I will try to answer that question about my English Angoras. Experience has taught me that rabbits are way more complex than the skiddish prey animals I originally thought they were. There is no single answer. Here is the best way I can explain what kind of pets rabbits are:
Rabbits are like horses. Both are prey animals and they definitely have minds of their own. You have to earn their trust. They form a relationship with you on their own terms. Even with personalities as unique as the individual. Rabbits can become pushy as well, like an surly horse, so you have to balance respect for them, with your own cool, calm and collectedness. I've heard it called the "Caesar the Dog Whisperer aura" of leadership. Check out Black Beauty or, my favorite, The Black Stallion if you are unfamiliar with one-on-one relationships with horses. A rabbit's digestive system is a lot like a horse, too.
Rabbits are like cats. My cats (and rabbits) always are for looking attention, but again on their terms. When out for exercise, my bunnies run round and round my feet, just like a cat. That's the bunny love dance. Rabbits have their own independent spirit about them as well. Sometimes they want to lay by me, and sometimes they just want to bounce away from me. Once again, they know what they want. Rabbits are clean animals. They groom often. My bunnies like to play with toys like cats. They will try to lay on my fabric when I am trying to sew, on my book when I am trying to read. They toss toilet tissue rolls and bat wiffle balls around. Rabbits can use the litter box as well.
In the end, I'd say that rabbits are a little bit of everything. They are their own unique kind of pet. I just love 'em!
