Rabbits and Other Pets :

Rabbits are sometimes introduced into homes where there are others pets. Many people’s  love for animals extends beyond any one species, but the desire to have more than one kind of pet can create problems that should be given careful consideration before you buy a rabbit.

Rabbits and guinea pigs :

birds :

Birds that sing loudly or screech should not have their cage in the same room with a rabbit.

Dogs and cats :
These two animals first have to be taught  how to behave with a rabbit, and teaching them is successful only within limits, especially if a dog or cat has been your only pet and is used to being the focus of everyone’s attention.

In such a situation, jealousy and a hunting instinct that has not previously manifested itself may suddenly erupt, if the antipathy between the two animals is too great, you should either give up the idea of having a rabbit or accept that the two animals will always have to be kept separate.

however, the later alternative does not work if interior space is limited and there are children.
