    I recently rescued a rabbit from someone who was neglecting it- I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl (the rabbit, I mean. I know the gender of
    The person) but I am going to have the rabbit checked out by a vet soon. I have a slightly larger area outside the cage for Mallow to explore, but it really wants more room. He or she is an explorer! I’m trying to take it slow for the house though because I already have dogs and cats and I’m thinking the rabbit needs it’s own space away from other animals who Might not play the rabbit way. But my question is - since it’s in my home office and the office is fairly small, can I make a maze around furniture that I don’t want it to chew on? Do rabbits like that? And ramps for different levels? Or do they need more of a bigger, wide open area? As it gets stronger again, will it be able to jump onto my desk from
    The floor?
    I like to have projects when I’m avoiding work, and I’m done with the mural in the grandkids playroom.

    Rabbits love mazes. They will memorize where everything is, and then they get bored with it, so moving things around from time to time helps. Some rabbits like to be up high, and that can be a problem. If they can jump on a chair and then onto a table, they might do that. I have one rabbit that jumps into waste baskets, the tall kind that are sold for the kitchen, and then he can't figure out how to get out. Ramps are good, but often they are unnecessary, because rabbits are such good jumpers. Putting something out for the rabbit to chew on helps to keep them from chewing on furniture. My rabbits like branches cut from our fruit trees. Good luck with your rabbit.

    Oh My Gosh, I just laughed so hard at this. I'm sitting here imagining what it would look like him trying to get out.
