so i have a rabbit, milo, that i adopted back in january of this year from a rescue, so he is already spayed and was around 6 months when i adopted him! he lives in an xpen but the panels are longer than the average 24" long panels, the measurements are 6'10" long and 28" wide and 42" tall and it has a small shelf attached to it! the shelf is 40" long and 27 and 1/2" wide.
he is not a big rabbit, he is a holland lop - around 4lbs. anyway, my room is REALLY small, but if i were to get a rabbit, these would be my plans: i would get a loft bed and i have an old XL dog crate in the garage (milo's old cage before i upgraded) that would be enough space for a rabbit; especially if it were a baby. im not really leaning towards adoption unfortunately, i am looking at a breeder or someone on craigslist (sketchy i know but i would go over there and look at their housing and stuff) would that work? here are some pictures of what my room looks like, ITS VERY COLORFUL LOL each wall is a different color and i tried to make it so that it was "in order" in my photo stream? and the very last picture is a picture of my room in the panorama thing, and that's literally all the room i have, im sitting on my bed which is right in the corner so space left whatsoever:
so as you can see it's very small BUT once i get a loft bed i can put my old XL dog crate underneath it and there will still be extra room and i will be able to let the rabbits out more cause i dont have to worry about them peeing on my bed, cause they wont be able to get on it.
and as for the neutering / spaying that will not be a problem as i have a very nice rabbit savvy vet (she is on the list of vets in my area on the rabbit.org list and she is wonderful!) - the fees are not a problem, i know they are very pricey usually way over 200$ and i am not forgetting the fact that i will need to buy alfalfa pellets and hay and the rabbit's will need to be kept separate for a long time.
my concerns: i do believe i am ready - both financially and time wise for another rabbit. but i dont know about space? and if i have 2 rabbits will they play with each other or will they still play with me? milo will often jump on the bed with me and nudge my leg or hand for a massage! that is so cute i really dont want him to stop, and i also really want the other rabbit to socialize with me. and will it be a problem that they will be in the SAME room? but in different cages? or is that okay?
i just really want to have the expierence of having a baby rabbit, and taking care of it and watching it grow!
