      Hi, y’all! I have had my 6 month old bunny, Remy, for about a month and a half. I got her spayed about a month ago when I took her home for winter break (I am a college student). I brought her back to my home near campus last week. I’ve been letting her free-roam the house while I’m home, but constrain her to just my room while I’m gone for the sake of my wood furniture and cabinets. She has been doing great with litter training, with the exception of the bed, but only makes messes at very specific times. For example, yesterday I left my home for internship training, admittedly for a large portion of the day. When I got home, I noticed that she had peed under and on my bed while I was away. I thought that she was upset that I had been gone for the day, but last night she also jumped up on the bed and left poop pellets all around me. Is she doing this as a way to ask for attention? She has been jumping on the bed in the mornings for the past week wanting pets or to snuggle, but the bathroom behavior is new to the past 2 days. I also changed my sheets and mattress protector between the pee and poop incidents, so I don’t think they are related to smell. I’ve cleaned out and bunny proofed my large walk in closet to make her “room” in lieu of a crate or x pen. Her litter box, bed, toys, and food/water dishes are all in there. I figure I can house her in there while I am away or going to bed, i.e. not giving her attention. I’d like to eventually let her return to free roaming my room during the day. I play with her, pet her and sit on the floor with her often, so I’m not sure if this behavior is for attention or just regular litter training issues, as she is still young. Please let me know if y’all have had similar issues with your buns and what y’all think!

      Your bed smells very much like you so she’s pooping on it to mark it. As for peeing on it, bunnies like to pee on soft things. Best advice is to either block off your bed so bun can’t get on it or buy a cheap shower curtain and lay it over your bed while you’re gone.
