    Hi there,
    Unfortunately this cage is too small for Fudge. Rabbits require constant access to a large area - the RWAF recommend a minimum of 60 square ft. I found this video online, I think it demonstrates why rabbits need a lot of room better than I can explain it!
    Hopefully this link will give you some ideas as to some more suitable housing: https://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-h...abbit-housing/
    Fudge is very cute!

    I have to agree, far too small for a rabbit.

    Aww Fudge looks really cute cuddled up in the litter tray there. How much space is there outside the cage area and does Fudge have constant access to it?

    When I had two rabbits I fenced of an area in my bedroom for them with puppy panels and they had an area about 6 x 8 to run about in.

    Two levels are useful for space but do not allow for running around as the ramp takes up most of the downstairs area and the hole most of the upstairs one. If you have the cage permanently open with a run that would be better.

    A very nice cage - but I am afraid it is too small - it needs a run to be attached to it for it to be suitable. Rabbits need space to exercise 24 hours a day, not 5 hours (as stated in the RWAF guidelines on suitable housing and the 'a hutch is not enough' campaign.). There are some really good examples on here and perhaps they will give you some ideas.
