Yes seal the wood. Ill link a homedepot link, use pretty much any of the wood sealers. Ill show you what happens if you don't.Thanks for all the info!! Do you think I just need the vinyl flooring down until they’re litter trained, or would you suggest the water-proof floor covering over the wood anyway? (My bunnies do pretty well with their litter box now in their pen (but definitely have some urine spray around); but I’m hoping once they’re fixed (July 1st) they’ll be able to be completely litter trained )

This is my hutches drawer set up. Notice the darker and lighter wood especially on the inside of the drawers. Notice how the top is darker, and the hutch itself is even darker. The darker wood is sealed, where the lighter wood is not. Sealing the wood creates a dark hue, as the sealer coats the wood(different woods make different hues of color) and locks out moisture. It does wear off after awhile(some brands are better then others, and depending how many coats you use) as you can see lighter parts of my wood that needs to be resealed on the drawers since i didn't put enough layers. It should last 2-3 years before having to do it again if done right.
If not sealed it will turn out looking like this, you will see all the white amonia and other chemicals, which then will start smelling.
Always seal wood that gets wet. - Coming from someone who works in the movie industry.
