I have a lop eared rabbit and every time I change his litter he kicks it out. He'll kick some out then more then more and then there's virtually no litter left in his box. He's done with the Care Fresh litter as well as the Yestedays News. Anyone have any suggestions about what to do to keep his litter box full?
I think it is still okay to ask questions about bunnies on here...I don't know for sure, but I am assuming it is since Minniyar asked about them on here before. I had a rabbit before and I can honestly say that I'm not that fond of them...but that is only my opinion. I'm sorry I can't help any further but I don't know much about them or the litter...I never had a problem with the bunny I had and litter box training him. But you should be okay asking about the rabbit on this board...don't let New_2_dogs scare you off.
We had rabbits and they did kick the litter out. Constantly. The only thing we did was keep vacuming it up. We finally gave them away to someone who was better able to take care of them. BTW this is a legitimate pet question, of course you can ask. Don't think twice about it.
I've had rabbits before, and they did the same thing...as did my guinea pig who ran laps around his box at 5 every morning, and in the process made a huge mess in my room. The first thing I tried was making a large wooden platform to place underneath the box..the sides weren't that high, but it didn't matter because there was about two feet of platform from any side of the box. This worked, but it was really big and took up a lot of room, so eventually I bought a large wire cage that had very high plastic sides on the bottom...occasionally some litter would creep out, but for the most part it worked well. Also, in my experience as rabbits get older they run and jump less and less litter is kicked out.
Thanks for your advice. This rabbit's in a large cage. I have another one in a different cage, but they don't get alone. My first rabbit is sweet and doesn't do any of that. The second rabbit is older and I got him at the pet store. He was dropped off because someone didn't want him after they adopted him. I felt bad because he was just left there so I took him home. He was pretty skiddish about being picked up and I figured he's get more comfortable but I've had him a while now and he is still crazy. This litter thing has just gotten worse and worse. I don't want to give him up and send him to yet another home. Please help!
I had my rabbit in the house. and he did the same thing so I switched to shavings and he stoped. themn my othe bunny was in the house and he ddod it constantly so I kept some poo and put it back i and he stoped. mom thoughet I went crazy but it worked. good luck Virginia
