I have a question:

Why do both my bunnies love wedging themselves into the tightest spots??

they have the same size cage, which is set up the same.  There is a gap of about 10cm between the front on the edge of their litter trays, and they love wedging themsleves right in. (This may not sound so small, but my buns are quite big)  There is plenty of room in the rest of the cage and goodness knows how much in the lounge, but they go there and wedge themselves in.

Why do they do this? My hubby thinks its because they do this in the warren?????

I'd tend to agree with hubby.  Rabbits live underground in tunnels in the wild, and are probably instinctively drawn to tight spaces.  The other thing that amazes me about them is how a group of rabbits will lay on top of each other, often with one of them on the bottom covered by the others.  Babies love to do this, and my trio will sometimes lay like this, with the tiny dwarf buried under the other two.  They must live like this in the warren

Buns feel most secure either when they are all squished in a tiny space so they can't be found or up high and out in the open so they can see what is going on.

Noble sometimes sleeps in an upside down box with 2 holes cut at the ends. He has free roam of the house, but prefers this at times. My daughter's bunny, Bobby, likes to hide on the dining room chairs underneath the table.

I love that picture. It's hilarious!  I couldn't find her at first, and then I spotted her cute fuzzy face. Adorable.

Haha yes I could barely see her. My buns love my parents house because they are pack rats and there's tons of junk everywhere for them to play around in---so consider your bun in paradise!

Sophie loves to wedge between me and the couch when we are snuggled up. I think it makes them feel protected and safe.
