I want to be realistic in my expectations with these two new bunnies but I am getting frustrated and so is my husband. Mr. Rabbit really set the bar high and these two new ones do not measure up. I had them a month now, they were born in foster. Both un-spayed females (scheduled for next week, yay!!) I have two large raised litterboxes with their hay troughs in them. I only feed them in their litterboxes. They are the messiest rabbits!! Every morning and evening there are hundreds of poops scattered about or smooshed into my tile floor. There is always between 1 and 4 pee messes. I was using puppy pads for easy cleanup but I eliminated them because I felt it was encouraging them to mess outside the box. When I clean up after them I sprinkle the poops over the two litter boxes. The pee usually has to be wiped up. They are peeing in the boxes a little because when I clean them there are clumps of pee. I just feel like I am making no headway. I want to give them more freedom but I can't have them peeing all over my house. I always used raised litterboxes for Mr. Rabbit but I'm wondering if they won't work for these two. Maybe I should go back to just litter with hay on top? Will spaying them really make litterbox training that much easier?? I feel like I am putting so much faith into the idea that spaying them will make their behaviors so much better. I'm afraid I'm going to be sadly disappointed when life is still the same after surgery. These girls are all work and no fun... I would like to get to the point where I look forward to seeing them rather than sighing out of frustration every morning and night.
