I know this has been around many times, but would you guys be able to send
me pics of the cages you have for your buns, or some advice as to how to
build a good cage? I've given up on trying to buy one here, as there is
nothing suitable in the shops and it is way to expensive to ship stuff from
the States.

Could you just get a baby gate and confine your bun to one rabbit-proof
room?  IMO, it easier than taking care of a cage.

I don't know if you have these "Neat Idea Cubes" in NZ or something
similar, but this is a link on how to make cages from them:

http://members.aol.com/bunrabtoo/neatcubs.html

Walter (sig.other) built Basil and Catnip a 2-story bunny condo, but the
instructions were in an old House Rabbit Journal article, and I can't
find it on-line. He used hardware cloth as the wire around the sides. It
has large boards, a kind that is covered with a plastic finish -- don't
know what it's called but it sure helps in wiping up wet stuff. There
were three of those use -- bottom floor, middle and on top. There are
wood supports in all 4 corners. There is another board used as the ramp
to the second floor. It is connected to the 2nd floor with a hinge. He
put slats across that board so the bunnies could get some traction. We
at first just covered it with fake sheepskin, but it kept wearing down
and getting slick. The whole cage is on wheels.

I know that is very general, but below are some links regarding
cages/housing. Hope you're able to find a good solution.

If work is so terrific, how come they have to pay you do to it?

That's a great idea, thanks, but I don't think it will work for me until
they are a little better behaved! Unless I cover the carpet, board up the
walls, remove all curtains, furniture etc :-) Hopefully one day that'll be
possible.

Thanks for your help, Rhonda. I'll explore those sites - I don't know if
they sell anything like those cubes here, I haven't seen them, but I'll have
a bit more of a look around some hardware stores. I'll see if I can get hold
of that article somehow too - that sounds like a neat house! I'm pretty sure
Poppy would eat that synthetic sheepskin, so slats sound like a good idea...
