So... I'm preparing to get a rabbit. I have the food, hay, toys, treats, ordered (oxbow) and am in the hunt for the rabbit that best suits me (or I should say that I suit them...) anyway... I'm pretty much open to building/purchasing whatever type of material is needed to make a great bunny cage for when I'm not at home.
Is there anything you wished you;d have known when you first build your bunny cages? anything I for sure should stay away from that you thought was good at first? Anything that I should look for? I have looked at A LOT of pictures/posts on here about cages and I really like a lot of the things I have seen but your input would be much appreciated!
I started with a store bought cage from Petsmart, although my Monkey spends most of her time hoppign around in her pen. pretty muich just uses her cage as a naptime place, or an extra potty. I'd reccommend an X-pn, or the NIC cubes as well, as I can tell ya, a cage just ain't good enough for our Bunny Overlords.
LOL! KK, I forgot about that part too. How to move an NIC condo once it's put together and all zip-tied...hmm????
Ah you guys are great! I'm going to go with an NIC condo I think! I'm also hopefully going to see if my boyfriend will build a wooden platform for it that have wheels that I can lock in and out of place for moving in order to clean under it. I have to work on the actual levles, etc but at least I have it narrowed down some.
Any other thoughts?
I'm getting so excited!
My only tip is to get a large litter box with high sides right from the beginning. I can't tell you how many litterboxes I've had, always changing them to something more suitable.
