        My bunny Max is three and a mini lop. He is on the heavier side and I believe he may be about 10 pounds. The point is that I’m trying to make a C&C cage for him that has enough space for him because I work during the day and I want him to be able to play and run in it. So I’m curious how big I should make it and your thoughts on whether or not it could/ should have multiple levels.

        Thanks for any input in advance

          Hi WildRose. I’m not an expert on how much room bunnies need, but I thought I’d share a pic of the cage we made for Timber. He’s about 1/3 the weight of your bun, though, so take that into account when you size your cage. It seems to me like this size would be adequate for a larger bunny. We went with extra levels to give him some interesting movement to do when we’re gone. He likes to sit on the upper level, since it is partially obscured by the towel ceiling.

          I think you can see from the pic, but this one is 4 grids wide by 2 grids deep. You may have to adjust the height depending on how big and jumpy your bunny is. The walls we have are all 3 high from the ground, except the doors are 2. Timber will jump over the height of one grid, but not two. Although it takes up a decent amount of floor space, I’m glad we didn’t make it any smaller.

                    Hi rabbotcolors13.
                    Thanks! We had a hard time finding the wire grids. We ended up ordering them on Amazon. For our setup we needed 2 packages at $32 a piece. Now that stores are putting out their back to school supplies it’s easier to find them locally. I recently saw the same set at Aldi for $20, I think.

                      Where you can get the grids from will depend on where you live. For a 10 pound rabbit I’d recommend at least a 2×5 grid condo with two levels. Bandit was 7 pounds and his was 2x5x3 with two complete levels. The bottom level was two grids high, and the top level only one, you’d probably need both levels 2 grids high for a 10 pounder though.

                      Here’s a pic

                        What does C&C stand for ?
                        What is their primary use?
                        School work? Why? Filing cabinets?
                        Never seen them before coming on here….

                          They are flexible shelves or storage bins. I don’t like them all that much for their intended purpose. For storage they aren’t very sturdy.

                            C&C = “Create & Collapse” then…??

                              I honestly don’t know what C&C stands for. I’ve also seen them called NIC. I don’t know what that means, either. I’ve seen them offered in stores for many years, but until I started looking at bunny stuff, I had never seen them referred to by these names.

                                C&C stands for cubes and coroplast. NIC is Neat Idea Cube which is just one of the brands.

                                They’re originally just household storage shelving units. Like the more modern solid cube shelf units like you find at Ikea, just with wire grids and customisable.

                                    Aha! Thanks, Azerane. I’m not using coroplast, so I guess I don’t have a C&C pen

                                      Just means I’ve been bunny obsessed for a very long time, haha.
