    I wouldn't pay that much for it. It's only got chicken wire for the run which is really cheap and easily torn by predators. But, if they are made to order, you might be able to change that.

    wow, that is a lot of money to not even have hardware cloth. Cute, but if it were me I would not do it.

    I hear ya! Have you tried looking for rabbit hutches? You could wrap the legs in hardware cloth, maybe add a couple wheels. Some of them already have little doors, ramps, and runs under the house level.
