Your rabbits will still need as much space indoors as they would outside. To achieve this, you’ll need to convert a minimum of one standard-sized room into their living quarters.
Things you’ll need to consider with indoor rabbits
- A baby gate or similar to keep them secure in the room but enable them to see what’s going on
- Unless the floor is carpet, you should consider rugs or plenty of ‘hop to’ areas, as slippery flooring can cause muscle wastage or back damage
- Your rabbits will need a room with natural sunlight and a steady, comfortable room temperature that will aid their natural twice-a-year moult
- All electrical wires or plastic water pipes will need protecting from being chewed
- All household plants will need to be removed
- Provide lots of toys and activities, like dig trays, litter trays and items for them to hop on to and run through
- Be prepared for chewing of furniture, faeces and urine stains on flooring.
