lol GP's wheeking can get to me. I think they're really cute though! My old bunny was a purebred mini rex (rescued her from my cousin) and she was the only "cuddly" bunny I knew. I wouldn't classify them as "cuddly" pets bc by nature they're meant to be on guard for predators. All the bunnies I know from the rescue and my own experience prefer to get loves and pet from the floor. They like having an escape route.
Yes, they need A LOT of room. Commercial rabbit cages are little cell blocks and shouldn't exist. I always kept my bunnies in large dog kennels and built my own cages/pens with NIC.
