      Hi everyone!

      I have a 9-month-old bun and he has a blanket in his corner of the room beside my bed. He is free to roam but he will only go on the floor under my bed and loves to nap under there.  Other than that he never goes on the floor unless its under the bed. I’m really confused why as I want him to be free roam. I dont think the problem is with the floor but I think he’s scared or something…

      How long have you had him?

      My bunnies love to nap under my bed too. Maybe you can add some hides and tunnels around the room to encourage exploring other places? What type of flooring do you have? If it’s slippery adding some rugs should help too.

      I’ve had him for 4 months now. he has 1 hide out in his cage. I have hardwood flooring so I’ll try adding more rugs.

      I do think the flooring is a big factor. Rabbits do not have pads on their feet like dogs and cats do– they essentially are wearing furry socks all the time! That means any slippery flooring is going to be a bit hard to go on willingly, and also health-wise, it is hard to get adequate exercise when you’re slipping around too. I would definitely add more traction via rugs.
