Image text/texmacs Companionship
The companionship of other rabbits is important to rabbits, but neutering is essential to prevent pregnancy and aggression. The rabbits in the picture lived as a bonded trio for many years. There are two neutered males with a spayed female hand-reared wild rabbit. There are some occasions when rabbits may live without a companion. Examples include pet rabbits, especially entire males, that are closely bonded to their owner and receive a lot of attention. Loss of one of a bonded pair in a household that does not want to keep rabbits forever is another situation. Some older females can be difficult to bond again and seem to enjoy their own company.
