I cover my bunny's cage with a thin sheet when it's time for him to go to bed.  that keeps him from thumping; he gets less scared.  as well, it lets him know when it is time to get up!  sometimes he still tosses around his toys to make them jingle and clangs his dishes together.  usually i just feed him at six and then keep the sheet on the cage until i get up and let him run around...  he is quiet after he is fed in the am and the sheet is still on there.  i think most of all it helps him feel secure in the evenings.

KaliaBunny - That's a good idea.  I can relate to that early morning noise.  For awhile, my bunnies had me trained  -  "If we make noise at 6am, she'll actually get up that early to feed us"     

I started getting so tired, that I think I just slept through their noise - and a few times I actually just dreamed that I was feeding them.  How convenient!

Boo insists on fighting with the sofa. He digs and digs at it i have put a throw over it but now he just bites it out the way. I baught him some grass mats but he prefers to attack the sofa. I got him a clicker for training purposes but the noise is too loud and he gets startled i thought about using that evertime he dug at the couch but instead i just move him away he tries this 5 or 6 times then gives up. His little face is so funny when he is going at. ( the couch i mean)  He also has a habit of lying on my back whenever im lying watching tv and refusing to move so if its a long movie im stuck there with an over sized bladder and a bad case of dead limbs when he does decide to move. .

Lola thankfully doesn't have too many as of yet! However, I did notice she bit into my cell phone charger, so now everything gets put away! However, she doesnt bite much, so its not too bad yet. Her main annoying habit, is none of her fault actually - its annoys me when she drinks ot of her water bottle in the middle of the night, since the metal ball part makes so much noise when it is dead silent. See, me and Lola share my room, so if she decides to be wild at night, i get woke up! But thats not her fault of course, its just annoying Ill get used to it soon..

When my bunnies come out of their cages, when one of them thinks of it, they run down the hallway to check to see if we accidently left our bedroom and computer room doors open! They know they aren't allowed (at least w/o supervision).
We also had to move our favorite recliner into the computer room cuz they like to sneak under it and chew (Plus, its dangerous if you went to recline and you didn't know someone was under there...)
They are so smart that sometimes, one will keep a "look-out" while the other one attempts to nudge the computer room door open b/c sometimes it doesn't shut 100% of the way...
And yes they love to steal sips of drink, as you can see in the naughty bun gallery

Have you tried using a crock?  Or with her long hair would it get it too wet?

Oh, I have learned that a crock indeed is a good thing. For some reason, Lola loves water! She loves drinking out of cups/sausers. Every night before I go to bed, I come to her with a tiny cup of cold ice water and she sits and drinks the whole cup, and that means she drinks less out of the water bottle during the night. However, I leave the water bottle there during the night instead of a crock, because I notice that her bedding falls into the water and disintigrates, and I really don't want her drinking that kind of water. But her new annoying habit is WIRES. She will not chew anything else except for wires, so now I have to super-supervisor her! ( I swear, I turned around for like 10 seconds and BOOM- she ran to my charger and chomp chomp) *sigh*

of the two boys i have... Honeybun is the most ornery and the most ppl loving rabbit... they are basically housebroken but still leave poops everywhere as they move around... chewing on my doorjambs but i stopped that with phooey spray... chewing on wires... despite of me keeping them away...Poops... this one i am really going to be in a trouble ... Honeybun chewed on my cox cable remote control keypads.. half of the buttons are gone but still useable... man! them ppl won't be happy with the damage..

 

oh, when you're moving the couch or some other items, the bunnies just gotta see what youre doing and being in the way in the process.... Move!  Move your arse! Move bunbuns!   hehe .. oh yeah!  did i mentioned Poops?

What is Phooey Spray?   That's funny about the remote. We left one of our remotes on the floor and it seems those soft rubber buttons are irresistable.  

They are leaving territorial poos.  hmmm.  How long have they been doing this?

OMG, our cable remote has NO more buttons on it...There are so many buttons that we have to go by memory to know what button does what.

This is our second remote too, the first chewed one we replaces at Comcast free of charge, but I don't know if they'll keep replacing our remotes!

Its tough, cuz we do TRY to keep them outa their reach!

Well, I decide what Pepper's most annoying habit is. She loves to scare us. If she is out and someone tries to take a nap,
soon as she sees the persons eyes closed she will run over and jump on them. She also (being QUITE the bunny athelete) will come up over the BACK of the couch to hop on you so you do not see her coming. Yes, she does it on purpose!!! I thought the first couple times "Oh she just wanted to say hello and I should have been paying attention and it was my fault being startled" but nnnoooooo I am convinced now that she watches for when you are not paying attention and jumps on you from behind or from the front if your eyes are closed. LOL It is very funny too though!

Rappanui, our first bunny rescued from the pound, likes to growl. He growls! Whether it is to give him a treat or remove him from chewing on electrical wires, he growls. That is annoying because I am usually trying to groom him, feed him or protect him and he gives attitude. But, he is so very cute. I can't take it personally.

I'm still trying to train Pepper out of the finger-and-face nibbling.  She's got the idea about toes pretty quickly, but fingers and face seem a bit harder.  I yelp loudly when she's too hard, and when she got my lip I also pushed her head down like a dominant rabbit, but it's taking time.
