Best Indoor Rabbit Cages for 2020

Sometimes, it just isn’t appropriate to keep your rabbit in an outdoor hutch.

Whether the weather is inclement, there is a risk of predators, or you don’t have enough space outside, keeping your bunny indoors can still give them a fulfilling and active life. You could even use it as a temporary answer if you want to take them on holiday or clean out their outside abode.

It is still important to remember that these are smaller than hutches and they need plenty of space though, so there is more to buy than just the cage.

We have compiled a list of the best indoor cages in which your rabbit can sleep and eat, complete with reviews and information on what else you need to do.

    Giving you the ability to bring your bunnies indoors while still leaving them with enough space to move around as they would in a conventional hutch, this cage has a removable base tray for simple cleaning, an access door for your animal to come and go as they please, and comes with the food and drink accessories you need to get started.

    It is suitable for two young rabbits or one adult rabbit and is lightweight so can be moved around if you ever need to restrict where they can go. Other users have also attached more cages to the setup as well as building a second storey, with Ferplast’s other cages.

    Ferplast Rabbit Cage KROLIK 160

    This is one of the larger cages, good if your bunny is on the bigger side and will occasionally need to be enclosed.

    There is a dedicated feeding station and a sleeping area, the latter of which can be separated from the rest of the unit with a slide-down door. The cage opens with a large door at the front, which is helpful for safely getting your bunny in and out.

    You get two feeders for hay, two drinking bottles, one bowl and one plastic house with the purchase, which is enough to get you started.

    Voltrega Parry Indoor Cage For Small Animals

    Suitable for a maximum of two small rabbits, this cage is simple so will need your own personal touch when it comes to the food, drink and sleeping area, but it is a good price for the quality.

    The clips are nice and secure, which is good as on a few of the other cages available, they are pretty flimsy and difficult to manage. The spaces between the bars are enough to give your rabbit a chance to look out and be seen, without risking an escape attempt.

    You get a little hay rack for the food, and there is plenty of bar space to fit the water bottles and other accessories.

    Handily, there are rollers on the feet, so you can move the cage around as required. Push it into the corner when your rabbit needs space to play, and then you could even roll it into the kitchen or conservatory when it is time for bed.

    The mesh doors are easy to open so you can grab your rabbit when needed, and the hay racks attach to the outside so they have even more room.

    Buying Guide

    Size

    The cage you need could depend on your breed of rabbit. With some larger breeds, there is a possibility that you won’t be able to get an indoor hutch big enough.

    They’re usually best for mini or medium breeds. If you have anything larger, a small outdoor hutch may be the best answer, and you should always limit the time they spend inside it.

    The general rule of thumb is that your rabbit should be able to conduct three hops inside your cage. So, buying a cage which is at least four times their length is a must.

    Having said this, you should always buy the largest cage possible. Ensure there will be space in your home, and that they will also have space to come out and exercise.

    Multi-Level Cages

    These can help with giving your bunny enough space if you are restricted with room yourself. However, always be aware that because they are ‘space-saving’, the amount of space on each level will be limited. It could also make navigation difficult, as the ramp may be steep or in the middle of the floor.

    For this reason, always buy one which is purposely made for rabbits. One just for small animals may be far too small.

    Material

    The majority of cages for indoor use are made from lightweight materials, as this makes them good for moving around and cleaning out. The most common materials are a plastic base with metal wiring and bars.

    Price

    You can purchase an indoor rabbit hutch from around £40, but the more you spend, the more space you will likely have. Higher priced items may also offer more in the way of what you get with the cage, and you could have better quality materials and bars.

    Other Buyers Ask...

    What Should I Use Indoor Cages For?

    Indoor cages for rabbits should only ever be used as a temporary stop for bedding, food and water and never as a rabbit’s permanent or long-term home.

    They should still have a play area or enclosed part or a room to run around in and come and go when they please. As you have seen, most indoor rabbit cages are quite small so they cannot be cooped up all day in them.

    You may want to just bring them in during the winter months or you may live in an area with a high cat or fox population so they need to be brought in at night. They are also good if your rabbit is ill and needs some care, or if they have just had a litter of bunnies.

    What Are The Alternatives To Indoor Cages?

    You can also keep your rabbit free-range if the room is secured and they have an enclosed space to stay in when there is nobody around to keep an eye on them. Buying a small playpen may be best, however, which will stop them escaping and can be personalised.

    You could also buy a dog crate if you have space, which is often much larger and indeed cheaper. Check for the depth of the base as this may not contain mess so your rabbit may need to be litter trained, and also check the spacing of the bars.

    If you are buying something large and open such as these, ensure you have hiding and sleeping spots for your rabbit, as well as dedicated eating and toilet areas. Giving them free rein also comes with challenges – rabbit-proof your home from protecting the wiring to ensuring there are no small spaces in which they can get stuck.
