbits develop problems which could be avoided if their living conditions were adapted to allow them to follow their natural instincts, and in this important book Anne McBride explains how this can be done and why it should. She describes the influences on behaviour, the history of the domesticated rabbit, how rabbits live and breed and the instincts, inherited from the wild rabbit, which make a rabbit do what it does. She also deals with a whole range of rabbit problems, arranged alphabetically, which owners have asked her to solve. The book covers both hutch and house rabbits and the specific problems of each, revealing an animal which is highly intelligent, learns quickly and has a very complex social life. A happy rabbit can be an affectionate and delightful companion.
