    Default 'Mini Mee' Rabbit hutch on ebay. Could i report?

    Theres a rabbit hutch on ebay at the moment, its 2ft

    Ive messaged the woman saying it isnt suitable, and shes changed the description to 'temp accomodation'

    I don't think she's breaking any ebay rules so I don't think reporting it will do anything. At least she's changed the description, most people would probably either completely ignore you or tell you to off!

    Didnt report in the end I couldnt find a valid reason to report it

    Its unbelievable, some poor bun will end up living in there.

    It has bids too It'd be good for an aviary style run i guess, as a shelter. the doors could be removed and the bun might be able to get its bum in if its lucky

    I complained directly to the company selling this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sherwood-Delux...1%7C240%3A1318

    It measures 78cm by 78cm they replied and told me that they had spoken to the RSPCA and that there is no such thing as minimum hutch guidelines They are selling for 90 as well, the cheek!

    Its bad isnt it? People will buy the hutches though thats the thing. Before i knew about rescues etc i bought Lottie from a pet shop, and bought a hutch which i 'though' was good enough. It was lovely to look at, but it was only 4ft It cost us over 100 aswell. Then i discovered proper rabbit care, and had to smash the old hutch up

    People think buns are toys that the thing I hope it changes in the future

    That's just not true! The RSPCA always used to have national guidelines, the last I saw they had annoyingly taken the dimensions off but had stated that a rabbit should be able to take 3 hops and lie in any direction. A hamsterabbit may be able to do that in 78cm but any other rabbit wouldn't!

    I have seen recently people citing RSPCA size guidelines again though so maybe they have published some new ones. I hope so.
