    Last night Jake absolutely amazed me by jumping over the barrier between the rabbits and the rest of the house. It's a wire gate that I made, it's about 3 and a half feet in height and he just leaped straight over it, no climbing, no touching, just a clean leap right over the top. I was astounded, I was also a little worried he may hurt his feet jumping over something so high but as soon as he landed he was away binkying around our living room.

    anyway, I eventually caught him and put him back. I was worried he'd jump over again during the night but when I went to feed them this morning he was sitting on his favourite step as usual.

    I'm secretly proud of him for doing it though, it was such a graceful jump ;)

    My rabbit when he used to live in my room, could jump onto my bed, my beds higher than a standard bed, kinda like a low cabin bed must be 2 1/3- 3 foot x

    When Sugar was a young rabbit he used to cat spring really high about 3 feet into the air. One of my rabbits jumped up about 4 foot high and kicked my mum in the stomach (this rabbit only liked me! :)) my mum was winded for a while and never went near the rabbit after that!

    It's amazing isn't it?

    I was extra surprised by his jump last night becuse he wasn't jumping on to something but up and over, which must be loads scarier for him.

    The only time I have seen a rabbit jump that high was when I was feeding Saffy and Jet suddenly leapt 3.5-4 ft in the air and landed (not so gracefully) in Saffy's top floor of the cage...but then male instinct drove that one lol! xx

    Miffy would clean jump over the back of the sofa and onto a seat or miss a seat and hit the floor again, she loves being indoors.
