Does your rabbit need a cage or can a rabbit just roam around your house?
Yes, they can, but you need to make sure any room they have access to at any time is rabbit-proofed. Rabbits adore chewing on many different things and this leaves many of your items as free game if you leave them to roam. In addition to being a sacrifice of your personal belongings, rabbits also might nibble on wires and get electrocuted. They might also eat poisonous items around your home if they-re left out and seem appealing.
If you find letting them run loose and rabbit proofing your house to be too much of a hassle, buying a cage can be very beneficial. You don-t need to buy a small, restricting cage if you wish them to have a lot of room to move. Some people buy large dog crates or even build their own large rabbit cages for their rabbits to have plenty of room to play, walk around, and stretch. Having a locked up place reserved just for your rabbit can be beneficial either way as well. Your rabbit can enjoy a nice, quiet place all to itself when you-re not around.
