After looking around on the internet, and C & C rabbit cages, I came across this cage for a FLEMISH GIANT https://www.binkybunny.com/Portals/0/activeforums_Attach/DSCN4163.jpg I about died when I saw this. I really hope this poor bun gets lots of floor time. It makes me sad to see a 15+ lb rabbit in a cage designed for (at most) a Holland Lop. What are your opinions?

I don't know anything about bunnies, but that photo made me think of a person imprisoned in a tiny prison cell.

Exactly, it's tiny, it has wire floor, and Flemish Giants can easily exceed 15+ pounds.

Our rabbit (which we think is a rex...could be mini since he hasn't been weighed yet) has a pretty small cage, but he has constant access to his larger playpen.

I think it's hard to tell from that picture if the rabbit has free range of the house most of the time and that's just where he goes to eat/drink. That being said, it definitely is a bit crowded in there even for that purpose. I know several people who have bunny proofed their house and just let them roam around where they please and then have a small cage for them to go into if they need to feel safe.


ETA: I did just notice the wire floor as well, which shouldn't be there.

I hope it is only for that. Hopefully (s)he is in a bigger cage now.

It looks clean and well-cared for to me. In a rabbit cage, keeping something that clean doesn't strike me as being easy. It looks like that is just a "sometimes" cage and that the rabbit has the run of a larger area.

I thought of that to, but it may have just been cleaned.

Even so, months of use gives cages wear and tear. Even when freshly cleaned they can still look pretty gross if they have a large animal living in a small space.

This is why judging somebody by one photo is not a good idea. It looks like that rabbit is happy, healthy, and well-cared for. Why condemn the person who owns it?

I had to do a major search to find the thread your talking about.

Here are some facts:

This was posted almost a year ago. The owner states this:


I just got my Flemish Giant almost a month ago, she has grown a lot in that time. I have plans to move her from the large rabbit (Petsmart) cage she is in now to a C&C Cage. Im thinking 3x6 is a good size with a 2x3 loft on one side (Pet steps will be made, she doesn't like ramps but loves her little loft she has now lolhttps://www.binkybunny.com/DesktopModules/ActiveForums/themes/BB_Theme/emoticons/smile.gif) with coroplast and fleece liners for comfort (thankfully she is littler box trained.) I was wondering if this is good and If I need to know anything else before I begin buying the supplies. Advice would be soooo helpful for a first time bunny mommy!

She later posts this photo:

I don't know if this is her cage now, but I do know that the owner realized that it was a bad cage. So before we all go on a man hunt and talk about how bad they are, do your research.

I wasn't judging anyone. I simple said, I do hope that the rabbit gets load of free run time. I guess I can't express my opinion on this site so I might as well just delete this.

That is great! I'm very glad to see this as I was hoping that was the result.
