So I've been thinking about adding a small furry member to my family but need your opinions and advice!
I love my Shau Shu tremendously, but have come to terms that she's getting older :( She's my little ray of sunshine when I get home from work and see her running in her wheel, drinking water or holding the bars of her cage waiting for me <3
Im terrified and sad that in the near future, I'm going to come home and find that she passed. I think a good way to help ease the process is to start thinking about finding another small love sooner than later.
I've been looking at pets who require love and attention but not as much as a dog does. I'm extremely busy and sometimes don't get home until very late...So I need a pet who does well alone during the day. A hamster is really the perfect pet for me: small, adorable, furry and of relatively low maintenance all while still giving you love in return :) But I'm looking for a slightly larger pet who would sit with me and occasionally cuddle.

I'm pretty sure I've decided on a Rabbit and have been searching local shelters online. There are so many who need homes, and though I know I can't save them all...I'm pretty sure I can handle one :)
They aren't as easy as a hamster and I know they chew, pee and poop constantly but they're ok being alone during the day and are more of a legit pet.
I would be able to hold and pet it more than I can a hamster and walk it in grassy areas, sooo cute!
Does anyone have a rabbit?
What are your experiences with them?
If you have or had one, did you keep it inside?
How large of a cage do/did you have?
Anything I should know before taking the plunge?
If you come across any rabbits you think I might love and who need a home, email me the info to them!
Sorry, I have so many questions!
Any advice/ experience/ knowledge would be so appreciated! I would hate to take one a pet who was more work than I anticipated.
