      I recently adopted a bunny from a shelter. In his previous home he used a litter box, at the shelter he used a litter box, on the way home from the shelter given the distance we stayed over at my boyfriends house for two nights where he had free run of the guest room, he used the litter box and didn’t chew on anything. We are settling into life at my house where again he has full run of the guest room set up with only bunny stuff. In the past 24 hours we have destroyed an ottoman, chewed up two rugs and is peeing inside the litter box, but pooping outside it. At first I thought it was because it was a different litter box with different litter. I went out and bought another litter box and the same litter he had at the shelter, and he is still pooping outside the Litter box. My landlords are allowing me to have a rabbit if he is litter box trained and they have offered to check in on him during the day while I am at work, if this continues we are both homeless…..By the way he is extremely happy, binkying all over the house and doing his blissful bunny flop, so I know this isn’t stress related.

      Well, it seems he feels right at home already!! Those poops are him claiming his territory, are they all outside the box, are they in piles or just spread everywhere?

      Spread out but in one area of the room, right in front of his food and water dish.

      If you’ve only just got him home, it’s probably worth confining him to just part of a room while he gets used to it – full run of a room in one go might be confusing him.

      I wuold start him off in a small section with the litter tray, and if he uses it correctly in there, gradually expand the space.

      Chewing is to be expected unfortunately, it’s just a bunny thing. Try and make sure he has things he’s allowed to chew, like cardboard, twigs and wood.
