would a kitten/cat get on with a house rabbit?

if it is very young yes. how old is your kitten? also the bigger the rabbit at maturity the less chance of it becoming prey.

if you get a kitten before a certain age so the younger the better beng with a rabbit will take away its urge to hunt. i have seen pics of adult cats with mice running all over them because they have been introduced at a young age. jsut supervise the kitten at first and the rabbit as they can be just as curious! should not be a problem. my cats used to touch noses with my pet rats!

should be fine, maybe the week before get something that smells of the rabbit for the kitten(s) to scent and something that smells of the kitten(s) for the rabbit to learn so both will have meet the scent before so be familiar and not frightened by it.

i used to have a rabbit that used to be let out of her hutch every evening for a 'run' round the garden.I say 'run' loosely, as she used to spend the whole time chasing my cats about!

The cats were terrified of her grin
