       For my birthday on June 10th, what I wanted to do was build an addition onto the bunnies cage. I payed for the supplies, but my Dad helped me build it!

      Here is the overall picture. 

       

      This is the main part of the cage, I call it the “Cage Base”. On the cage base wee have the litter boxes (with a divider for my territorial bunnies) and water dishes. The wire shelving that we use as the side of the cage flips down for easy access. It is 1′ tall.

      This is “Mocha’s Hut”. It is 2’x2′  hut with a cushion for the king to rest his bum on, with of course his girlfriend Mrs Monkey for him to groom. It is made from NIC grids but before I just draped a towel across and that worked too.

       

      This is the Corner shelf. Its has carpet underneath the blankets as we ran out of linoleum. Here is Mocha flopped out next to the frozen water bottle. Continue reading and you will see more pictures of this handsome boy below!

      This is the ramp that leads into the cage. It is 4′ long and 10″ wide with a 4″ railing on it to avoid falling. I eventually want to cover the ramp with low pill carpet to help with traction.

      Here is “The Shelf”. Not a very impressive name, is it. Anyways, The shelf is 8.5′ long (unless you count all the way to the corner which would then be 10.5′ long) and 18.5″ wide. I am sure your all thinking what a random number 18.5″ is but the bunnies memory foam pads are 17″ wide and I wanted them to fit. By the way, their hocks have gotten a LOT better since last summer. They are no longer red and irritated! The edge of the shelf is actually a half of a log. We had a ton left from building our house and they were all untreated pine logs! Perfectly safe and beutiful! It is  5″ tall.

      So this is my bunnies new cage! I am in love with it and the bunnies seem to really enjoy it. It is very easy to clean and no bending necessary!

      Here is a video cage tour!

      Now for some pictures of Mocha flopped, below.

      This is totally brilliant! I wish my buns were bonded so that I could do something like this. =p How did you make the pad for your buns? What is it filled with?

      Thanks!

      What pad? You mean the cushion in the hut?

      I call it the bunny room. I’ll show you my bedroom.

      If you turn around you will see my mirror closet doors.

      Then…. TADA!

      When you walk up the stairs, you will see my room! It’s a little bare right now as I haven’t hung much on the walls yet. But I do have a hammock, so I think that makes up for it. 

      Other view.

      Here is most of my bunny decor. I am thinking of maybe getting some shelves to desplay these things down stairs in the bunny room. 

      I’m still trying to think of a way to have a ramp going up into this room, but I don’t think there is really a way to bunny proof up here withough making it look tacky.

      Happy belated birthday!

      Sarita: Thanks. ;p I love it. My uncle (who finished the inside of our house) though of the idea of an attic room! The only thing I don’t like is the ladder. It is pretty steep and slippery. I’ve fallen once down while holding my cat (he was fine) and I sprained my wrist and scratched up my whole back. It was not fun.

      I’m so jealous! I’ve always wanted an attic room! And in your cage tour video you show a pad that you sewed together. It had a Christmas pattern. =]

      Skipper: Yes I need to make a non Christmas one. I have one almost completely finished but I broke the sewing machine needle and haven’t replaced it. I really love to sew but I’m not the best.

      It’s all good I love Christmas. We still have some of decorations out (part laziness, part because we just love Christmas). But how’d you sew it??? Is there some sort of poly-fil in it?

      LPT: Thanks! I got the hammock for Christmas. It’s 9 feet long by 8 feet wide! When ever I’m stressed and go swing in it a bit, it really helps me calm down! The bunnies are good for that too!

      I saw that when I was looking for rabbit cages… I saw the price (compared to the $275 there cages) and I was like wow I should check it out! Then I saw that it was a toy and was like nevermind…
