First, you’ll need to decide whether your pet rabbit will live indoors or outside. While there are cages and hutches that can be placed in either environment, a cage is meant to house your small pet indoors, while hutches are made for outdoor living.
Most cages are made of plastic and wire, giving them plenty of cross-ventilation. These are ideal for small pets that live indoors, whether due to a colder climate or lack of outdoor space. Rabbit hutches, on the other hand, are primarily constructed of wood and metal wiring, which works to give your fluffy friend protection from the elements.
