How do bunnies cry?
The most common sounds a rabbit makes while crying are whimpering, squealing and grunting. Sometimes, they make high-pitched and loud sound similar to a scream. While that happens very rarely, when it does, it can be alarming. Further, when a baby bunny cries, it sounds very similar to a sheep bleating.
Is it OK to hold rabbit by its ears?
Hold rabbits gently but firmly - ensure one hand supports their back and hindquarters at all times. Help them feel secure by holding all four feet against your body. Never pick rabbits up by their ears - this would be extremely stressful and is highly likely to injure them.
Do bunnies like when you talk to them?
Rabbits like to be talked to as a result of their innate social nature and their intense underlying need to feel safe. As rabbits begin to trust with the sound of their caretaker's voice, they often associate this voice with love and protection and bond quickly with their owners.
