Inside or Outside Rabbit

Your rabbit should live inside with you.

Predators, extreme weather, parasites, disease carried by insects and fly strike (maggot infestation) are just some of the dangers to a rabbit kept outside. Many rabbits fall victim to heat stroke when temperatures are eighty degrees or higher, especially if humidity is also high.

Rabbits are Social Creatures

Most importantly, rabbits are social animals who need interaction with their human companions.

Without opportunities for socialization, a rabbit is likely to become bored and depressed which can lead to anorexia or stress related illnesses.

Your Rabbit's Health

Rabbits tend to conceal illness so they will not appear vulnerable to predators

Because of this, they need to be watched very closely and taken to a veterinarian specializing in rabbits as soon as something is noticed.
