You want the best for your rabbits, that's why construction stability is so important for their large indoor cages. Rabbits move around a lot, and their movement can wiggle an unstable cage potentially causing it to fall or tip. When we look at the construction quality of a large indoor rabbit cage, we think about how much wiggling and vibrations it can withstand without failing. This is especially true in cages with multiple floors or levels where the rabbits will be above the floor of your home a good distance.
Whether you plan on keeping your rabbits in their cage full time, or will be allowing them to range through your home or a designated room, it's important that their cage provides plenty of room for normal daily activities. Small animal experts says rabbits should always have room in their cages for eating, drinking, lying and stretching, as well as occasional playing or romping around without looking cramped. This is important not only for their physical health, but their psychological health as well.
When we search for large indoor rabbit cages, we put a focus on the material that was used in the construction. For example, metal framing and screen will give the best long term use, but will look rather unsightly in some homes. Powder coated metal can be much more desirable, however. Wood is a stylish material choice, but rabbits are prone to chewing which can damage the wood framing. Veterinarian says it's important to know which species of tree, as well as which preservation chemicals were used in the lumber process in order to know whether or not it is safe for your bunny.
Large indoor rabbit cages can come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and overall styles. Some cages will be relatively simple, while others will have additional features which may be worth looking into when you want to give your bunny the best home possible. Some of the best additional features to look for are slide-out trays for easy cleaning, tilt out water bottle holders, large access doors, hinged lids, and more. You can even find cages with built-in toys such as large rabbit wheels, tunnels, or A-frame ladders for your rabbits to climb on.
