Do rabbits hiccup?
Rabbits can get the hiccups, but they may or may not be audible. The sound of a hiccup is similar to that of a human, just quieter. If your rabbit is hiccupping silently, they’ll bob their head up and down. Rabbits hiccup quickly, so it can be worrying.

Can rabbits wear clothes?
Do the clothes fit? Sounds a little obvious, but it’s really tempting to put clothes that don’t fit very well on bunnies just because they are cute.

Rabbits need a contrast of light and darkness every day to moderate their body clock. Create a sleeping area that replicates a wild warren. This is a dark environment that your rabbit feels safe within. They can then enjoy natural light for the rest of the day.
