Turning a shelving unit into a rabbit cage?

Shelving Unit

mystic_eye_cda asks:

I understand you can’t have solid walls due to ventilation but if it had a wire front and holes drilled in the wood for more air?

And of course ramps between levels?

Just looking for good ideas for a “cage” for three cottontails that spend *most* of their time in their cage. They get out for about two hours a day but with a toddler and a dog there is only so much out and about they can do safely.

great idea as long as they have some air! A ferret cage would be cool 2.

  1. All of the above answers have good comments and ideas, but something else to look out for is if the shelves have a wood treatment or paint because rabbits have a natural incling to chew on things, especially wood, and some paints and stains can be toxic to animals.

  2. maybe but be sure that they can get sunlight as well. I sometimes put my rabbit in the yard cage and all so size and mobility are important to me. When she is playing indoors I usually use a baby gate to barricade off a area for her to play.

  3. If you are going to use the shelving unit make sure you waterproof it…you don’t want any lingering oders from waste hanging around.
