What do you need to take care of a rabbit?

Safe indoor housing
They can live free-reign in a bunny proofed room/rooms, or they can be contained within a puppy pen, bunny condo, or large rabbit cage. Buy a cage large enough for your rabbit to move around.

Bedding to cover the bottom of the cage
Common options are shredded paper, straw, and hay. Try to avoid most wood shavings, because they may inhaled by accident.

Grooming
A soft, rabbit-safe brush is essential for removing hair when your rabbit sheds and safety nail clippers should be used for trimming a rabbit's nails.

Toys
Buy a variety of toys for it, such as a chewing toy or a tunnel with spaces to go into.

Litter box
The type of litter can also change depending on your rabbit. Common types include silica cat litter, shredded paper, wood shavings that aren't pine or cedar, straw, and hay.

Food bowl
The best is a heavyweight ceramic food bowl this helps the rabbit keep its bowl right side up, since most rabbits like to tip their food bowls over. The best foods for rabbits are grass and hay. Give the majority of your rabbit's food as fresh good hay. Give your rabbit pellets and fruits and vegetables. Common vegetables include broccoli, carrot tops, beet tops, cilantro, collards, Brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage, and other greens. Despite common perception, giving a rabbit too many carrots can be very harmful. They enjoy carrots as small treats, but you should not feed carrots to rabbits daily. Weekly is usually fine.

Water bottle or bowl
It's a good idea to have a few. It is more natural for your rabbit to drink out of a bowl, but these can be knocked over, unlike the water bottle.
