Indoor rabbit cages are good options for rabbit owners who don’t have the luxury of a yard outside the house. The good thing about having the rabbit housed within your home is you will not bother about having the cage to be made of sturdy materials strong enough to withstand various weather elements. You will only have to make sure that (1) the rabbit cannot go outside the cage without your supervision; (2) the size of the cage is large enough for the pet to freely move and play, and (3) the cage is properly designed to provide good ventilation for the rabbit.
- SIZE. When buying a cage, size is the first factor to consider. Generally, a cage should be at least 4 or five times larger than the size of the rabbit, or your may go bigger than that if your concern is more than enough space for its exercise. It has to be enclosed with wires, and never glass or plastic, so there will be appropriate air flow.
- DOOR. Choose a sliding door at the sides for the cage, instead of an opening at the top. This allows the rabbit to hop in or out, and you will not have to keep picking it up when it is time for you to clean the cage.
- TWO-LEVEL CAGE. When you do not have enough space in your room for the rabbit but wanted to provide it a large cage, invest on a two-level housing instead. Connect the upper part to the bottom with a ramp. You may have the upper part covered with wooden walls and the rabbit can make the room its sleeping haven.
- SOLID FLOORING. The flooring must be in wood. There are rabbit breeds that are not safe to put on wire mesh flooring because their feet cannot tolerate the strain the wires will cause on their soles.
