    Default Indoor cages

    Anyone know where sells indoor cages that mean minimum requirements please? Not for me.
    I am doing various events throughout 2015 to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society.

    I am assuming it's for a Rabbit ?

    If so, what about a Dog Crate. I dont think any of the Indoor Rabbit Cages offer adequate space. At least with a Dog Crate additional levels could be added.

    What's the set-up? Monty free ranges the whole flat, so although his bog-standard P@H hutch doesn't technically meet the min. recs., it's spacious enough to accommodate what he needs it for - so if there's plenty of space outside the hutch, I would think a good sized one from any of the established retailers would be fine.

    I've looked into this when rehoming rabbits. Very difficult to find anything where a rabbit can hop along inside the cage. A dog crate doesn't allow for this, and possibly wouldn't pass a home visit requirements.

    A custom made 'pen' or a well made hutch of the required size?

    We bought two XL dog crates and attached them together. We also have a puppy pen attached. I couldn't find a cage big enough so we made our own.

    I know zooplus sell the plaza 160 which I think you can add to. I would use something as a base and have puppy panels though. MUCH cheaper and roomier. Also the 160 would not be suitable for them to be shut in (as I am sure you know).

    I would go down this route as a cheap, safe and practical solution. It would give around 8-10' x 3', plus there is plenty of height to put a substantial shelf / platform across the rear half of each crate, plus additional floor space with a set of puppy panels.

    I think this is the answer - but how attractive it could be I'm not sure?

    Mervinius, this must be massive for your two cuties?
