    Default Attaching a water bottle to a shed...

    So we have a big water bottle (1.1L) for Benji. The trouble is, the water bottle only came with the thin white metal wire which is flimsy at best.

    We have a shed and would love to attach the water bottle to the wood. Hilariously, Pets At Home attach all of their big water bottles using a metal bracket which attach to the top and bottom of the bottle and are nailed into the wall - when I asked it turned out that they didn't sell them, and advised me to "try Google". Thanks, PAH.

    Any ideas?

    How about a metal plant pot holder, with some sort of plant pot you could put a hole in and place the bottle in that? x

    you can get these


    or you can make a bottle holder. We made one for ours out of a couple of bits of wood, some screws and bungee cords.


    I know some people also use bike bottle holders for the regular bottles.

    I think there are also some people on ebay who make bottle holders for sheds.

    This! Have you a specific reason for using a bottle rather than a bowl? In most cases rabbits will drink more if they have a bowl and therefore is a much healthier option.
