I’m sorry about the loss of Gunnar.

You may have to somehow block off the sofa and the bed, to keep Tommy from going to the bathroom there. Or, some people put a shower curtain on their bed. Rabbits are not going to like the slippery surface and will likely get down, but if they do use the bathroom, it won’t soak in.

Is the female rabbit at the shelter spayed, or will they spay her if she is adopted? You shouldn’t try any bonding unless she is spayed. If they wait until you adopt her, or if you have to have her spayed yourself, then you will have to let 2 weeks or more elapse after surgery for her recuperation and for her hormones to level out before you can start the bonding process. You would have to keep them apart until then.  They could be in the same room, but with no physical contact.  It’s impossible to know if getting a new rabbit companion for Tommy will stop him from using the couch and bed as a bathroom. It’s rare, but there are some instances where rabbits just won’t bond – their personalities aren’t a match maybe. So, you always have to be prepared to house another rabbit separately if you can’t get a new one to bond with Tommy. It is generally easier to bond a male with a female – neutered and spayed, of course.
