Good, better, best: Indoor rabbit cages for multiple pets

Our rabbits can serve as endless sources of entertainment with their cute floppy ears, wiggling noses, and bushy tails. On top of that, they have big personalities and need space to roam as well. Some pet rabbits spend their days outside, enjoying the warm sun, but many need to live indoors if the climate or location requires it. That’s okay. Your bunny will thrive in your house as long as he has his own. When choosing a rabbit home, consider one of these outstanding indoor rabbit cages.

Good: MidWest Wabbitat Rabbit Home

Try out the MidWest Wabbitat Rabbit Home for a newly adopted pet. Make sure to go for the larger size if you house more than one creature or you have an extra-big bunny. This hutch folds completely flat, making it ideal for storage or travel. Between the removable plastic pan and the urine guard, you won’t have trouble keeping your rabbit and his enclosure clean. He’ll thank you for making sure his feet stay out of the bathroom area. 

If you decide to house more than one animal, it should probably only be a mated pair or a mama with her babies since there’s no door to separate the cage into sections. Reviewers like this product especially for its ease of use and its durability.

Why we like it:

  • Good for rabbits or other small pets like guinea pigs
  • Doesn’t require any tools for quick setup
  • Two doors for easy handling
  • Removable parts encourage customization

Better: Aivituvin Rabbit Hutch

This cute combo house and cage makes for an excellent home for a bunny or two. Aivituvin Rabbit Hutch comes with a removable tray and an easy-to-open roof that makes for simple cleaning. Additionally, it can move around the house or between an indoor and outdoor space on wheels, which lock into place once you’ve found the right spot. This bunny house also includes a feeder and toy for you to indulge him immediately.

The best part is that it contains multiple openings and closures, which can help you access your rabbits or secure them inside — keeping them in and predators out. As owners point out, it looks good inside the home, so you don’t need to stress about having an unattractive cage in your living room.

Why we like it:

  • Cute attached house for extra room
  • Lots of doors and windows for display and ease of access
  • Spacious enough for two rabbits or guinea pigs
  • Predrilled holes make for easy assembly

Best: Petsfit Rabbit Hutch, Two-Story Wood Bunny Cage

Your bunnies will live in style with the Two-Story Petsfit Rabbit Hutch, which looks more like a mini rabbit mansion than a cage. Because it has multiple floors, bunnies can move up and down on the wood ramp (specifically designed to prevent sliding). This house is perfect for keeping two rabbits together because of the extra space and your ability to separate the top from the bottom.

Customers rave that it’s surprisingly easy to assemble and super simple to clean because of the multiple pull-out trays. The roof works quite well outdoors, but there’s no reason this adorable hutch needs to stay inside along with your pets. With multiple doors and windows, you choose how to access and display your animal. 

Why we like it:

  • Highly attractive, with spots for flowers or decorations
  • Sturdy materials and real wood with pet-safe paint
  • Works well with rabbits, chickens, and hedgehogs (though some pets won’t go up the stairs)
  • Many doors and windows to get in and out quickly

No matter what kind of rabbits (or other small pets) you have, they’ll love living it up in an extra-large indoor rabbit cage. Keep in mind that some rabbits won’t tolerate living with another pet, even if they were littermates. It’s important to get a cage that allows for separation if you aren’t sure your little beasts will get along or if they need some space from each other. Also, while all these cages can be taken outside, you need to watch out for predators, changes in temperature, and sunburns. Think of it as a reason to enjoy the outdoors with your bunny!

Gus, Copper, and Oliver-Clyde live busy lives at the Beck International Academy in Greenville, SC. When they aren’t playing in their enclosure the guinea pigs are hanging out with students at their desks or visiting other classrooms. In addition to spreading joy, middle school teacher Alexandra Jackson says that the guinea pigs have been an incredible source of growth and learning for her students.

Jackson acquired two of her school guinea pigs with help from The Pet Care Trust’s Pets in the Classroom grant program. These grants provide financial support to teachers for the adoption or purchase and maintenance of small animals in Pre-K through Grade 9 classes. Since its inception in 2010, the program has impacted more than 8.1 million students across the U.S. and Canada.

Disgusted by the idea of adopting a pet rat? 8 facts that could change your mind
Pet rat sits on little girl's shoulder

Not into the idea of a pet rat? Hear us out. While they might not be at the very top of your must-own list, rats can make fantastic pets for the right person. They have great personalities, learn quickly, and bond to humans. One day you think you would never let vermin in your house, and the next you find your place overflowing with rodent treats. If you're willing to put aside your preconceived notions for a minute, take a look through these eight reasons to adopt a cute rat into your home.

Are pet rats just like hamsters?
Well, not exactly, but they do have a lot in common. For starters, they both belong to the rodent family and share many traits, especially those big chompers. However, you will discover a few key differences. One thing that might surprise you is that rats are easier to train and can learn some pretty extensive tricks that might elude your hammie. 
How long will a rat live?
Like a hamster, a rat will live for about two to three years, but it really depends on how well you take care of the little critter. Of course, that's assuming you get a Norway rat, since there are lots of other kinds that are sometimes kept as pets.

Why is my hamster shaking? When pet parents should be worried
Here are the reasons why your hamster might be shaking and this is what you should do about it
Girl looks at her pet hamster

It's certainly a terrifying sight to find your hamster shaking. Just as it would sound the alarm if a human were shivering uncontrollably, so, too, should you leap into action with your pet. However, it can be tricky to nail down the exact cause, and a trip to the vet won't hurt if you don't spot an immediate explanation. While illness does lead to the shakes at times, you'll want to look into a few more of the mundane triggers first to rule that out. When you wonder, "Why is my hamster shaking?" look at these options to determine the issue.

Why is my hamster sitting still and shaking?
No one reason applies in every case, so you need to do a bit of detective work. We'll start with the most common reasons — which are also the least scary.
He's frightened
Lots of times when hamsters shake, it's from fear. Things that don't look (or smell) scary to you could set your hamster off with seemingly no notice. Try to perceive the world through the eyes of a small pet to figure out what's troubling him. For example, a dog or cat scent could send him into panic mode even as you struggle to perceive it. Those are his predators! Remove the offending object or beastie and see if he returns to normal.
He went into hibernation
If you can cross fear off the list, think next to the temperature of the room. In the wild, hamsters hibernate, and they'll immediately slip into that mode when it gets too chilly. You most likely don't want your hamster to go down for a long sleep, and it probably isn't safe for him to remain inactive. Maintain a consistent temperature in the room and include a thermometer in or right next to the cage. Select a good area of the house as well that doesn't have too many drafts and isn't too close to a radiator. If you do walk into a freezing room and find your little guy zoned out, return the temp to normal (slowly) to spark him out of his hibernation. There will almost certainly be some shaking during this process, but it's not a concern. Once he gets back to normal, it'll stop. If it doesn't, that means something else is going on. 
It's a medical condition
Hamsters get colds — sometimes lots of them. Examine his physical symptoms aside from the shaking to check for the sniffles. Seriously, he might sneeze and cough and get a runny nose just like you would. While hamster sniffles are a bit cute, the little guys can actually die from colds or other infections. Don't just check his sweet face, though; you also want to monitor his backside and spot diarrhea or other stomach problems quickly (especially wet tail, which kills hamsters in less than 48 hours). The shaking could stem from diabetes, nervous system disorders, or stroke. Pay close attention to all the symptoms as a whole to narrow it down.
