Harry Houdini at it again

Post by gemma997 on Fri Oct 30, 2015 8:38 am

Have spent from June until early October making Soundwaves cage escape proof, every time I think I done it he proved to me I failed, eventually I done it.
Miranda had started it as well jumping on top of her cage then couldn't get back in so just took her pen away gave her free run off the downstairs bathroom, she's not a destructive rabbit so don't mind doing that.

And this morning I was filling up Mirandas food dish ( Soundwave gets done first) turned around and there he was balancing on top of his pen on all four paws looking like he was in the circus.
I give up he's won

I feel for you Gemma. I know for sure that rabbits have got a soft ware installed when it comes to counterfeit escaping space. Seriously they do.
Way back in time whilst attempting to bond a trio of Bertie, Bubbles and Vernon I felt I was planing and building Fort Knox only to find to. Be out mastered in a short space of time. My OH was taking the mickey too.
But it topped it when I came home from a busy shift in A&E to find Vernon bitten badly the water rein in a mess of fur and poo and wee and what else. As he managed to change the shape of a dog pen with a heavy wooden lid on to escape and have a rumble with Bertie. He lost the fight as he has got no front teeth ending with a vet visit at23.00  Baytrill and metacam and his own warren in the spare bedroom. And then ................

I went through this with Molly when she was little Laughing

Thankfully, as she got bigger she stopped being able to squeeze through where the pen and cage are attached.

I had to get a very heavy duty clip to keep the pen locked (it's off my OH's gym Laughing). I couldn't even open it in the beginning Laughing

The final piece of the puzzle for us was a mosquito net pegged over the pen. Without that I reckon she'd still be out every day!

Soundwave has 3 mountain climbing clips on either side of his cage a thick plastic net along the front bottom of the case to fill the gaps where his pen and cage meet.

Used the net with Miranda and she still managed to jump out ( still trying to work that one out scratch scratch scratch )

Flo's an expert escape artist but what I found is if I let her escape a few times when my back is turned and don't make a fuss she will eventually do it when I am watching. She goes over things, makes gaps and digs tunnels and is very repetitive with it. The 90cm high fences in the garden that protect the borders are no problem for her she can just pop over the top. She has jumped from the floor onto the dining table. She has worked out how to use grip holds to give her extra upwards motion. In the old house they had a 3ft high hutch with an extra fence panel on the top and she would use the bolt half way up the hutch as an extra springboard half way up to the top. And she has a sound grasp of physics using the motion of other objects she is using in her jump to give her extra power. I can't have anything against the garden fence or she uses it to get over the top. So she is chipped in case she strays.

But you know when she is up to something as she sits thoughtfully eyeing things up. Then after a couple of days of thought she either carries out the plan or decides it's not possible and !moves on to something else.

Nope but pretty sure my buns have seen it Hissy

Soundwave shows us how he does it after a while but Miranda is more cunning she just sits and looks cute until the door is closed

No I haven't seen it love but I agree with Gemma, I think some of your bunnies have LOL.  Holly is naughty in that she will scratch at things and my bedding looks like something from a dump site because of all the scratching and chewing but she doesn't try to get behind to the tv for instance.  The C tree will be out of harm's way too

Hugs
JO xx.
