My 10 year old decided he wanted a rabbit as his very own pet. He wanted a pet that would run around the house and be litter box trained, smallish in size and friendly. Most importantly, we wanted to 'rescue' one from a shelter. A couple of months ago we set out to find our new family member. The humane society did not disappoint. We all decided on a year old friendly mini rex whom we named Mr. Frank Bentley. (It was the name of the rabbit next to him, but we thought it was a cool name). After YouTubing nearly every video about rabbit care, I decided cage size mattered. They need room to roam. They deserve room to roam. I couldn't 'rescue' one and stick it in a tiny box for the rest of it's life, so I had to get creative. I ended up buying pet fencing and screwing it in around our garage work bench. I used a scrap of vinyl flooring to protect the floor under him and create a warmer substrate. So far it's working slick. By day we keep it open so he can hop around and get light from the nearby window. At night we are able to shut it tighter for a more secure feel. He comes inside the house for many hours a day and excitedly bunny hops around. Other than trying to eat my house plants, he behaves himself and uses his litter box for bathroom breaks.. Here are some pictures. Don't let the heat light fool you, it's only a 50W red bulb and takes the edge off the cool garage nights. You can't see it, but it's triple hung and rabbit secure. It provides a tiny bit of warmth while he's in his bed. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Good and bad. I also have many questions. How do I know if he's sick? Do I need to check for fleas, tick and lice? What are the most common rabbit illnesses? What could I improve? What do they like as snacks? I've heard carrots actually aren't that good for them. Just the tops. What else? What foods should we avoid? What do you wish you would have known before you got a rabbit? I'm planning on building an outdoor enclosure for summers. I'd love to see your rabbit hutches, unless they are tiny. That makes me so sad. Thanks!
