I'm going to buy a rabbit pen, but I'm on a tight budget. I want to get it for my two little lionheads, but I'm worried the one i can afford is too small in the height, that they will be able to jump over it.. But they will be supervised mostly when in the pen.   The other one is more appropriatly sized, but a bit too expensive..

Affordable:

Expensive:

Question: How much time will they be spending in the pen? If they're going to be spending a fare amount of time in it, I'd go for the larger of the two. Just for more room and more toys to keep them happy. Just my opinion.

If you think they will be able to jump over the first, then they will. My rabbits always amaze me by jumping higher than I can imagine when they want to. You will save money by just going for the better one to start with, than starting with the cheap then having to buy the other, because you have some jumping buns.

That first pen is going to be WAY too small - it's made for little bitty creatures like guinea pigs. Totally inadequate.

You are better off saving your money and getting the larger pen in a taller size.

Buy the pen on Amazon.com.
There are affordable on the website.

If you have no credit card or credit (i have neither, lol), but an Amazon.com giftcard at CVS.

 

 

... Or just buy a dog kennel. I had a 6' zinc one at my old house.

Have you tried just making a pen out of NIC cubes? It might be cheaper and you can control how high and wide it will be.

NIC actually stands for Neat Idea Cubes - I am not at all sure what or if they would be called in Norway or if they even sell them there. They are grids that you can build things out of - I'll see if I can find a link to show you what they are.

We actually bought that first pen when we got our little guy (he probably weighed about 2 lbs. at the time) and he jumped over it within the first 5 minutes so I would not suggest that one for sure -- even temporarily. It was totally pointless and we barely use it except to herd them into an area if need be. That's all it is good for.
