First of all, you have to understand that miniature lops tend to be very independent. There are quite similar to cats in that way. While you may be tempted to play with them every time you have the chance to, they may show hostility if they don’t want to play, especially for males.

Like most lop eared rabbits, miniature lops should be fed high grade pellets, grass and hay, more especially timothy hay. Timothy hay is very high in fiber and fiber is essential if you want to keep your rabbit’s digestive system healthy. If you feed your rabbit the wrong type of food, he might get severe diarrhea.
