My bunny is unhoppy?

    When I got my fella, Che Radical, he was really well litterbox trained and could bop around the house and not make messes...

    I originally had him in my room, but moved him down to the livingroom so we could enjoy his company more. I also replaced his old litterbox with a new one that has a grate so he doesn't stand in his own potty.

    Well, I have pissed off the bunny.

    He not only has stopped peeing in his litterbox, but he manages to pee out the front instead. It's not male spraying, trust me, we went through that one already. And when it's his bop around the house time, he leaves messes everywhere for me to clean up.

    I know that I need to get him neutered, but I don't have the money for it as I am currently unemployed. The only bunny specialist in Denver that I would trust wants $200!

    Is there any way to make my bunny happy again?? He's not misbehaving otherwise...I just wished he was as stoked as I am about having him here.

    :lol: I love your title!!! :lol:

    Sorry, no advice... have you changed his litter or the stuff where his potty place is? Maybe it's the smell of the new stuff if so. Other than that, I can't think. My daughter had 2 bunnies once, cutest things ever, but they made a mess.... and I ended up cleaning up after them. I finally found a very bunny savvy lady that loved bunnies and hers had died, so she was more than thrilled to get them, and I was thrilled they got a good bunny savvy home. I think Mollie was a lot less stressed with not having to stare at them every day too. :p

    I did change his potty place! But I changed it back and he's still not pleased.

    I am so in love with Che that I will clean his pee off the floor every day if I have to- I would just rather not have to :)

    You my friend have territorial rabbit. XD When he leaves messes around the house, it is him telling everyone else that "this is where I live". I had a female rabbit that did the exact same thing. The move could of stressed him out, he may also just like being on his own in your room... so basically, stressed territorial rabbit. Getting him fixed should help but for now.. I would move him back upstairs and then let him settle down, once he's back to his usual self I would start bringing him down for short visits and then slowly make them longer.

    awww ok, my poor bunny is feelin insecure in his manhood? :(

    I hope he doesn't pee when back in my room! It's carpeted and that makes a mess a lot harder to clean up.

    Thats the unknown part of the mix, hopefully he'll remember the room as 'his' and you wont have that trouble. With the female that I had, I ended up building her a really big hutch outside with a heated/cooled 'den'. She loved it. We brought her inside when it got too cold and every time we let her back out, she was all over the place with bunny back flips of joy. lol.

    So just as I made my op, I moved Che to the corner of the livingroom instead of being by the front door...he's stopped peeing out the front of his cage and has now begun peeing in the back corner! Now, should I bother moving him back upstairs since he's started peeing in an okay place- or should I move his litterbox to where he's peeing now??

    Such a complex little fuzzball...

    lol! That figures. Ok, Myself, I would get him a second litter box for the corner that he's peeing in now. You could probably just make one out of an old box.

    that's smart, I'll do that.
    Thanks for the advice :)
