Rabbits like massages

Most all rabbits will lay down flat for a good bunny massage. The rubbing of the pelt and muscle underneath appears to feel good to them. All the rabbits I have owned all loved to be massaged. They even fell asleep during the process. It is a part of grooming and bonding. It is especially beneficial for older rabbits.

This is absolutely true. So, the original person that posted this is NOT a liar!!!

My bunny will actually nudge my hand with the tip of her nose indicating that she wants a massage. When I now take that hint and give her a massage, she will lay out flat and ENJOY that massage that she will sit still for 5-10 mins for. It is the funniest and cutest thing to watch.

Not every bunny is alike, but I can say that they are very intelligent animals. Don't sell them short.
