    Hello again!
    I always have so many rabbit questions.
    Soooo, due to recent bed peeing habits i decided to move my bunnies xpen into another room to give him more space and keep my bed from being soiled all the time.
    Now that I've moved him he has lost all litter habbits! He isn't peeing just anywhere though, only directly infront of his litter box! Which as you know is very annoying lol. I have pee mats all over his pen now to help with containment, and i have tried even moving his litter box over the area he was peeing thinking he would like it better. Now he just pees in front of it in the new spot.

    I read this is probably because he moved room, but it's been over a week and no change? How long before he adjusts??

    Also! The room is not new to him. He has played and slept in it many many times before I moved him in permanently and always used to use his litter box when i placed it on this new room for him because i was working in there. I thought that would help the transition?

    Adviiice??? thank you lovelies!!

    Myself have never had problem moving my bunnies to new rooms. If he had lost the litter habit I would start everything over and clean up after him as much as I can.

    How old it’s he and it’s he neutered?

    You could put the box right where he is peeing. Is the litter box new?

    Could you show us a photo of your litter box set up? It could be too small for him and he is hanging his back end over the edge.
