Then, the cat who sat beside immediately imitates how the rabbit jump after observing a while. But, the movement of the cat was completely different from the rabbit which is even more rhythmic. The rabbit was shocked with a stunned expression by the cat’s action and thinking ‘Is the cat mocking at me?’.

Rabbit is a standard herbivore where it does not need to eat any meat. Rabbit is not only more in line with this kind of eating habits but also benefits their growth and development. We have had this knowledge that carrot is their main food to eat yet wild rabbits do not even eat vegetables. They rather chew on weeds, grasses, and clover rather than vegetables.

People in the older generation said that rabbits are smelly. In fact, if you have a closer look at the rabbit’s poop you can tell that it is made of grass clippings plus it is hard round shape. Hence, it is impossible to produce any bad smell. What happens is because of the early farmers who did not pay attention to the cleanliness of their living environment which causes the smell and the prejudice against rabbits begins from that time.
What makes every owner be surprised is rabbits eat their own poop sometimes and deal with it again. It may look rough, but poop is an essential part of the rabbit’s diet.
