I have a simple question. I need a "fence" for for home-use, to put in safe my small pet (bunny) when I'm not at home. I would let him go free in his room but I want to protect him (and furnishings :P) so I am thinking to buy a small (plastic?) fences.

Plastic fences/pens are useless for rabbits. They'll chew right through them. What you need is a metal pet pen. You can get them at PetCo or most any pet store. Be sure to get one plenty tall enough as a determined rabbit can jump pretty high.

Yeah I did not figure out this before.. Is there a good online shop for buying this? I'm in Europe. Thanks btw for the answer! – Lc0rE Apr 5 '14 at 5:45
Sorry, I can't speak for Europe. But I don't think it's anything special. Any online pet store should have them. Here's a link for PetCo in the US to get an idea of what the product is: petco.com/product/13904/… – DA01 Apr 5 '14 at 5:47
Thanks I'll take a look around! – Lc0rE Apr 5 '14 at 5:48
you may want to consider a pen with a top or roof so predators cannot get into the pen and attack your bunny!!! – shirlock homes Apr 5 '14 at 11:38

Why not something like a baby play yard (also called baby fence or baby gate).

baby fence

Some of them are expandable and have adjustable footprints.
