^ Be careful with the plastic bags. I'd be surprised if bunny doesn't start chewing them at some point.

You may want to consider getting a piece of rolled linoleum instead. They have super cheap options. Just be sure the 2 x 4s cover the edge of the lino.

Your bunny's a cutie!

^ Just to add for the rolled linoleum- you could probably do the cage for $5, I did my rabbits entire room for about $50 so it is so affordable and easy to clean if there happens to be an accident or mess! Highly recommend

Well it was time for an upgrade because we took a break from bonding these two due to one getting out while the other was having exercise time and they had a fight. That was a month ago. Also my maternity leave is almost up and I will feel better leaving them all day if they have more space. My husband built a wall out of spruce and chicken wire to divide this area of our basement. We are switching the rabbits between enclosures every 24 hours or so, to prevent them becoming overly territorial. We will try bonding again soon. I will add some tubes and other fun stuff as ideas strike me.

Default Entertainment Center Hutch

It's been years since I've had buns but recently adopted a bonded pair (sisters, actually). It was so nice to adopt and know that they already loved each other, were spayed, and had all their shots taken care of.

I managed to find an entertainment center for free on craigslist but then spent a lot on materials and paint (I wanted to make sure it'd be safe for them to chew- ended up using a mixture of chalk paint and milk paint). Finally finished it and they looooove it.

I made sure the lighting was recessed with a metal shell and they have no access to any wires. I've watched carefully and they've never bothered the lights at all.
