My newly aquired rabbit has a 40"x 17" cage and I have been letting him pee in his cage. Is that ok as long as I am cleaning the corner where he pees every single day??

Well, I think that cage is way too small. I'm not sure you could fit a litter box in there could you? Maybe you could. You definitely want to get at a minimum for the cage size is 4 feet by 4 feet.

Ideally you want him to use a litter box and you need a cage roomy enough to fit that litter box in there.

I guess it depends on what his set up is like. If you just want to use the cage as a litter box, then that is okay as long as he has an exercise pen set up so his cage is basically just being used for doing his business. I agree with Sarita, that cage sounds small if that is where he is being contained.

I agree, the cage is too small for the primary space. What people have done in the past is combine a petstore cage with either an xpen or a pen made out of wire grids, or incorporated a cage into a homemade grid condo. That size cage would be good for a combination litterbox and hay feeder, but the bun needs more space to move around.
