Cool What do you think?

I have been really wanting to get a rabbit, but I also have cats and I am wondering if they could possibly fight through the bars of the cage? I would keep it in a large cage in my room and I was thinking that in the daytime I could give her/him full access to the room [only if litter trained] and keep the cats out and door shut. Then at night the cats could come in and the rabbit could sleep in the cage. Do you think that would work? If its not healthy for the rabbits or cats then I won't consider it any more...

Thanks

How do you do it? Do you keep the rabbit outdoors?

Most cats tend to tolerate rabbits well. They're large and tame enough that most won't "hunt" or attack them, though of course, you have to be quite careful while introducing them and supervise them when your bunny is out and about.

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.

My cat is actually scared of the rabbit My bun chases my cat, it's quite cute. My bun lives in the house, she has freedom of the lower level of the house while we are home. My cat is however used to having dogs around as well, so she's pretty tame around my bun. If you're scared of the first meetings with regards to your cat clawing your bun, you can buy "soft claws" they're little plastic nails that glue onto your cats nails so that when they scratch ect it doesn't hurt or do any damage to any of your stuff. You can buy them at any pet store. Good Luck!!!

Thank you! One of my cats [15] is declawed, back then nobody really knew how bad it was. Oscar is big and has claws so I will have to be easier with him. I just really don't want the cats to ever bite or scratch the rabbit because I know how dangerous that can be for the bunny.

Scout [declawed] would probably be scared!!

Illusion actually plays with the bunnies. Though he needs to be watched becasue Ive seen him get a little rough on Acacia. Introductions are key, when I moved back with mom I had to be very careful because Looshy had never seen a bunny before, was scared at first then came around thinking they were toys-(he has a lrage prey drive)- and now he knows not to be mean. He just chases them and Acacia chases him back when she's annoyed. He'll lie on the floor and put his paw to her and gently pat her head., its adorabubbles!! ^.^
Mama keeps away, I had Mama in my room when we found her with her kittens and Acacia and her fought a little.
Important is to introduce slowly.
