    You can have a hide house/ a shelf. Also having a tunne will your bunny like to play with.

    Most of my bunnies love playing with their tunnels and would often sleep up on their houses/shelves ^^

    thanks for the tip! the reason i don’t have a hide house in her cage or anything like that is cause i feel like i’ll take up too much space. i did have a cardboard box in there for a period of time and all she did was flip it around lol

    In my country it’s law on bunnies to have at least a shelf or a hide house. One of my bunnies just chew his house to bits but love sleeping up on his plastic table

    woah it’s a law? that’s crazy. the cardboard box that was in her cage is now outside of her cage for when i let her out and she highly enjoys eating the cardboard lol

    How much time does she spend inside the cage vs outside it? If she's in there a lot, you might consider making an attached run with an x-pen. I have this one; it's the best deal I could find on the super tall kind that a) has a door for me to go through so I don't have to climb over and b) allows for large toys and cardboard boxes without rabbits jumping out. You can use zip-ties to attach it to two corners of the crate and then leave the crate door open to allow more room when your bunny needs to be locked up.

    We bought this cheap ASPCA cardboard house off Amazon and the bunnies adore hiding in it and chewing on it
