Default 2016 Cages You've Made

It's another new year...

So let's see your cages!!


This is the thread for people to post photos of their current (or past) cages. It's a great way for new bunny slaves to be inspired (and fun for everyone else too!).

As usual, let's keep discussion to a minimum.

We'd like this thread loaded with photos, not with chatting.

Thought I would bump this thread. The following set up is *not* mine. I found it on pinterest a while back and saved it for a potential future idea. Perhaps it will inspire someone checking out this thread.

This is it when I thought it was nearly done but have decided to make some changes. Buns aren't liking the ramps

^ You can usually skip the ramps altogether. The ramps just eat up space. And bunnies can hop up (provided the floor surface isn't too slick). Here's an old NIC cage of mine I used that never had ramps.

Our previous rabbit, spent nearly 11 1/2 years sleeping everynight in our bedroom under the bed. She was allowed to run the house when we were home, but she was closed in the bedroom when we were gone. Her litter box and water bowl were in our bedroom.

Don't want to make a long story. Bottom line. My wife doesn't want the two Flemmish babies in our bedroom. The babies have been in there. They are really motivated to get into our bedroom. I think the reason is that the carpet under out bed is covered with rabbit hair from the previous bunny shedding. I'm sure they can smell were the previous bunny marked the carpet.

We have an extra bedroom full of junk. My plans are to move out the junk into a back yard shed, put a bed in this room and give the room to the bunnies.

My wife has suggested hutches to put them in the back yard. I don't want to ever keep them outside at night. (The weather here in So Cal is relatively benign) That's why I bought Flemmish. With their size, I don think they'll ever get attacked by a feral cat.

I liked the bunny home in post #3. We could do that here also.

Lucky's away-from-the-dog retreat and bedroom. She has free roam in the living room, kitchen, and our bedroom when we are home and stays in here when we are at work.
Edit: I have no idea why it's upside down haha

One of mine isn't co-ordinated enough to go without a ramp between levels so have carpeted the ramp going from the first to second floor and added a carpeted step to get from the second to third floor. Its not pretty but at least he can get up there for now until I find a better solution.

Have also modified it so it has double doors to easily clean the first and second floor and a the top swings out to clean the third floor.

Here are 3 different cages I've either built or modified. The first is what I call the Berry mansion and was specifically built for my Berry boy who is a very active lionhead lop. The cage is 56 inches long x 2 feet wide by around 2 feet tall. The panels in the center open completely to have nice large door.

The second could be called a smaller rabbit mansion. This I actually built last weekend and is on my screened in patio. This cage is currently housing a young lionhead (which is pictured). It is similar to Berry's cage, except is 42 inches long x 28 inches wide by around 26 1/2 inches tall. This one I put in a shelf, about halfway up, which is covered in coroplast. Soon I am going to cover the coroplast with some fabric to make it less slippery. I put some a piece of fleece in there to try to cover it but the little guy just rearranges it. He can get up on the shelf (and jump down) just fine. The center panel in the front opens for a door.

The third is a cage I modified to make it bigger. This was a few years ago and I no longer have the cage (nor the rabbit that was in there), but thought I would include it.
