Just hope no one buys it and makes 3 poor bunnies live here :S

That's awful. It's smaller than the indoor hutch that 2 of our guineas have!

Our rabbit has the main bathroom for his litter tray, food/water on the landing and in the kitchen, the run of the house and we have a fully enclosed garden he can go into when we are in.

Only have 2 feeding stations because, while he's happy to climb the stairs he won't go down! He was a rescue bunny and apparently he was thrown down more than once sad. He often sleeps on the end of dd1's bed - he luffs her the most, though when I'm in alone he follows me about and sits under my chair!

Sorry, I'm going on but I love my lovely bunny (who came to us with the glorious name of Speedie MacReadie!). Hard to believe someone would subject rabbits to this accommodation, shouldn't be allowed!

I know! I have one of those in their bedroom as a snug hidey area, for my two little preciouses. But can you imagine being stuck in there all the time, poor little things

I was in The Range the other day and yes they do sell small animal cages but there's a notice at the side about the space a bunny should have :
enough to stand upright and not touch their ears
enough foe several hops which can vary between sizes/types of rabbit
enough room to stretch out/ turn round
and this has to be in their living area and sleeping area.

I was very impressed.
They also had a website address for RSPCA.
Hopefully it would make people think first.

That cage (I can't see any measurements) but it looks farcically small.

Like the people who sell two adult male guinea with a "huge" cage, which is IRL a metre long.
They'll be eating each others eyeball before long sad
angry

PLEASE READ THIS POST IF ANTONE EVER THINKS OF BUYING AN INDOOR CAGE. I have one the same as that it came with a indoor rabbit that I rehomed. She only used it for somewhere to sleep and eat but had the run of the kitchen. When we had her we shut her in there at night for the first week as she was in the living room and we didn't know if she would chew the furniture then we opened the door BUT on one of the times she went in and out she caught her leg on the metal step and broke it. Luckily it mended with the help from our brilliant vet. We use the base for the indoor rabbit but never put the top on. The rabbit has the run of the house and the garden. THIS SIZE SHOULD BE BANNED AS A RABBIT CAGE EVEN IF FOR ONE RABBIT.

shock I'd use that only as an observation pen after vet visit or an emergency temporary indoor hutch. No way on earth is that big enough.

I've seen a bigger version used for dwarf rabbits but only for them to sleep in. It was also two rabbits not three. That's crazy. It should be banned as the bunnies would be restricted when trying to stand up.
