Behavior & Personality

Most rabbits are pretty independent animals. They don’t really like to be picked up or cuddled, though some of them will as they learn to trust you. Spooky and Scully are both very different when it comes to personality. Scully is pretty stand off-ish, and doesn’t like to be picked up at all. She will be upset with me for a while if I have to pick her up for any reason. She also doesn’t like to be pet unless it is on her own terms, SHE chooses when she wants to be pet. If you try to pet her when she doesn’t feel like it, she will run away. Spooky, on the other hand, loves to be pet, as long as it isn’t by a child. Every rabbit has a different personality. The most important thing to note about behavior is that rabbits will show affection very differently than cats or dogs, but this doesn’t mean that they don’t show it at all. You can learn a lot from your rabbit just by paying attention to him or her. Here is a GREAT website that also helped me learn a lot about why rabbits do some of the things they do.
