        I have a 4 month old female bunny that is free roamed in my room. The problem is, she wakes me up around 4AM every day by jumping on my bed and I don’t know what to do. She has plenty of hay, and water so I’m unsure why she does this.

          This time of year (if you’re in the Northern hemisohere), dawn occurs around 3-4. Your bun probably considers 4 am morning and high time for mom to get out of bed.

          I’d try very dark curtains, like blackout curtains, if you can’t put her in another room where her activities can’t bother any humans. I currently banish my two young buns to my predator-proofed veranda around 4 am every morning.

          I also don’t let them have cardboard boxes during the night. Cardboard chewing is very noisy. I give them apple twigs and willow twigs that they can chew, plus some fresh pesticide-free grass so they have some nice things to do. It’s admittedly very annoying when a bun jumps on your head/chews your hair when you’re trying to get some much-needed sleep.

            I agree with Bam! Rabbits are “crepuscular” by nature, meaning they are most active at dawn and dusk. When I had to share a room with my buns I swapped out their toys for “quiet toys” for overngiht  (such as grass or paper mats and twigs, baskets, etc) and gave them the louder toys (cardboard boxes, palm plates) during the day when I was at work.

            Perhaps confining her to a pen overnight would help you sleep?
