Living With Bunnies

jenniferleeThe SF Gate has a nice article on the joys of having a pet rabbit and traces the origins of The House Rabbit Society. The society was founded in 1988 by Marinell Harriman, who published The House Rabbit Handbook three years earlier.

Harriman found that there was little information out there on how to raise a rabbit as a house pet. She learned everything about indoor rabbits from her own bunny, Herman.

The article also discusses misconceptions still held by many regarding house rabbits. The article interviews a woman, Jennifer Lee, who took in her friend’s rabbit only to learn that everything her friend told her about rabbits was wrong.
