    I think it's about being as cheap as possible to the customers rather than welfare needs. Can't see why it would cost so much when it's so small.

    I commented on the FB photo of 2 rabbits in there, wasn't rude, just said it's too small

    Thats more of a bed for your pets to sleep in not a pernamant living space! And with the price being that expensive you could get an igloo for £10 So cruel
    Probably the worst thing about being a penguin is after you’re in an argument you’ll try to waddle away angrily but still look adorably cute

    Because it's made to look nice in the garden and be easy to clean, ie aimed at the owner rather than pet. The Eglu is just the same

    I left a comment on one of the photos and posted on the profile to ask about the dimensions.
    I can't believe they thought you meant too big

    I can't believe they said the small one would be suitable for rabbits! I'm sure all the comments will be removed. If anyone is interested, their contact details from the advert in this trade mag are:

    That is terrible - the whole set-up including the pod is about the size of Sharik's litter tray!!!


    Having a pet is privilege that should not be abused, one day we might be the pets ourselves...

    have these been brought to the attention of the RWAF? I'm guessing the house/hutch bit is unlikely to be 4ft

    Hi, do u mean too big?
    *facepalm*

    the small size is perfect for 2 medium sized rabbits...

    Why do companies like this spend so much money designing things like this, but not do any research on what the animals actually need?

    I quite like the idea of the cat/dog base though, and if they weren't so extortionately priced would probably get one as a bed for Oscar and Jessie.
