Once you have brought your new bunny home, introduce him/her to his/her new hutch or cage and leave him/her to settle in for 24 hours. This is less important with adult owners but it is preferable when moving to a family environment with lots of noisy young children. This settling-in time helps young children learn their new family member is a living animal and not an animated toy!
Your rabbit should be handled at least twice daily and will probably enjoy joining you to watch a TV film in the evenings. Some rabbits are happy to lie (with full body and head support) on their backs and allow you to gently stroke their chest and belly.
