Is it bad to have a bunny in your room?
Yes a rabbit can live happily in a bedroom size area. I know several devoted rabbit parents that have bunnies living in bedrooms. If the room is carpeted they can get traction to run REALLY! A baby gate can be used to keep the bunny in the room while the bedroom door is open.
How do you make an indoor rabbit enclosure?
Fenced In: Use a playpen or garden fence elements (held together with zip ties) to build a safe home for your rabbit. It’s a great idea to put down vinyl or plastic and top it off with a rug, cork, or piece of carpet to keep your wood floor or regular carpet clean.
What is the minimum space for a rabbit?
The minimum requirement of space for your pet rabbit is 12 square feet (or 1.1 square meters). Rabbits need space to run around, hop, dig besides space for food and water.
Should I cover my rabbits cage at night?
Covering the cage can be the best way to ensure your rabbit can calm down at night. When there’s nothing better to do than sleep, they’ll find it easier to wind down. Just be sure to only cover it when they’re sleeping, and leave room for ventilation.
What do rabbits like in their cage?
Put some fun toys in the cage. Rabbits love to chew so provide some sturdy branches of orchard woods (apple, pear, plum, cherry) or you can purchase commercial rabbit chews from a pet store. When choosing toys, make sure they are rabbit-safe. A good toy is a cardboard box filled with shredded paper and dry hay.
Do rabbits get attached to their owners?
Rabbits bond closely with their owners. They recognize them by voice and sight and will even come on command. Bunnies may even follow their owners from room to room and jump up on their laps when called.
Do indoor rabbits smell?
But don’t rabbits smell bad? Rabbits themselves are very clean animals with odourless fur and they fastidiously groom themselves all day. Only their urine smells so as long as you keep their living area clean (spot clean every few days and a full clean-out once a week) you shouldn’t have a problem.
Do indoor rabbits need sunlight?
To stay healthy, a bunny needs to spend some time in the sun — or at least catch a few UV rays. But keeping a rabbit permanently indoors comes with its own problems. Windows block the type of ultraviolet light that triggers vitamin D production, and a rabbit’s diet doesn’t always provide enough of the nutrient.
What can I put in my indoor rabbit hutch?
Inside the hutch
- Lay two or three layers of newspaper evenly on the bottom, to hold in any hay or wood shavings.
- Spread straw or wood shavings throughout.
- Set up a comfy area for sleeping, with hay or soft, dust extracted straw.
What do rabbits sleep on?
Rabbits enjoy sleeping on soft and comfortable materials. Consider providing your bunnies with pillows and blankets. Some animals may require extra bedding cover during winter. However, avoid providing your rabbits with too many blankets and pillows because the bunnies can quickly overheat.
Is it cruel to keep a rabbit in a cage?
Locking your rabbit up Many cages sold by pet stores are far too small for even a young rabbit, let alone a grown one. Keeping them in these tiny cages can cause a range of health problems, including obesity and even deformities if they’re not able to move around naturally. It’s also cruel.
Can I let my rabbit run around the house?
A rabbit is considered to be free roam, or free range, when they have constant access to the house or apartment, even when their caretakers are away or sleeping. The pet rabbit is treated similar to the way we treat pet cats and dogs. They are allowed to roam around the house and rarely, if ever, kept in an enclosure.
