Sorry, can someone remove this post?
I love the toys and soft looking blanket, but I'm a bit worried about the hay at a place where a source of light and warmth can directly touch it. Your hay should stay fresh longer in a darker place, I think.
thank you i didn’t know direct light and warmth could affect the hay. it’s starting to get colder and fall is coming so the sun shouldn’t be as bright soon. for now i’ll look for some way to block the sun. i saw you asked about a hidey house, she has a cardboard box that she can hide in but it’s outside of her cage and she can go in it when she’s out to roam. it used to be inside but i felt like it was taking up too much space and she would never really use it to hide.
i cant get over how cute your rabbit is
My 4ft by 4ft rabbit hutches
Hi all, first time posting here, though the forums have been a great resource for info. I put a lot of work into my bunny domains for my two rabbits, Theodore and Snuggles, so I will take any chance I can to show them off. First is where they spend the majority of their time (often by choice):
My basement has a second kitchen not used for anything. It started off barren with a large shoe box or two and the small carrier shown, and for a while I didn't trust them to run around outside those carriers overnight or while I was not around to supervise. For weeks I observed how they would behave, what trouble they would get into, and adjust adjust adjust. It's never perfect. It's always a matter of inspecting regularly for any signs of trouble.
For example, if it looks like they are chewing on a place that I've tried to duct tape together, then I have to put the tape somewhere else. I went through several baby gates. My boy Ajay (who passed two years ago) was really good at escaping this room, and there were times when I didn't think I could make it work. Persistence, patience, vigilance.
I let them out whenever we are home so they can run upstairs and join me, but sometimes I have to cage them up there like if we need to open a door outside or if they need a timeout from carpet chewing. Otherwise, this cage seems to serve more the purpose of making them feel like they have a safe space to run to (they hate the smell of cooking and will hide in the box there).
Shared room with my single bunny.
Time for the 2020 thread everyone!
