I just adopted two super soft, super sweet buns of my own from a rabbit rescue, so when I saw an opportunity to review this book I thought I'd see if it had anything new to teach me. In fact, it did - I didn't know you could dry bathe rabbits! All the other information was good - the same stuff I managed to gather between lots and lots of research and talking to the rescue. It's a quick read at about 80 pages - it took me around an hour. Just having all that in one place is really helpful, and I'd recommend it as a basic introduction to whether or not you're ready for a house rabbit to anyone thinking of bringing one into their home.That said, editing and proofreading is really holding this book back. There are many grammatical mistakes and a lot of the sentences are oddly written. It's unfortunate because this is all good - and really important - information, but the lack of editing/proofreading makes it feel less credible as you read it. That is not the case at all, but that is how it reads.The author leads with a heartbreaking (and sort of difficult to read) recollection of her childhood experience with rabbits. It's tough to get through, but I'm glad she shares it, because it really hammers home very quickly that rabbits require much more care than people realize. After that, she covers a variety of important topics for the first time rabbit owner, including:- Pros/cons of owning a rabbit- Dietary needs- Choosing a vet- Litter training- Cage vs. free-range- Common medical problems and how to spot them- Rabbit behavior... And probably a few topics I've forgotten.
I found this book to be an excellent guide for anyone who is thinking about or considering getting a rabbit. It is a well written comprehensive guide about all the things a person needs to know and consider before they make the decision to get a rabbit as a pet. The book is well organized into clearly structured sections and even organized to include a table of contents about where to find what information you want to know more about.I really like how it informs the readers about how a rabbit is a big commitment and that rabbits can live for ten years or more. Most people don't know that rabbits as pets is a longterm commitment, and that having a pet rabbit typically costs the owner thousands of dollars in veterinary costs. I think this is a great book because it provides all the things someone should consider before making the decision to get a pet rabbit. Most of the general population are predisposed to the conception that rabbits are a low cost and low work but this book gives people the facts about how much time, and money is required for proper rabbit care. I think this is a great read for people thinking about buying rabbits since it is almost Easter, which is when many people buy rabbits on impulse, and soon abandon them to an animal shelter or worse. I voulenteer at my local animal shelter to help provide care for all of the abandoned bunnies when I can, and I also donate to support the rabbits at my local animal shelter.This book is an excellent source for anyone who has a pet rabbit or is considering adopting a rabbit. It provides all the facts about rabbit care as well which I thought was really great. It has chapters like cage and rabbit home, and has chapters on everything from behavior of rabbits to what kinds of toys to get and even the types of litter.
