Thread: Cat flaps/bunny flaps?

  1. #1

    Default Cat flaps/bunny flaps?

    Hi all,

    Was wondering if people buy cat flaps for the hutches or somehow make their own?
    We are building a run today and want to let the buns have access whenever they want to it from their hutches.....any recommendations?

    I just cut a small hole in the shed, made a frame and a little door on hinges. It has bolts on it to keep it locked at night and a clip attached to the door to hold it open during the day in case the bunnies lock themselves out

    Bella and Jacob use a Cat flap to get in and out of the house. It was here when we moved in.

    Cut a hole in the shed
    Attach a hinge and a bolt to the piece of wood
    Attach the hinge and the hole of the bolt to the side of the shed

    It should work I have used it before, but on a hutch

    I have cat flaps in one accom, and ended up tying it up, so that it stays open, as they couldn't work out how to use it.
    So when setting up the second accom, we made a small door instead, which works much better.

    we cut a hole in the side of our shed and attached a bit of wood on a hinge which bolts shut at night.

    You can sort of see it in the photos attached:

    We tie ours open too, they do know how to use it but I hear it 'clatter' all thru the night when they go thru it - It drives me mad! [or did do!]

    Here are a couple of pictures modeled by foster buns. I did buy a cat flap but after looking at the instructions I chickened out and put in a door - my excuse is with foster buns coming and going, they find a door easier to learn to use
