Decked out in pinewood and stainless steel and lit with LED spotlights, this young couple’s home is the ultimate in stylish luxury.
Each night the pair hit the hay safe in the knowledge that they have heating to keep them warm, automatic shutters to shield them from bad weather and security cameras to watch over them.
In fact, many humans wouldn’t mind the creature comforts that rabbits Hunnie and Runnie enjoy in their spacious £10,000 residence.>Enlarge
Pampered: Many humans wouldn't mind the creature comforts that rabbits Hunnie (pictured right) and Runnie enjoy in their spacious £10,000 residence
Pampered pets: Jason and Mairi Batterbee built a £10,000 hutch for their rabbits Hunnie and Runnie
Remote control: Jason Batterbee keeps a close eye on his prized pets with mobile-phone operated controls and infrared security cameras
The two-storey log cabin was built by electrician Jason Batterbee – who lives in the neighbouring bungalow with wife Mairi, 37.
Even when the couple are on holiday, they can check on their pets back in Dersingham, Norfolk, by viewing the camera feeds on a laptop and operating the hutch’s controls via mobile phone.
Each time they send a command, they receive an automatic text message to assure them it’s been carried out.
However, technology hasn’t yet come up with a solution for feeding time – which is taken over by friends when the couple go away.

Mr Batterbee, 41, said: ‘It took a lot of time and effort but if you think what people spend on their children this is nothing in comparison.
‘They could be considered the most pampered pets in the world but they are worth it.
‘The cameras even have an infra-red facility so we can check on them after dark.’
The custom-built hutch weighs a ton and is 7ft 6in wide and 4ft high.
It also boasts a ceiling fan to keep the rabbits cool on warm days beneath a roof covered with felt and shingle, and is connected to a 12 volt battery power supply.
