With the proper circumstances and a healthy environment, rabbits and felines may make a good team, particularly in cases where the bunny doesn't react fearfully to the latter's mere presence. In general, rabbits work better with cats that have calm and relaxed overall dispositions. The initial introduction of a cat and a rabbit can make a world of difference. If you introduce the fluffy duo to each other gradually and always in a neutral setting, you may be able to get some success in getting them adapted to each other.
Dogs are a similar situation as cats. If a canine has a mild and gentle temperament, he may get along with a rabbit just fine. It's crucial, however, to always monitor dogs around rabbits, especially at first. Doggies have a tendency to get overexcited around new things, so you want to take care to ensure that your pooch doesn't get a little too rambunctious around your bunny. An overly energetic dog may be very scary to a rabbit, especially at first.
Guinea pigs and rabbits also may be a suitable match. However, in some situations you may notice a rabbit becoming a little too bothersome for the guinea pig, especially when it comes to chasing activities. Guinea pigs generally aren't the biggest fans of being run after all the livelong day, and some rabbits may do just that. It's important to note, though, that all guinea pigs are individuals. One may get along famously with a fluffy cavy, and another, not so much.
While it is possible to have your rabbit get along with other pets it's important to do your research first and know what to expect so that you are prepared. Always use caution when introducing your rabbit to new pets, especially dogs and cats.
