Hey! Guinea pigs can use a litter box too! They're just not as reliable about it...
I prefer guinea pigs because they aren't as high strung as rabbits. Plus guinea pigs don't need as much exercise as rabbits. Rabbits need to be out running around the house, and that's just not feasible with two dogs, and 2 cats. Both cats love rabbit, and have hunted the wild ones before. But they could care less about my guinea pigs. I have had guinea pigs since my mom bought me my first one when I was 10.

PS: The truly stinky guineas are the males! Wooo little stinkpots they are!

I adore rabbits. I have one beautiful, soft gray dwarf rabbit. She is the sweetest rabbit I have ever met.
And letting them out and the fact that they need lots of interaction and exercise is not a problem with me. . .I also have 2 dogs and 2 cats but I enjoy time with my rabbit too and I love bonding and interaction with her.

I love rabbits! I have a Mini Lop and what people have said about this breed is that they are like the Golden Retrievers of the dog world. Seriously, he is soo sweet and absolutely religious about using his litter box.

How are rabbits about chewing stuff? Can they be taught not to like dogs or are they more like rats and just nibble nibble nibble the live long day?

From the rabbit.org website:

Can I discipline my rabbit not to chew?
Discipline (clapping hands, saying "no") has a small role in stopping chewing behavior. Most people report that it's easy to make their bunnies understand them, but difficult to make them stop the behavior through the use of discipline only, especially if the bunnies are left alone for periods of time.


I think when you bring one home, you just have to assume that he/she's going to be a chewer. I find that when there's something for him to do (e.g. shredding newspaper), then he's distracted and will leave other things alone. I probably just lucked out when I got him, since he acts like such an angel. The best thing to do is to contact your local rabbit rescue/SPCA -- some of the foster homes sure know the personalities of their bunnies well.

Like I know the last time I checked, my local rescue actually had a rabbit that, due to some health problems, didn't have his front teeth anymore, and so couldn't chew cords, furniture, etc.
