As a rabbit breeder, I would say it is easy yet hard. It takes responsibility. They do not stink!
Trust me, unless you get a male that is a bad sprayer then he will stink but you can neuter him and he wont anymore. All you need to do is give food when they are out, frest water everyday, and lots and lots of attention! Females are not as nice as bucks but they are some cleaner, as for messes, litterbox train them, great for kids and builds responsiblity. The only problem is some people just buy rabbits for their kids and then their kids get tired of them and stop playing with them, making them lonely and then getting sick. Then you have to take care of them. Depends how motivated you are! If they dont get enough attention, give the rabbit to a better home! So all in all, how you take care of the rabbit is how hard it is. They do grow fast. They only live for 8 years average. They are not as expensive as cats or dogs and horses and sometimes fish! They dont need that much grooming, "care" such as cleaning out the cage once or twice a month. And they are so much fun to be around!Its so hard to resist!
