personally, I think that rabbits are very complex to care for. They need hay, pellets, and vegetables, and must be spayed or neutered so they can be litter trained and to prevent health problems. I consider them one of the most expensive in terms of vet care, since if they get sick, they may need a lot of care quickly.
The biggest thing is to not think of them like a guinea pig or a rat which needs to be in a cage, but more like a cat or a dog, which need free roaming of the house for exercise, and then to be contained if there are things they can get into.
Rabbit.org is one of the best sources for information around!
I definitely agree. Rabbits are NOT a low maintenance pet. Between all the different foods, letting them out of the cage for play time a few hours per day, cleaning the litter boxes a couple of times per week, and all the damage they can do, they're probably higher maintenance than any pet besides dogs. At least rabbits don't need to be walked several times per day, regardless of weather conditions, which IMHO makes dogs the highest maintenance pet type.
Remember, rabbits will chew on walls, carpet, furniture, wires, and anything else they can get their little jaws around, and they really can't be trained not to do that. The best you can do is block off areas where they can get into trouble, and occupy their attention with other things to chew on, so they'll be too busy to chew on the things they shouldn't.
For instance, Flash isn't allowed in my bedroom, because I have too much wooden furniture and wiring (computer, stereo, etc) that I wouldn't be able to keep him away from. So I just keep the door closed. And in the living room, I've got cardboard boxes (weighed down with heavy stuff in them to keep him from moving them) along the walls, to keep him from pulling up the edges of the carpet or chewing on the corners of the walls. Even with precautions, I'd say Flash has already eaten my security deposit.
The point is that you need to be ready for the commitment of dealing with all these problems if you take in a rabbit. WAY too many bunnies are purchased at pet stores, especially around Easter because people want a cute "Easter bunny", then dumped when people realize that they're not like guinea pigs that you can keep in a cage and ignore most of the time. I'm pretty sure that's how I got Flash - I found him literally wandering the streets by himself about a week after Easter this year.
Also, if you do end up getting a rabbit, get it from a shelter, not a pet store. Don't encourage the breeders. If none of the dog and cat shelters around you have rabbits, google the House Rabbit Society web site and see if they have any branches near you. I can pretty much guarantee that unless you're truly in the middle of nowhere, there's a stray bunny in need of a good home within an hour drive of you.
