Tim “The Rabbit & Tool Man” Taylor stikes again!

Rabbits in TLR are let loose on rotation for their daily runs. As of late, I have been really lazy to clean up after every run. Sometimes they tend to be a little cheeky and leave a lot of pee and poop for me to clean up. I finally stopped procrastinating and went ahead with what I love to do over the weekend – Rabbit DIY. This time I built an indoor Rabbit Run – limited apartment space. It is good to have a run so that I do not need to worry too much about pee and poop. Also, I do not need to worry about having my electrical cords chewed by these rascals.

I must mention that this design is inspired by Alicia of Pet Epicure and all those NIC panel peeps! Thank you!

Ingredients for a perfect rabbit run:

1) 3 big chloroplast board

2) 1 roll of cloth tape

3) 1 tube of clear sealant

4) Lotsa cable tie

5) Binding rings (I think so)

Step 1:

Lay all Chloroplast board side by side, tape them together, turn them around and apply sealant at joins.

Step 4:

Apply sealant where pee matters! Wait out to dry!

Apply sealant at the corner where the rascals love to point and shoot!

Place the big a** pan where you want the run to be.

That's a major pan with an attitude!

I am quite eager to take a photo with a bunny in it but I just have to wait out for the sealant to dry.

Step 7:

Secure sides with binding rings.

Just admit it, that has got to be one of the best DIY in a rabbit owner’s history right!? Please drop a comment to appreciate and don’t be shy to copy this – it’s dedicated to all the copy cats in the world (LOL!)!

There you have it, another great DIY project from TLR! Have a nice weekend and stop protesting!

P/S: Please pray for Truffles. He’s going for his castration tomorrow. New owners are awaiting for his safe return home next week! All bunnies paws together now!

    We LOVE YOU Truff!!!:D

    Bunny XOXO from us and Bugsy..:D

  2. Good job Timmy! Some suggestions: Add cardboard boxes to make tunnels. Rabbits like to tunnel and explore. Also leave a chew proof plastic ball (like a small hamster ball) for them to push around. The bucks will especially love humping on them. Great hip exercise. Last but not least, have some pvc pipe go across the path so rabbit has to jump hurdle to go from one end to the other. This helps to build stronger back. Last but not least, fill the pen up with 2~3 inches of pine wood shaving (never cedar), pack it down, so you don’t have to clean it after every use.
