Indoor Rabbit Cage
for an Indoor Rabbit
Every indoor rabbit should have an indoor rabbit cage. A cage gives your rabbit a safe place to be when he feels frightened, nervous or tired. A cage can house their food and water as well as a litter pan if you use one. It also provides a safe place for your rabbit to be when you are not at home.
When you are looking for an indoor rabbit cage, you need to know your budget and how much room you have for the cage. You can go with a simple wire cage with a tray for easy cleaning. If your rabbit gets out to exercise a lot when you are home, this works just fine and it won't take up a lot of room. You can place the cage in a corner of your living area without any fuss. Make sure there are no house plants, cords or anything you don't want your bunny to nibble on nearby.
On the other hand, if you have a large area available for a cage and money is no object, you can get some really nice ones. Some even look like fine furniture. They provide your rabbit with large, beautiful living quarters while giving you a nice table to use for plants, books or other items.
If you have a nice big area for a cage but not a lot of money, you can build a cage out of those wire storage cubes. Take a look online to see how creative some people have been in setting up a home for their rabbits. If you choose to do this, make sure that you don't have a carpeted floor in the area of the cage and that it will be easy for you to clean.
Of course, you can build an indoor cage for your rabbit as well. When you build your own cage, you can utilize features of all of the cages mentioned above to create your pet a wonderful home that is also suitable for your home and lifestyle. Whenever you build a cage, make sure you can easily get your rabbit out of it if you need to. It should also be easy to clean, since you will notice any build up of urine and feces much more quickly in the house.
An indoor rabbit cage can also be made from a modified pet kennel. A large sized kennel can hold a litter pan, food and water as well as other amenities. You can also slip in a wooden or wire shelf in between the top and bottom of the pet kennel. Provide a ramp up and you have increased your rabbit's living area and given them a way to exercise very easily. Just open up the door to let your rabbit out to play when you can supervise their activities.
As you can see, there are many ways to approach an indoor rabbit cage. Take the time to figure out what your needs are and how you want to meet your rabbit's needs when you are planning their indoor home.
