Bonding is when two rabbits live together happily, much like a married couple. Rabbits are social animals and need companionship; if you have enough time to devote to your rabbit, there is no need for a second, but if not, it is recommended to get another rabbit.
Bonding rabbits can be a difficult process, and much research has to be done before attempting it. Rabbits are territorial, even after spaying or neutering, and will not be friendly towards a new rabbit immediately. There are certain steps to go through to get your two rabbits fully bonded.
There are occasions that rabbits prefer living alone. If this happens, are you willing and able to house two rabbits separately? If you do choose to get a second rabbit, a great way to do so is through a shelter - that way your rabbit can meet a variety of other rabbits until you find one it gets along with.
