I am a totally new bunny owner, so I have tons of questions. My 12 y.o. daughter went to a local fair with her aunt, and they bought the bunny without even letting us know. The bunny was sold as a "senior", I believe they sold her because "she couldnt have babies". Not sure if she was infertile or what. We were completely unprepaired, didnt have proper setting, etc. We keep her indoors, and I bought a biggest possible indoor cage for her.
I am trying to figure out how to make her living most pleasurable and enjoyable.
1) She stays indoor in a very large cage by Prevue. The cage is in a living room. We used to keep it in garage, but Ive read that bunnies can get depressed, and I felt bad for her. So we moved her into the living room so that she could have more interaction rather than being by herself all the time.
It turned out that she is a social rabbit and loves human attention. She loves to be petted. If we are busy, she starts jumping around a lot to get attention. When we open a cage, she jumps right on the lap.
Here are my questions:
1) I love to let her out to jump around the room, but the floor is wooden, and she poops and pees. Poop would be not a big problem, easy to clean. But urine is a problem. All other rooms in the house have carpets. Is there any way to let her jump around without damaging floors?
2) The weather is nice, and I am thinking maybe we should get her an outdoor hutch, fence an area around large enough for her to hop around. We have a large lot. We could take her outdoors for at least few hours a day. I am worried because I dont know if she is going to like to be outdoors or not. She seems to be so afraid of everything. What would you recommend?
thank you. I have tons more questions.
