How big should the cage be?

The bigger the merrier. It is just like us, we prefer to live in big and comfortable house than staying in a small room that you have no privacy and extra space for your own use. Therefore, always choose a large cage for your rabbits. The rule of thumb is to go for those cages that are at least 4 times the size of your rabbit after she’s entirely stretched out.

This animal is an active animal and she loves to run around. Thus, a bigger space definitely provides a better place for her activity and play time. For instance, you can also choose cages that are double storey. Your rabbits will love this kind of house.

Can you use a wire floor cage?

You have to understand that rabbits do not have pads like dogs and cats. They are not designed for this kind of flooring. Hence, it is always a wise choice to buy a cage that has a flat floor instead of a wire floor cage. If you must use a wire floor cage, make sure you provide your rabbit with a resting board or rug or clothes to make them comfortable.

If you are going to buy a cage for these cute animals, buy one with flat flooring. If you are going to make the cage on your own, then make it with hard flooring.

Cage time and outdoor time for your rabbit

A lot of people ask whether it is possible for them to let loose of their rabbits to run around their house. Do you know that rabbit actually sleeps during day and night time? And the time that they are awake and ready to play are usually dawn and twilight? So let them out of their cage during this time and try to play with them.

If you want to let your bunny run loose 24 hours, you need to be sure that she is familiar with your house. It is just like every other animals out there, you have to give them some time to let them get used to the environment. And after they are familiar with the surrounding, you can let them loose all day long.

You can let your rabbit loose outdoor as well. However, you must first ensure that they are safe when they are outside of your house. Predators like dogs, cats, raccoons, coyotes and more may cause harm to them.

Another very important tip that you have to remember is this, if you have a garden outdoor; make sure the grass has not been sprayed with pesticides or fertilizers. You may endanger your rabbits if the playground is poisonous.
