      Help, my little bunny Yuumi has been behaving strangely all of a sudden.

      My husband and I went from having at least one person at home with her at all times to both of us working, I’m not sure if this is the cause of her recent behaviour change. She also just turned 4 months old.

      She was very good at using her litter box until 3 days ago, she is now constantly pooping on my bed. I’m talking a lot of poo in a span of 30 seconds. She has also taken to peeing on the bed when I am laying in bed, she would do it beside me or near me. My mattress is currently on the floor because my bed frame doesn’t arrive until august.

      she is a free roam bunny and I hate locking her up at night but on top of the peeing, she has been pretty destructive chewing on everything and she will jump and run around the bed at 5am.

      any advice on how to deal with my hyper active little bunny? Is she going through puberty? Is it time to spay her? Is she simply mad that my husband and I haven’t been home lately?

      p.s : last time we saw her vet, the vet suggested to wait 6 months before spaying her

      I dont think this has anything to do with the changes in your work schedules Your girl has quite simply started puberty. Her age is right, her behaviour fits the picture.

      This is still perfectly normal, but it is,  admittedly, inconvenient. You may have to temporarily restrict her movements, f ex with a play pen. She will have a profound urge to pee- and poop mark, she can become highly territorial and grumpy, at times she may even act terrified for no apparent reason. It is -obviously – not behaviors that she chooses, this is all about raging hormones.

      Many vets wont spay until 5-6 months, simply because the girly parts are still so very tiny until then. It’s important that they remove every last bit of the ovarian tissue, and when the structures are super tiny, the risk of missing something is bigger.
