If you already decide to get yourself a Netherland dwarf rabbit, you might wonder if it's a good idea to keep you bunny in a cage inside your home. Since you'll be keeping the rabbit in a cage inside your house, separated from the outside world, you might think that it seem like a cruel thing to do to your bunny and can't decide whether to keep the bunny inside or outside of your house.

If you get yourself a bunny, it is more better to keep it inside your home. Even if it look like you're separating your bunny from the outside world, keeping your bunny inside your house is not a cruel thing to do. In fact, it is better to keep the rabbit inside for a couple of reasons :

The predator
Other animal outside of your house can be dangerous to your rabbit. Some of them might think of your rabbit as their prey. Your bunny can get hurt or even eaten by other animals if you left him outside of your home. Even if you're keeping them in a cage outside, other predator animals might be able to find a way to get into the cage to harm your rabbit.

The weather
Sometime the weather could be either too hot or to cold for your bunny to handle. Keeping your rabbit inside can save him or her from the extreme weather outside of your home. Keeping the bunny in cage inside can make them more comfortable during extreme weather.

Keeping your Netherland dwarf rabbit in a cage indoor is good for your bunny safety and comfort. However, don't forget to let your bunny out daily to play around more freely. Also, don't forget to supervise your rabbit if you let him out to make sure your bunny didn't go to far or get lost.
