One of the most common questions people have about rabbits and cats is why they get along so well. After all, these two animals seem to have nothing in common.
In reality, there are a few reasons why rabbits and cats get along so well.
- Both animals are prey animals, meaning that they are naturally inclined to be timid and search for non-confrontational methods of survival. They will fight if they have to, but that’s usually only as a last resort.
- Rabbits and cats get along is because they both tend to be nocturnal (night time) animals. This means that they spend the majority of their time sleeping during the day and active at night. This shared activity pattern means that they’re more likely to cross paths, giving them a chance to get to know each other.
- Rabbits and cats are both herbivores. This means that they both eat plants, which is a commonality that can help them bond.
Overall, there are a number of reasons that rabbits and cats get along so well. Their similarities allow them to form a tight bond, even if they have very different personalities.
