my room is small, is it ok to keep my buns cage on a desk that is behind my computer monitor? or is it bad for his health for him to be within a foot or two of it?

Are you sure there's absolutely no way the cage can fall off if he shakes it? I'm not sure how big your bun is or how big your cage is but I know before we built our bunny condo ours buns would shake their cages something awful. Also, a desk doesn't sound very big -- are you sure your cage is big enough for the guy?? Maybe you could construct a small x-pen in a corner that he could run around and play in without causing too much trouble. Or even just bunny-proofing your room and letting him have free roam if possible?

thats the plan, to build him a cage with the wire cube things, but unfortunately that wont happen for a week or two, his cage he has now is big enough for him, hes only 10 weeks old, still tiny. im positive he wouldnt be able to move the cage or anything, i was more worried about wavers from my monitor or something :S

I'm pretty sure nothing like that can injure or harm him -- just make sure there's no cords he can reach! And if you're really worried maybe just turn your computer off whenever you're not using it? I use my laptop all the time around my buns and they're constantly hopping on the keyboard when they're running through and it's never bothered them... so I'm pretty sure you're safe.

Why would you want to keep it off the ground? How will he get in and out and it sounds like if you keep it on a desk it will be way too small.

I also think if you can find a place other than your room to keep the rabbit, it would be better. Rabbits can be noisy and sometimes you can have an allergic reaction to the hay.

If it's a temporary arrangement while you create a new habitat out of the nic cubes, then I would just suggest moving the cage to the floor, out of reach of all wires. It's more stable. You could put a piece of cardboard or acrylic on the side of the cage that might be in contact with wires and have it under the desk instead if it fits. I think it may be better to have the cage in a different part of your room, away from the computer. Where is the new habitat going to be? It may be a good idea to set the cage in that location so he can get used to being in that spot anyway.

I would just make sure that squares are not too big and your bun is able to escape through them.

Ditto. Make absolute sure your bunny can't get his head stuck in the holes.
