I built a rabbit hutch about a year ago that I hope would someday connect to a portion of the chicken run. However, I adopted two cats who are friendly with my chickens and leave them alone, but they do catch squirrels and rats. The rabbit would be safe from the cats, but a portion of the hutch as hardware cloth and the run is made of chain link fence with about a foot and a half of hardware cloth at the base. But I've heard that rabbits don't handle well to coming into contact with predators, and the rabbit my see the cats but would be out of reach and the hole in the hardware cloth are too small for the cats' paws to fit thru. Any ideas/suggestions? I would hate to keep the rabbit locked up in the hutch, but I don't want to put the rabbit at risk of getting too close to the cats. Thanks!
