Some rabbits are toilet trained and allowed to wander round the house. We had a friend with one though and it was an incredibly boring rabbit!
Yes, i've met people who had a totally house trained house rabbit. Not quite sure what pet rabbits do aside from hop and eat. Never seen one roll in a sandbath, climb up a clothes rail, run on a wheel or build a tunnel system.
Come to think of it, hamsters are quite exciting pets really, when they're awake.

Could be a toss up between an outdoor cat and an indoor reptile then?
