Fresh catnip is safe for rabbits. It isn't poisonous, anyway. Some rabbits like it, some do not. As with all new foods and rabbits, when giving catnip to a rabbit for the first time, offer only a bite or two; gradually work up to a handful over time (at least a week). Keep an eye on your rabbit's health and wellbeing.

Only give fresh herbs to rabbits, not dried. Dried herbs are concentrated and the strong flavours can be overwhelming to a small rabbit. Generally speaking, avoid overwhelming or stressing out your bunny! Bunnies can react badly to shocking or stressful experiences -- they can get sick suddenly, or overtime they can turn into nervous pets.

It's best not to give cat and dog toys to rabbits. Rabbits can hurt themselves or become sick by playing with cat or dog toys (particularly by eating parts of them -- rabbits like to chew but they have sensitive bellies and can't eat just anything).
