    Hi :)

    I have had a female house rabbit for 3 years now. She lives in my living room in a (very large) cage but is allowed to roam free when we are in. She has been spayed.

    I’ve always been conscious that rabbits should live in pairs and always thought about to getting a friend for her. We are moving to a new house soon with a garden so we thought this would be a good opportunity to get another rabbit as I’ve read this is best done on neutral territory.

    Any tips regarding what kind of rabbit I should get? Male or female? Old or young? We’d prefer a baby rabbit if this would be suited.

    Any help appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Spayed females and neutered males get on the best generally, age is less important than size. If you can, get a neutered Male similar to her size, breed isn’t all too important
    However I would suggest getting a breed with complementary personality traits to your current bun.

    Usually if you get a rescue rabbit the Rescues will bond them for you.
