Thanks so much. This was definitely helpful. I bet he is feeling insecure, the poor guy. Since I cut his space back today he has consistently been using his litter box, so I’m gradually going to open him up. We are still closely monitoring his eating and pooping, he was getting unlimited alfalfa pellets and his foster wasn’t familiar with rabbit dietary needs so he actually hadn’t eaten for almost a day after his neuter. We ended up doing critical care at home for a full day.

do you think that flooring could be an ongoing issue with peeing? I haven’t had the issue with other buns but I don’t know if they get confused…

I will post a photo. He is so handsome. He looks a little like a moose, especially with the haircut I gave him. It’s a work in progress but it’ll be easier to groom.

Glad it was helpful, and happy to hear the space limiting is improving his litter habits!

It sounds like the best thing for this bunny is going home with you! I suppose the flooring could be an ongoing issue in regards to peeing but I wouldn’t worry about that just yet. Both of my bunnies have no issues with peeing on different flooring but neither one is territorial either (I’m very lucky I know!) I would assume that once he becomes settled and more secure, flooring won’t really matter. Just keep doing what you’re doing, and give him more space gradually when he is consistent with his litter box after each new ‘space addition’

Can’t wait to see him!
