Making a CN suitable for a rabbit, short term.
« on: April 04, 2014, 11:11:37 PM »
Tomorrow I'm taking in a stray rabbit. She's rather small but I know this is a shot term option for her, at least the cage is as I'm not sure how long I'll have her. Because it's so sudden I've moved my ratties back into their other cage, which is a bit smaller than I'd like for them also, and have set up my single level CN for the bun. Remember this is short term as I'll either be giving her back, finding her another home or if I keep her getting her a more suitable cage! What can I do to make the CN more suitable for her. Currently I have the level in and the ramp but am thinking of going ramp-less and maybe moving the level down a notch. She will have lots of out time for sure but I don't know if there is anything I can do in the mean time to make this the happiest bun cage it can be. She'll be on fleece/towel/furniture pad liners and has a litter box and some wood chews but I don't know if I can sew some additional items or what toys I could add. Any thoughts, other than that it's too small... I'm aware..are very much welcome.  :bow:

what kind/size of rabbit?   You'd be better off picking up a box of cube grids and building the rabbit a cage with those and pick up some scrap linoleum, or so chloroplast for the floor cover.

I absolutely don't have the space or money for a different cage at this time. I live in a 1 bedroom house, more like a glorified studio with 3 dogs, a cat and 4 rats. There is no place for a cage of that type or size nor would it be safe with my dogs. I had 2 pigs in a CC style cage with a top and my dogs killed them. I am not getting a different cage unless I am going to be keeping her, which is not the plan at this time and will cross that bridge when it comes. My question is in regards to doing the best I can with what I have now. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Oh and she's either a mini or holland lop, didn't have a chance to weigh her when she came into the clinic today but will when they bring her back to me tomorrow.

I had to make room for the single level CN for my ratties and that was pushing it. I have no idea what I'm going to do if she becomes permanent but at this time I am the best home she has available and she'll have the best care (I'm a vet tech), food and attention, she's just going to have to be in a smaller cage then I would prefer for her for now.  :-\
