Rabbits can be kept indoors, but it is important that you gradually get your rabbits used to common household sights, sounds and noises. All areas that the rabbits move around in should be fully rabbit-proofed to ensure that they are safe and protected from hazards. For example, all electric cables should be covered to stop your rabbits chewing on them and any house plants should either be safe for rabbits or kept out of the way. You should also make sure the flooring is non-slip as slippy floors can cause rabbits injury and stress. Your rabbits should also be kept away from radiators and their space should be kept well ventilated as overheating can be fatal to rabbits.
It’s also important that you provide plenty of enrichment and ideally, give your rabbits access to a secure area outside so that they can dig and graze on grass. If this isn’t possible the next best thing is to provide ‘dig-boxes’ filled with earth of child-safe sand and pots with growing grass in.
