The cage you need could depend on your breed of rabbit. With some larger breeds, there is a possibility that you won’t be able to get an indoor hutch big enough.
They’re usually best for mini or medium breeds. If you have anything larger, a small outdoor hutch may be the best answer, and you should always limit the time they spend inside it.
The general rule of thumb is that your rabbit should be able to conduct three hops inside your cage. So, buying a cage which is at least four times their length is a must.
Having said this, you should always buy the largest cage possible. Ensure there will be space in your home, and that they will also have space to come out and exercise.
These can help with giving your bunny enough space if you are restricted with room yourself. However, always be aware that because they are ‘space-saving’, the amount of space on each level will be limited. It could also make navigation difficult, as the ramp may be steep or in the middle of the floor.
For this reason, always buy one which is purposely made for rabbits. One just for small animals may be far too small.
The majority of cages for indoor use are made from lightweight materials, as this makes them good for moving around and cleaning out. The most common materials are a plastic base with metal wiring and bars.
You can purchase an indoor rabbit hutch from around £40, but the more you spend, the more space you will likely have. Higher priced items may also offer more in the way of what you get with the cage, and you could have better quality materials and bars.
