It can be difficult to completely litter box train a rabbit who hasn’t been spayed or neutered. The vacation and the changes it brought in location and housing, evidently has a lot to do with it, but her hormones are likely a cause of her new poor litter habits too. She may have been a late bloomer and is just now being affected by her hormones.

I don’t know what reliable sources would have informed you not to spay your bunny. The House Rabbit Society and most other well know sites about rabbits, do recommend spaying, due to possible behavioral problems, but mainly due to the fact that unspayed rabbits have a very high chance of getting uterine cancer. And if you ever plan to get another rabbit to bond with yours, you won’t be able to bond them unless both have been spayed or neutered.

There is always a risk when a rabbit goes under anesthesia, but it is a very minimal risk. You will find thread after thread here with members posting about having their rabbits spayed or neutered. You do need to make sure that you have a rabbit savvy vet, but you need to have one of those for general health concerns anyway.

Rabbits will thump. It is done when they sense danger, or to show disapproval, and a thump can also indicate excitement. Bunnies will sometimes do an excited thump when they are running around or doing binkies.
