Large Indoor Rabbit Cages
Large indoor rabbit cages can be purchased or built onsite. Some pet stores offer large cages that give your rabbit plenty of room. These cages can range from simple constructs made of wire and plastic to cages that look like fine furniture made of cherry wood and wire.
Of course, you must take into account the size of your rabbit, how much floor space you can give up for the cage, and the size of your budget. While a beautiful cherry wood cage would look lovely, it does come with a hefty price tag. Less expensive cages can be had for $100 or less.
Look for one that will be easy for you to clean and fit through the door. It should give your pet enough room to stretch out and relax. There are many different styles of large indoor rabbit cages out there to choose from. Measure the space you have allotted for the cage so you don't bring home a cage that won't fit.
Some cages have doors that double as ramps so your pet can come and go as they please when you open it. If this is the case with a cage you are interested in, look at how the door is constructed. Is it strong enough to hold the weight of a rabbit? Will his feet go through the wire grid?
Ramps that are too flimsy for the rabbit's weight are worthless. Wire grids can have a mat attached to keep your rabbit's feet from falling through. You want your rabbit to feel safe and secure in his cage, not feel that it will cause him injury.
Another way you can go is to build your own large indoor rabbit cages. This is very simple to do with those storage cubes you can get at most stores like Walmart. Build the outline of your cage by securing the panels together. Add another layer on top. You can even make shelves with the panels for your pet to sit on. Zip ties work really well for securing the panels. Put a piece of vinyl flooring underneath for easy cleaning., making sure it is larger than the cage. Don't want bunny chewing on the edges of the vinyl flooring!
Shelves can be covered with carpet scraps secured in place by zip ties to protect your rabbit's feet from the mesh. You can make a door using zip ties for hinges and a clasp to keep it closed.
These kinds of cages can be tall with lots of shelves or wide, covering a lot of floor space. Really, you are only limited by your imagination. If you have a lot of floorspace available, this kind of cage can really create an ideal rabbit playground for your pet. They will enjoy racing around, playing with toys, and having fun.
Another way to build large indoor rabbit cages is to follow plans you can find online or in books on raising a pet rabbit. There are many different ideas out there to explore. Before long, your pet will have a unique, one-of-a-kind home to call his own.
