I have a pet rabbit and they are super super easy to take care of

They generally only last for about 4-6 years if they live outdoors due to the climate. My rabbit lives inside which is a lot better for their health and he is 8 1/2 years old today!

When they get bored of their cage, take them outside on a specially designed rabbit leash (which you can get from pretty much any pet shop) or let them roam the house, but make sure that you watch over them carefully as they love to get into miscuing :)

Depending on what type of rabbit you have, it is best to keep it in a large-ish cage. Remember a small rabbit such as a Netherland dwarf (which is the easiest to take care of) doesn't need a palace as a cage as it should be given plenty of time to run around.

Rabbit's hate routines. If they are let out at the exact same time every day they get bored. If for some reason they don't get let out at that same time they freak out. It's a good idea to mix up the time when your rabbit is let out, within a 2-3 hour time frame. If they can run around more than once (say in the morning an afternoon on weekends) they would love it but as long as they are let out they don't really mind

Watching a rabbit run around is fun at first but can get boring after a few weeks, so after they trust you, start playing games with them. Same rabbit's love playing with those mice things that are meant for cats. You put it on the ground next to the rabbit, and it may pick it up and thrash it around. Eventually (mine did) it may hand it to you, but don't worry if they don't.

You can also put a light blanket over it and watch it find it's way out.

Have fun playing with your rabbit, and it will love you no matter where it's hutch is. But an indoor hutch is definetly better, away from birds and stray cats, and out of the freezing cold and boiling hot.

P.S. don't worry if it's like 2 o'clock in the morning and your rabbit's not asleep. Rabbits will go to sleep when everyone in the house is in bed and the noise is at a minimum. If you get up in the middle of the night and it's awake, it probably heard you get up. But occasionally they do sleep when everyone's around, but they sleep standing up with their eyes open. You can tell because they breathe more through the chest and their nose doesn't twitch as much

How do you take care of lost rabbits?

If the rabbit is grown, take care of it just as you would if you had brought it home yourself. If the rabbit is a baby, it will have the best chance of survival if you give it to a wildlife rehabber or someone from a rabbit rescue organization. Baby rabbits are very difficult to hand-raise, especially if you don't have experience.

There's no way to answer that question because laws vary from region to region. To determine the laws that apply to you, contact your government. Killing the rabbit over tomatoes is not justified. Take the rabbit to someone who can take care of him, or use a live trap and take the rabbit away from the tomatoes. Killing the rabbit is morally wrong.
