      Hi everyone,

      My Loki has been Neutered but I had a friend come over and had approached him gently but in his room, next day their was poop all over the room,

      then my partner had to work in their for a week, (usually works downstairs, bunny room has my computer in there and the main router) then he again would poop all around the chair he was sitting in.  Since then he will every once in a while poop all over the room or under his tunnel haven in the living room, (he sleeps there during the day).  Now I don’t know if he is just jumping out and leaving poop or if this is normal for a rabbit?  Just wondering if any could be territorial and how to beat it.    I moved his tunnel haven in the living room to see if that would help, rare for him to poop outside of his room.  He has the whole family area, kitchen and his room to free roam

      How long ago was Loki neutered? If it was fairly recently, this could be just a transient thing.

      Neutered rabbits can however poopmark, but it mostly occurs when there’s another rabbit nearby. I had two neutered rabbits that lived next to each other, separated by a gate that divided my apt. Both buns poopmarked alongside the gate, on their respective sides. They made one straight line of poops each, and when I removed them, they renewed this apparently very important barrier.

      Marking poop tend to be a bit bigger than “average” poop, and also shiny. They can smell quite distinctly of onions.

      If Loki’s pooping is territorial, it’s likely to subside once Loki realises that your partner is a friend.

      Thanks for the reply!  Loki was nurtured beginning of April, he was born Aug 15 2020, partner has always been here but you may be right he used to like him but now if he hears him he runs and hides.  No other bunnies. Would love another bunny, I have the space just don’t have anyone to help with the bonding.

      his poop does not seem bigger but will keep a closer eye on it!
