yes, a rabbit will stand the stress of cold weather much better than they handle the stress associated with extreme heat. Keeping your rabbit in the garage or shelter and the cage should be located near a fence or wall to break the wind. To protect your pet from wind and rain, install a back and sides to the cage. Throw a tarp over the cage during a severe storm. Provide your rabbits with shelter from the wind, extra hay and blanket inside their boxes for insulation and, most importantly, adequate water. Use water crocks during winter because water bottle tubes freeze quickly and provide nothing but frustration to your rabbit. Crocks need to be changed at least twice a day because they freeze solid within a short time. Water is essential. Even though you leave your rabbit outdoor, you need to care for your rabbit essential needs and play with them.
