pets- rabbits

My friend has CF. We would like to have a rabbit as pet. Is this allowed? We prefer a cage in the house, that we clean daily.

Thank you,
Dear questioner,
Bunnies are nice pets. People react less allergic to rabbits than to cats or dogs. But as with all pets, rabbits can also carry germs.
Therefore, maintaining a good hygiene with common sense is wise.
For example, you do not kiss the animal, you wash your hands after touching the animal, do not let your animal eat leftovers from your plate and do not let the rabbit walk everywhere (not in the bedroom, on the bed, etc.) CF patients should not clean the cage nor the poop bin.
And of course you take good care of your bunny so that it does not get sick.
Best regards,
Prof. K. deBoeck
