Recently a Floppycats reader inquired about how she could introduce her new Ragdoll kitten to a Bunny Rabbit. Please see photos of her rabbit, Charlie, in this post.
Here are her questions:
- When I get my kitten, is it best to introduce them to each other or is best for my kitten to eventually find out that a rabbit exists in the house? If it’s better to introduce them to each other, how would you go about the process without either of them possibly getting injured/hurt?
- Once my kitten knows there’s a rabbit in the house, how would you keep a curious kitten out of trouble? (Examples: The kitten torturing/teasing Charlie continuously, attempting to play with him.
Charlie likes to hop around the house for about a half an hour to an hour and occasionally I put him on my lap while I watch tv. This is usually a part of our daily routine together, we’ve done this ever since I got him. I wouldn’t want this to change, being in a cage all day when it’s too sunny to be outside in his playpen, he needs the daily excercise. I’m worried my kitten may injure/hurt him, attempting to play with him. How would you go about this?
I believe all animals can live well together if they are taught mutual respect for one another. If you have cats and rabbits that live in harmony – please leave a comment about how you went about the introduction process
