What Your Rabbit Is Telling You

Words are very important in revealing and portraying someone’s emotions. Words make the world more expressive and meaningful. However, words can sometimes be destructive. Therefore, it is important to be aware and mindful of the words that are blurted out because great consequences may come after. In short, words are powerful in the conduct of everyday life.

There are times that we can’t find the right words to express something, right? When this happens, we make noises hoping that these are enough to portray whatever we are feeling. Thousands of these can be made, but at the end of the day, it can be very effective in delivering a message.

Animals are known to make noises since they are unable to speak. Lions, for example, roar to get the message across, snakes hiss to tell something, and other animals make noises to attract a mate or scare an enemy. There are many of these that can be heard when you go into the wilderness.

If you are thinking of getting a pet, you should be ready for the noises they make. You wouldn’t want to appear rude by dismissing your pet’s attempt to communicate with you. They may be called noise, but these do mean something. Thus, it is important that you know what to expect so that you won’t get agitated when you hear one.

If you want a pet rabbit, then it is helpful that you know the noises they make beforehand. Here are some of these that they tend to make. Hopefully you can understand the message:

1. Tooth Grinding (Soft)

– This means they are contented and delighted.

2. Tooth Grinding (Loud)

– When they make this sound, it signifies discomfort or suffering.

3. Grunt

– It means they are happy, excited and interested.

4. Growl

– This signifies they are agitated or angry. It might also indicate a fear of something.

5. Scream

– This is their way of saying they are in great pain. Upon hearing this, it would be best if you bring them to your vet. There are times that this means panic, too.

6. Snort

– This indicates pleasure while eating or grooming. You should be happy when you hear this because it conveys happiness.

7. Foot thump

– It can mean two things: they either sense danger or they are just expressing frustration or anger.

8. Mating Noises

– This may sound inconceivable. When hearing such, it would mean they are mating.

Generally, rabbits are silent but there are other rabbits that prefer to be more “vocal” in expressing whatever they feel inside. It is great to know the meaning of the noise they make because you will know when they are happy, contented, sad, and sick.

Aside those mentioned above, it is important that you provide your pet rabbits with everything they need from food, shelter, grooming, and other care requirements. If you cannot provide them with what they need, then you should consider giving them back to the shelter.
