Learn about building a rabbit cage

Build A Rabbit Cage - It is a sad and unfortunate fact that many people see pet rabbits as little more than decorations. No matter how much they act as if they like their pets, they do not treat them in a way that is very humane. They will coop them up in small cages where they do not have the room to move around. As a result of this treatment, the rabbits will often get grumpy and unhappy. The owners will then respond by taking them out even less, causing a vicious circle that makes everyone unhappy.

This is why it can be so helpful to build your own rabbit cage. It is much easier to build a rabbit cage than you might think. Although commercially available rabbit cages do have some advantages, in general they are cruel and inhumane. They have metal bars on the bottom that hurt the rabbit’s feet, and they do not give the bunny enough room to move around.

If you build a rabbit cage, however, you can make it as big as you want. You can even build a rabbit hutch outside with plenty of room for the rabbit to run all over the yard. That way, you will be able to keep the rabbit safe and secure while giving it enough room to explore and exercise. Even though it is time consuming, it is also easy to build a rabbit cage. Building a rabbit cage only requires the most rudimentary tools. You need wooden boards, nails, and precious little else. Throw in a hinged door, some metal screen for the top, and you are set.

Although it is a good idea to build a rabbit cage for your bunny since it is more comfortable than the metal cages, you still may want to own a metal cage for some purposes. The metal cages are great for transporting the rabbit around, as well as for those rare circumstances where you have to put the bunny in the corner while you clean the house or mow the lawn. For other purposes, however, you are always guaranteed to give your bunny a nicer home when you build a rabbit cage than when you buy one. The rabbit will be happier, and therefore more friendly. And best of all, when you build a rabbit cage, you have the room to expand out and add other bunnies. This way, you can watch your rabbit population grow and grow.
