    Fox Proof Rabbit Hutches

    Foxes think rabbits are delicious which is bad news for rabbit owners. This means that rabbit hutches are extremely important. Caring for your rabbit means you have to feed him every day with food and water, keep his rabbit cage clean and also make sure he is safe from any foxes. The best way to protect your rabbit from foxes is to invest in a fox proof pet rabbit hutch.

     
    For rabbit hutches to be fox proof they should have a firmly attached roof, locking door bolts and have lots of hiding places such as tunnels so your rabbit can feel safe and secure. A rabbit cage that is equipped with a durable mesh and sturdy back and sides is best and it should be large enough that your rabbit can run around and play. 


    Protecting your rabbit from foxes by buying a fox proof rabbit hutch is not the only thing you can do. You need to make your pet’s life as fox free as you can. One extra thing you can do is to by scent markers from pet shops to mark out the boundary of your garden, foxes hardly ever cross over other fox’s territories so by marking your garden with a fox scent you should keep them at bay.  


    Sonic fox deterrents are also excellent at warding off foxes. These deterrents make a high pitched sound and are battery operated so you can put them anywhere in your garden.  Small flashing red lights like those you would use on a bike can also be used as a fox deterrent but they will only fool the foxes in the dark.
