Posted on by The Bunny Guy Many people keep their bunnies inside cages or x-pens while they are away at work or school during the day.
Others will keep their bunnies locked up at night when they are asleep to keep them from getting into unsupervised mischief. Some rabbit lovers say that they need three or four hours a day out of their containment, others say one or two.
Due to the lack of volunteers and the number of rabbits in the shelters, most shelter bunnies are lucky to get out of their cages once a day, much less for hours at a time.
When I go in to volunteer at the shelter I work at, I make sure that every single rabbit gets out for a while. Never for more than an hour, in order to get them all out that day.
So what happens when a rabbit does not get enough time out to play? That is a really good question and while I cannot give you the medical information about it, I can give you anecdotal info about what I have seen happen to rabbits who are kept cooped up for too long.
When a rabbit has had plenty of time to run and hop, they will be much more willing to go back to their house because they will be all pooped out from their running around. They may not enjoy going back to their abode, but at least most will not fight with you over it. This often occurs when earlier in their lives, they were locked in a cage and never got out.
They fear getting put back into their abodes because they worry that they will be locked inside again and forgotten. This is quite traumatic for bunnies and they sometimes never get over it. All they remember is that they were put into a house and left there for a long time.
When a rabbit does not have the fear that his playtime may be the last for a very long time, he does not worry about getting put back inside his abode. I have found that rabbits who fear being kept in cages do much better inside an x-pen environment.
For some reason, x-pens do not feel the same as a cage to a bunny who does not like them. Rabbits who were cage protective or fearful of being put into a cage, seem to get over it when they get to spend most of their time in an x-pen instead of being caged.
If you have a rabbit who hates his cage, you should seriously consider switching to an x-pen living style, instead.
Besides not wanting to go back to his cage, what are some other signals that your rabbit is not getting out enough? The one that I notice the most is cage protectiveness.
If you rabbit is attacking you when you reach into their cage, maybe they are not getting out of it enough. Not only female rabbits become cage protective, which is actually a persistent rabbit myth. Usually they are, but when male buns are kept locked up too long, they can also acquire that trait.
I find that younger rabbits, just like younger dogs and cats, need more play time.
One of the biggest drawbacks for a rabbit not getting enough playtime is the same as for a human who does not get enough exercise.Comprehension and Discussion Activities for the Movie RABBIT-PROOF FENCE This module has been designed to accompany the film Rabbit-Proof Fence ().
