DIY Litterbox using IKEA Samla Box & Egg-Crates

 

 

I have created my first Egg-Crate Litterbox since March 2011, and my bunnies have been using it with various combination since then. While some bunny parents are concerned whether the Egg-Crates will cause harm to the bunny’s feet, especially sore hocks, my bunny do not face such issues all these years…

However, I would say that these Egg-Crate Litterbox may not be suitable for those heavy weight bunnies and those with very thin layer of fur padding at their feet…

This IKEA Samla Egg-Crater Litterbox is suitable for one mid size bunny or a pair of dwarf bunnies. As you can see from the second photo, both Notti & Bion can go in at the same time thou they are not really that small in size…

 

These are some of the old photos that I have created during Year 2011 when I first started:
