 Right now I just have some slips that we made to go over the floors that are made out of sheets. As you all know, this requires a lot of cleaning. I've noticed that a lot of people have been using rubber for their bunny's floors & it seems like that would be much easier to clean.

Anyone here have rubber floors? Is it okay for the bunny's health(just in case they're like "Oh, what is this? *nibble nibble* ewww")? Easier to clean?

Thanks!

KokaneeandKahlua has done rubber-flooring for her bunny room. As far as I know she likes it and it's very safe/easy to clean. It is rather expensive tho. Another option that is cheaper and easy to clean would be a remnant of linoleum.

We use rubber as bunny "landing pads" at each step so that bunnies don't slip when they are hopping up or down. They chew a little bit here and there but don't seem to interested in it. I think if your bunny is really chowing down a lot of it that could be a problem, but otherwise I don't think it would be too harmful. They would probably just poop it out

Oh, that's an awesome idea! If I cant afford to cover all of the floors with rubber then I will definitely look into just getting a few for landing pads. I just hate seeing my little babies slip while jumping up or down!

It is a very good idea to have something secure and non-slip where buns jump to or from... some buns are better than others on smooth, slippery surfaces.

I don't have much to add on the rubber flooring topic but bunneh, your bun looks so much like Comet!!! There is another bunny on here, Otto, who looks a lot like him to but wow yours has almost all the same markings!!

Here's the link to the rubber flooring I got. It's in home depot or home hardware, near the outdoor carpet/mat section in the flooring departments. It was about five dollars a linear foot (so almost three square feet for five dollars) and we installed it right over carpet-so it's super soft and water proof. I love it too because it's 'tacky' so there is traction whereas lino and the like cause bunnies to do the 'bambi'

Awwww jnc!! They do look a lot alike! Pongo & Gizmo(his brother; my avatar picture) look very similar also but Gizmo has a little brown spot on his neck. My mom thinks I'm crazy because every time I see a black & white bunny on tv I'm like "Aw it's Pongy" :]

Kokanee, thank you so much! I will definitely go check out what Home Depot has
