    Default Hideaway ideas for indoor bunnies

    Iíve always gone with dog crates covered with a blanket as an indoor base before, mostly because I figured I could lie during any potential landlord visits and say itís a cage as opposed to a hiding area.

    Now Iím looking for alternative options and was wondering what other people use.

    Iíve been thinking about trying to DIY a small table into like a bunny activity centre on top, with a hidden space underneath. I donít really have a clear picture in my head of what I want though!

    I had the idea to box in the stool I've got but never got around to it, but it was a similar idea to the table and I don't see why it shouldn't work
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    A lot of people use the Ikea box - search for Ikea bunny hol. I’m sure anything similar would work too

    Ahhh that would be ideal, they donít seem to sell it in Canada though I might go to Ikea tomorrow though and see if I can find anything similar. Thanks!

    I'm excited for you SR that you'll be a bunny mom again.

    My bunnies love to sit under stuff -they don't have bunny specific stuff but for as long as I have house rabbits I will always give them something to sit under. I've had buns for over 25 years & all of them have gravitated towards snoozy zones that have cover.

    When s/he arriving?

    We bring him home on Saturday thank you, Iím so in love and canít wait to have him here!

    I think because we have only been in the country for a year and knew we would likely be leaving the city after our years lease was up, we literally moved to a new town last week, weíve kept furniture minimal and donít actually have anything for a bunny to sit under. Currently the room he will live in is empty except for a bookcase and a tiny plant

    I will sort something out though!

    When i did my most recent bond I didn't want tables in case I needed to access the buns so attached a cardboard "roof" coming off from the radiator & all my bunnies love to sit under it Please share some stories / photos when he arrives. Exciting times

    Yes I would go for cardboard boxes initially, and then just look for a small table in a charity shop or something when you’re out and about Look forward to hearing about him.

    I ended up buying some small tables, they were like $7 each. I thought about cardboard boxes but then I saw these and was like that will do if he shows signs of chewing I will completely wrap them in sisal.

    Anyways this is what Iíve ended up with, I hope he likes it! And I hope the pic works.
