        I’m currently researching different products to bunny proof my bedroom but I am limited in the amount of money I can spend as a large chunk of my budget is going into purchasing an air purifier. This is a non-negotiable purchase as I have allergies and I need this if I’m going to have my buns with me in my bedroom.

        I currently have split tubing cord protectors and two plant stands on my list (I have some large plants that have to go on the floor but I’m going to raise them above bunny level).

        I know that there is a never ending list of things I could buy to bunny proof, but I also want to put money towards better enrichment, a better litter set up etc.

        I was wondering:

        1. Is there anything you highly recommend I buy for bunny proofing? (I have a carpeted bedroom)

        2. Would it be a better idea to just wait and observe my buns to see what they are interested in before making excessive purchases?

          I think waiting to see what needs to be bunny-proofed is a good idea! It helps to get on the floor level and supervise the bun closely at first to see what they are most interested in.

          Here are some of the things that have been essential for me:

          -Heavy ceramic tiles to block any “hot spots” where they dig or chew the carpet. My buns that loved to chew carpet loved cardboard cat scratchers as toys. Whenever you block an trouble spot, it helps to provide an alternative for them to chew instead.

          -NIC cube grids and cable ties. You can connect these together to make small panels to block access to any areas you want to keep the bun out of. Super useful for blocking cords under desks, area under the bed (my bridge bun used to try to burrow into my box spring), etc.

           

          Also side note… I’ve made some very inexpensive air filters by taping a home HVAC filter to a box fan. Not sure if it would work for you but they work great for me and was much cheaper than pre-made HEPA filter. I used this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH5APw_SLUU&ab_channel=MichiganMedicine
