I am thinking of fostering a rabbit (or two) from a local rescue. After Christmas most likely or even later.
I know I will need a cage, but what size? I was thinking a 2x3 because I can let the rabbit out to play most of the day, where as with the guinea pigs they aren't exactly litter box trainable or floor time trainable.
I know I will need food, water (obviuosly), and unlimited hay.
But does any one have any good links on how to care for a rabbit?
Basically any info about them. I want to be rabbit savy before I foster one.


Thanks in advance.

my rabbits are currently in a 2x3 cage and 1 high and its kinda too small. We are gonna make them a 2x5 and 2 high and they have room to stand and play.

Hi I'm new here, my name is waileng.

Sorry to hijack your thread but I'm in a opposite situation from you. I had always have rabbits and now are thinking of fostering some gp.

I know I will need a cage, but what size? I was thinking a 2x3 because I can let the rabbit out to play most of the day, where as with the guinea pigs they aren't exactly litter box trainable or floor time trainable
Maybe i have misread your post but which one of the two you mean are not litterbox and floor time trainable. I can assure you that rabbits are very intelligent animals and can be litter box trained. I was actually looking for some affirmation that gp are litter box trainable. My rabbits are great with litter box habits and hopefully i'll be able to achieve the same ease with the gps.

Actually, I think she was talking about her piggies, not the rabbits. Good luck with your fostering project! It's an admirable cause.

Piggies are funny when it comes to litterboxes. Some will some wont. The majority wont use them.
