A rabbit is one of the most wonderful creatures to be ever considered as pets. To have a rabbit in our homes entails some essentials in ensuring that the rabbit has a habitat conducive to its biological make-up and needs.
Rabbits are generally easy to take care of, are sweet to children and adults as well, friendly to other pets, and can be left unattended inside their cages for a few hours at a time. Some rabbit fanciers suggest the use of two cages if your budget and space would allow. Cleaning a soiled cage basically would take a long time to finish. Since most rabbit cages are recommended to be large as much as possible for the rabbit to play around, cleaning up a cage can never be done hurriedly. When you have an extra cage, you can simply transfer the rabbit there without having to worry about the time constraints you may encounter while cleaning a cage.
Now you will need to decide on the features that your cage should have. A stainless wire cage is the safest way to go. Aside from the fact that they are easy to clean and are safe, the rabbit will not be driven to chew on the wires. Never get plastic ones recommended for guinea pigs or hamsters because rabbits need adequate air flow on their cages. The cage’s width should provide more than enough space for your rabbit to roam around, and also for the additional accessories you will be setting up on the cage. A solid floor and a wide door are also vital.
Additional accessories should be included as well within the indoor rabbit cage to make play more available for your pet. Include water bottles, litter box (a rabbit can be potty-trained), a mat or heating/cooling pad, and some chew toys. Chew toys could be baby toys, wooden parrot toys, or simply cardboard boxes.
