Whether you’re starting your hoppily ever after with a new friend or upgrading your current bun’s digs, picking out his rabbit habitat is one of the most important decisions you’ll make for him. When he’s not out exercising and spending time with you, he’ll be playing, lounging, resting and eating in his cage. The best bunny habitats and cages provide plenty of space for your fur-iend, have excellent ventilation, make him feel safe and give you quick access to your bun. Two popular choices for a rabbit enclosure are rabbit cages and rabbit hutches.
Cages provide great ventilation with wire sides, come in a variety of sizes and allow you to keep a close eye on your friend. They are for indoor use only. Whatever you choose, you’ll see many pet rabbit enclosures and habitats have doors close to the bottom. That’s because bunnies like to get in and out of the cage on their own when it’s time to play. Leave the door open when he comes out to exercise, and you might find he returns back to his home when he’s ready to rest! Hutches are available for indoor and outdoor use. They’re especially great for outdoor use to protect your bun from adverse weather and predators. When you use your hutch indoors, it can be a charming addition to your room!
You can make rabbit habitats as inviting as can be with his essentials and some extra things for fun. Your furbaby needs constant access to rabbit food, especially grass hay. It will also be helpful to have a litter box filled with rabbit litter to train him to go to the bathroom in a specific place and keep his cage neat. To keep him entertained, add rabbit toys for him to play with and chew. Chewy is here with all the rabbit supplies you need to help keep your furball happy and healthy. Find your bunny buddy the perfect rabbit enclosure to make him feel right at home!
Frequently Asked Questions:
How big should a rabbit enclosure be?
A rabbit’s enclosure should be as big as possible. At a minimum, his cage should be four times as big as he is. Some smaller rabbits can live in cages that are at least 24 inches by 36 inches, while bigger rabbits should have habitats that are 30 inches by 36 inches and larger. You can make the most of the space by getting him a multi-level home. For example, the Kaytee My First Home Giant Pet Habitat has two shelves to give your fur-iend new perspectives and his choice of hiding spot.
Are cages bad for rabbits?
Pet rabbit habitats and cages are not bad for your furbaby. In fact, his home will quickly become his safe-space! Of course, it’s important to balance cage time with exercise and bonding time with you. Leave his floor-level door open when it’s time to play—you’ll find that he’ll go right back in by himself when he wants his privacy.
