Rabit cage? (2023)

How much space is enough for a rabbit?

One guideline to go by is at least 8 square feet of enclosure space combined with at least at least 24 square feet of exercise space, for 1-2 rabbits, in which the rabbit(s) can run and play at least 5 hours per day.

What Does a Rabbit Need in Their Cage? Provide 1-2 inches of high-quality paper-based bedding in their main enclosure. Other items needed are a litter box in the corner with paper-based products, a cardboard hide box, a hay rack, a water bottle, a small pellet dish, and toys.

Should a rabbit be in a cage all day?

Give Them Daily Roaming Time

To keep your rabbit happy and healthy, let it out of its cage at least once a day, giving it time to roam. Though at least one hour is necessary, aim closer to three or four. As a rule, never keep your rabbit cooped up for 24 hours at a time.

Is it cruel to keep a rabbit in a cage?

Generally speaking – No, keeping a rabbit in a cage is not cruel. But it depends on the cage. In fact, it is usually the opposite. It is cruel to leave our pet rabbit outdoors in an open space, unsupervised and at risk of being injured or attacked by predators.

Can a pet rabbits be left alone for 8 hours?

Rabbits can only be left alone for a maximum of 24 hours. If a rabbit doesn't eat for 24 hours it can die. 8-12 hours is more optimal, especially if they have a companion, space to exercise, and food to eat. Bunnies kept alone, or who crave more attention and care, will do best when left for 3-6 hours at most.

Is one room enough for a bunny?

I recommend the space be at least 24 square feet, but really any normal-sized room in your house will be good enough. Let the rabbit out for exercise, and stick around to supervise them so they don't get into any trouble. Sure, compared to the amount of space a dog needs, rabbits don't need that much.

Can rabbits live in small spaces?

Rabbits can live indoors or outdoors, but a hutch is not enough – they need lots of space and boredom busters to keep them busy and active. Rabbits are also very sociable, so it's essential that they live in neutered pairs or groups.

How much free roam do rabbits need?

Their bodies are built for speed, and they need to be active to stay healthy. Rabbits must have at least 3 hours every day to run around outside their cage. They need a minimum of 32 square feet of space to play in. It doesn't have to be outside as rabbits are quite happy running around inside the home.
