Best Answer

Rabbits have a unique sleep pattern called polyphasic sleep, which means they sleep in short bursts throughout the day and night. They have an instinct to be alert and attentive, so they have periods of light sleep where they can easily wake up. Even though you may not see your rabbit sleeping, it is likely getting plenty of rest in these short intervals.
