Frequently Asked Questions
Do rabbits need beds?
Rabbits don’t necessarily need beds, but many of them enjoy having comfy flat or semi-enclosed places to relax. Try getting a bed or mat made of edible grass or give a mini plush bed a shot and see if your bunny likes it. Note that some rabbits will use squishy beds as a bathroom instead and consider firmer choices or at least washable items to avoid unwanted smells. Towels and blankets make great washable bed areas, too.
Do rabbits need hideouts?
Rabbits do need hideouts or enclosed spaces in order to feel safe when they’re insecure or feel threatened. Rabbits protect themselves in the wild when they’re scared by running into underground burrows, and domestic rabbits have that same instinct. Whether you have indoor or outdoor rabbits, it’s essential to provide a hideaway or shelter with a solid top and sides—mesh sides won’t work because your bunnies will still feel vulnerable. A small wooden enclosure, hideaway hut, or even a cardboard box will give your bunny somewhere to go for privacy and safety and keep him feeling secure.
What are the best rabbit hideouts?
The best rabbit hideouts will be made of chew-proof or chew-friendly materials and feature solid sides, so your bunny feels safe. Materials like wood, edible grass or heavy-duty plastic work well, and you can find some cute designs as well as utilitarian styles to fit your tastes. The hideout may have one or more entrances and may be box-shaped, tunnel-shaped or even ball-shaped for fun rolling around, too. Experiment and see what your bunny likes, and don’t be afraid to try DIY solutions like cardboard boxes or repurposed household items made of bunny-safe materials.
