    Hi all,

    We recently got a cute fluffy little lionhead rabbit but because of how fluffy she is litter gets dragged everywhere when she is done in the litter box! Our older lop with shorter hair just barely has this problem. Do you have any cool tricks or hacks on how I can keep it more contained? (she is a free ranging bunny)

    Maybe the solution is something simple, like the type of litter you use. Compressed paper pellets (e.g. Yesterday’s News) or wood stove pellets won’t stick to fluffy fur.

    Yes I agree, a different litter substrate will help. Wood pellet litter is great for that as It’s much heavier

    I use compressed paper pellets and my lionhead never gets them caught in his fur. Hay is another matter though

    I had the same issue with my floofy lionhead. I now use a thin layer of pellet litter (either wood or paper) and on top I put a sheet of plastic canvas (the kind made for cross-stitching). Craft stores sell soft ones and firm ones quite inexpensively. I got a firm one and used scissors to trim the corners so it fits the litterbox perfectly. No more trailed litter – just the odd piece of hay from the hay layer on top of the plastic canvas.
