Bunny never left the carpeted area of the house

I have decided to swap the guinea pigs and the bunnies accommodation for several reasons...

The guinea pigs were not using the outdoor space much at all, partly due to the bad weather, but also due to the fact that they like to be indoors. The outdoor enclosure setup was great for them and it has worked well in the past - for instance when they just had their hutch in the enclosure and no shed, but since living in the shed all Winter, they have really adapted to being inside and do not spend very much of their time outdoors. Especially as the bedding is almost always damp, I was limited to when I could actually let them go into the enclosure.

The bunnies didn't have a large enough outdoor area, and it seemed logical to swap with the guinea pigs as they had a spacious aviary, which the bunnies had already been inside, and they adore the stimulation provided in here including things to climb on, space to run, lots of places to explore etc.

The bunnies can spend the whole year in the aviary, however the guinea pigs are only able to use this during the warmer months (and only on warm days which is not very frequent in the uk).

I am able to fully weather proof the smaller outdoor area which the guinea pigs now live as I can easily attach a roof, so they can go out here throughout many months of the year.

The space inside the playhouse is the same as what the guinea pigs had in their previous shed - it is only outdoor space that is being reduced (and they didn't use it much anyway).

A great benefit is that the guinea pigs are able to graze on the grass easily as their outdoor run is directly next to the lawn, so on warmer days a large playpen can be put on the grass for them.

I feel as though the bunnies require much more space, so a larger setup will fulfil all their needs.

Although we made the whole playhouse bunny suitable, particularly the stairs, Piper did not go upstairs much at all compared to when we first got them, and I think that the outdoor space is more important. The upstairs on the bunny playhouse can now be used for storing substrates and other items.

Some of you may not like the changes, but I believe the choice I made will really benefit both the guinea pigs and the bunnies, so I really hope you will understand!

These impulse rabbit disasters could be prevented if knowledge about rabbit care was as widely known in the public as say, dog or cat care. Most dog owners know what to feed their dog and how to care for him. Sadly, I would say that more than half of pet rabbits do not have owners who are quite so educated, even about basics. Most rabbit owners I meet still feed their bunny only pellets. Most still house their pet in a backyard hutches, exposed to the elements and predators.
