      My first bunny Cookie has always had great litter box habits, even before being spayed. We got her a friend (who is also neutered) a few months ago. They’ve been bonded but the new bunny has had several accidents outside of the litter box. It’s mostly little poops throughout the house but I’ve tried everything and can’t get him to stop. Please help!

      Hi! I’ve had two rabbits – the first was already litter trained from birth and the other was given from a friend so we had to train her ourselves. I understand how frustrating it can be! Like yours, the second rabbit (Fleur) was introduced to my first rabbit (Alfie) and she had problems with pooping and peeing everywhere. It took time and sometimes when we thought she was better she went and had an accident somewhere. Every time she would wee where she shouldn’t I’d grab newspaper, try sopping up the pee as much as I could and put it in her litter tray. Then I’d clean the area well so that there was no trace that she ever went there. It was the same with poops too. Pick them up and put them where she suppose to go. I’m sure Cookie will eventually teach her good habits though even if it takes some time!

      I hope this helps!

      Pooping throughout someplace usually signifies territorial behavior. How did you go about bonding them and how long did it take? Do they ever have little tifs or do you ever see fur pulled out anywhere?

      Sometimes new couples mark a lot, but it usually gets better with time.

      If they have a lot of space, it might help to restrict it a bit for a little while to help him get more organized so to speak.

      If the area is huge, additional boxes might help too.

      That said, some buns will just leave single poops around no matter what!
