I noticed that some users with lots of experience keep only one rabbit. I was told that a rabbit needs a mate of his own species, that a human being could never substitute that. It would not be appropriate for the species, because wild rabbits live never alone. How do you think about this and what are your experiences ? (In Germany the animal protection people are against having single rabbits, they collect signatures to enforce a law against it... Thinking of breeders, this will never work, I guess. And yes they are strictly against rabbit breeders. The rescue orgs do not give you a bunny, if you don t intend to have a pair.) I had rabbits living alone and they didn t "suffer", they jumped around, lived cageless, flopped, did binkies, enjoyed their treats and rubs. That is not a cruel way to live after all. Living in the wild seems to be more cruel to me, although it is most appropriate to the species. Getting older than 2 years and visit the vet is not natural after all. But then: Watching bonded rabbits is so sweet. They love each other and surely would miss each other.
