Ugh, well sometimes it can be good to just have one bunny. They can live quite happily on their own, and if you did have two, you'd have double the food bills, double the water intake and what happens if they're both taken ill and need vet care at the same time? Double the vet bills. However, two can be good. They provide each other with company during the day time when they're not sleeping, and they'll make your sides split watching their antics together. However, you'll have to make the enclosure bigger and the bonding process is no easy road for most.
So, don't just get a bunny for 'better care' for the other. Do you have room to house them separately whilst bonding? What if they don't get on? Are you going to keep the other one?
There are so many questions and queries. Maybe just stick to one for now, and think about everything getting another bunny is going to involve. However, if there comes a time when your sure you can do it, take your bunny bun-dating at a local rescue centre if its allowed. Let your bun choose their best friend. And ask as many questions here as you need!
I thought that two can live with more pleasure. They can play with one another and they can feel good to see one another. But i have no previous experience, i can not say it surely that they can live together or not.
O.k Friends! As you suggested. I will continue with only him but i can take another after some time or there is any problem also then?
As long as you have the money, resources and time to care for a pair of bunnies, they are perfect pets and they will fall in love - but they have to be neutered and spayed, and usually a boy and a girl, and it takes time to bond them--- most often, you should take your neutered or spayed rabbit to a non-profit rabbit rescue shelter and they will pair your bunny with a bunny that falls "in love" with your bunny! It is very romantic.
