View Full Version : I made the playpen! *9 pics!*

I went to target and got the cubes to make it for only $11 (a lot better than $70 for a premade pen!) - and my dad got the ties for free from work. ^_^

I decided to make a roof instead of building it 2 blocks high - because that was really high! So now Benjamin can't jump out of it. And I had enough extra to make a shelf for my closet!

It was really nice out yesterday, so I took the pigs outside to try it out! Here's the pics:

We have those!! They work great, don't they. For pigs they do, but for Thelmer, she just jumps out :)

Those cubes are what Thelmer's cage is made out of but the does have a roof.

If you put the bunny in it make sure not to leave him in it to long since he can't stretch upwards. Also, they stand on there back legs to look for danger, so I would watch him for signs of stress or of him being bothered.
