Make Cleaning Easy – Rabbit Cage with Pull Out Tray

If you want an easier way to keep your pet bunny’s habitat clean, then you can consider a rabbit cage with pull out tray. This type of cage is usually made with a wire floor, so your pet’s droppings and urine fall through, right into the pan underneath.

There are several advantages to this:

· Your rabbit won’t step on its own droppings.

· You can just pull out the pan and clean it for daily maintenance.

· You don’t have to take your rabbit out to clean the mess.

· You can use newspaper to line the pan so, during cleaning, you only need to roll up the paper into a ball and throw it away.

· You can take the pan outside for washing. Also, rabbit cage trays are generally easy to wash.

· You don’t have to do thorough cleaning as often as when you use a solid floor.

The thing about a wire floor is that it can be hard on your rabbit’s feet. It is best to provide them with something flat and solid to step on where they can rest their feet without having to always stand on the wires.

In comparison, a cage with a solid floor will not hurt your rabbit’s paws but it can be quite messy. You need to frequently take out your pet; sweep and scoop the droppings, beddings, and any other mess all the way to the corners; wipe wet patches; put in fresh bedding; and place the rabbit back in.

When choosing a rabbit cage with pull out tray, you need to consider several things, such as the size of the cage. There has to be enough room for your pet to play in and not be forced to be sedentary. You should also check the spacing of the wires, the ease of getting the pan in and out, the sturdiness, and safety hazards like sharp corners. If you travel, you may also consider the portability of the cage.

Amazon offers many options that you can select from, including the following three that we find best:
