    If it's a biggish bottle you can use the plastic fixings that you put pipes up with (not the huge drainpipes, but the smaller plastic ones). We got some from Wilkinsons.

    If you have a mesh panel (like an inner door) you can use the usual fixing that it comes with to mount the bottom of it and then use the stretchy wire things that you get for net curtains and hold it in place with it. If I use a water bottle in a shed, then this means the bottle can be mounted on the inside of the panel and you can close the door on it. If you haven't got any mesh, you can just add some eyelets to the wood and use them to put your hooks into.

    Like this... (on a puppy pen for bonding)

    The first question I've been able to help answer - yay!

    We used a water bottle cage intended for a bike. It fits a 600ml Caldex Classic Bunny bottle perfectly. Like this one:

    ETA I guess if you have more than two bunnies, you might need a couple, as it doesn't fit the 1.1l bottle.

    That's such a cool idea - *goes off to write that down*

    What a brilliant idea!
    See this is why RU is great, everyone really does have something to contribute

    You can not change the world by adopting an animal,but you can change the world for that animal.

    I put two hooks on either side, and used a bungee cord to secure it.

    Pets at home sell a Savic water bottle which is 1litre and you can just screw the fixing into wood. I bought two and used two fixings so it holds the bottle tight though.
