 Hey guys, I've been gone on the forums awhile, dealing with family obligations, holiday season, and taking care of my baby bunny Ralphy. When I adopted him in October I bought him an $80 cage which at the time I thought was perfect, but as he gets bigger, IDK. I let him out when I can. Do you think this cage is too small?

 

 Our room is super small and this is all we can fit right now. My husband has two dressers plus we have a king size bed. My dream cage for Ralphy would be this one:

 

 I would feel more content being away for hours knowing he's in there. It's only $18 at Costco for one of this NIC things. I'd have to move my Husband's dresser and our shelf to fit this in though.

The pet store cages are, on a whole all too tiny. Only way I would feel comfortable using a pet store cage like that with a bun is if there was an x-pen attached to the outside and the door was left open most of the time.

The first cage is too small, I can't see the second one.

Yes, that cage is much too small

I found that the NIC condo I built that is the same size as the second pic was also too small for my 2 itty bitty girls. It worked much better to have the xpen attached. Have you thought about just getting an xpen instead? They are easy to shape to fit to a space, they don't have to stay in a square, and you can put levels in them as well.

I've never seen a commercially produced rabbit cage that is bg enoug=the second one looks fine if you can do it Cages are too small for them to move and stand up -if a bunny lives in a cage, they need more than 4 hours out

I agree that the cage is much too small. If you were thinking of moving a dresser and shelf out of the bedroom to accomodate that larger NIC condo, would that give you enough space for an x-pen? You said that you already have one, so you wouldn't have to spend any more money.
