These lovely creatures have the same requirements as any other rabbit for their living conditions, with the additional task of careful grooming by their owner. They need a hutch which will not hurt their delicate feet, but which will allow droppings to fall through. They require an area for shade and privacy, which does not need to have mesh on the bottom. This way their feet can have a break from the wires, which can become irritating to them. They need a constant supply of quality food and water, with salt, minerals, and hay supplements.
Many people choose to keep one or two angora rabbits as house pets. They are one of the most docile breeds of rabbits, and can be trained to a litter box. To learn more about keeping your rabbit in your home, check out the House Rabbit Society at http://rabbit.org/.
