Yes, rabbits can very happily live as house pets.

There are many house rabbit associations in the US, UK, Europe and Aus and this is becoming a popular way for people to have pet rabbits.

The best place to start looking for answers is http://rabbit.org which has a wealth of information about house rabbits.

the key points

Neuter/Spay (this applies to both indoor and outdoor bunnies) they are generally far happier, less hormonal and hence aggressive and make much better pets in the home. It also reduces issues of smell.

Bunny Proof Rabbits has a natural inclination to chew... and this applies as much to hay is it will to wires and delicate furniture if they can get there teeth on it. So, hide away wires, protect the things you don't want chew.

Quick Tip Rubbing Soap base/skirting boards is a great way to stop a bunny eating them, also you can do this on fabrics, i.e. Sofa bottoms etc.

Proper Diet Make sure you bunny gets a decent diet. They cannot and will not live on scraps from the table. The diet should consist mainly of good quality hay, fresh greens and a small amount of pelleted food. Sugar is actually very bad for bunnies, as is dairy, meat etc.

N.B. Chocolate is extremely poisonous to rabbits!

Litter Training Litter training a rabbit is generally a straightforward thing, but is greatly helped by having spayed and neutered animals as they will not mark areas for territory in the same way.

Most rabbits will pick an area they want to use as their "toilet" you just need to put the litter tray down there. Make sure there is a good absorbent base of non clumping litter and add a little hay to the tray as it will encourage them to come over and use it.

A last word... Consider giving a home to a rescued rabbit. There are many many rabbits out there without homes who would make wonderful house pets.

Make sure you spend some time researching and learning about any pet you want to give a home to. Nothing can beat knowledge when it comes to caring for another life.

No. In fact, it is better to keep them indoors; it has many advantages. If you keep them indoors, they become more bonded to you, since you are probably indoors most of the time. If you keep them outdoors, they will feel more in their natural habitat, therefore they forget about human bonding. Another disadvantage to keeping them outdoors is that a cat, coyote, or even a dog could walk past their enclosure frighten them, and possibly give them a heart attack, which could lead to death. One possibility is that you could buy or make a playpen or hutch and put your rabbit outside for some of the day. They would get to eat grass and be in their natural habitat for a while. If you choose this possibility however, you should watch out for digging. If your rabbit digs, then you can put the playpen or some chicken wire in the ground a few inches and stake it in.

In a cage. In the laundry room or sun room. - no laundry rooms are not appropriate places to keep pets especially sensitive rabbits. if it is an outdoor rabbit, a shaded area of the garden with a comfy, strong, safe hutch and access to grass. if it is an indoor rabbit, an open room, with daylight a living room or hallway or even a study is best because it is quiet, cool and a relaxing environment for the delicate rabbit to live in.

As long as you take proper care of both the rabbit and the birds, it should be fine. You have to be careful to keep the conditions hygienic, but you should do that anyway. Make sure the rabbit has a place to hide, and a place to run around. I kept a parrot and a rabbit in the same area for several years. Both animals were healthy and happy.

Where can you keep your rabbit overnight in winter without a cage is a cat carrier ok?

A cat carrier is too small to keep a rabbit in for anything other than short-term transportation (like to and from the vet's). A cat carrier is definitely too small for the rabbit to stay in overnight. If you don't have a cage for your rabbit, consider "bunny-proofing" a room where the rabbit can stay (or even a large closet, so long as there's air flow), or closing off a section of a room or a hallway with baby gates. A dog crate could also work. Wherever you put the rabbit, it should be safe; she should have unlimited access to hay and water; and enough room to stand up her full height, stretch out her full length, and hop a few paces at least. See the related questions below for more info and helpful links.
