Peeing! - Not my carpet!
I adopted my 'litter trained' bunnies almost a month ago. Both boys had been real great at not making messes on my floor. I attached a large X-Pen to their hutch so when i wasn't home they still had alot of room to play.
Well Baby who is 2 or 3 years old has taken to peeing not in the litter pan(s) but anywhere he feels like it in the x-pen.
I started with adding litter pans to the places he was going, but instead of using them he just went somewhere else.
His 'brother' (not really) Jack is very good with ALWAYS useing the litter box, and no misses or anything.
Today I saw Baby had once again peed on the X-Pen floor, BUT not only that but ON my carpet outside of his pen! (They get the run of my large living room when i am home).
So I cut down the X-pen space for just enough room for one bunny to sit, or then they are in the litter pans.
I'm useing Natures Miracle to remove the carpet stains, is there anything that works better?
And does anyone have any tips on litter training?
These are my first pair of bunnies, i don't want to do anything wrong.
Also, it seems this behaviour is just getting worse, is there something i could check for to make sure my bunny isn't ill? (I know some cats pee on things when they have health issues).
Oh and for referance my buns diet, They get fresh veggies (Cilantro, Parsley & Romain or carrots) for breakfast, Timothey Complete pellets in the evening, and timothey hay all day long.
Thanks in advance!
Adoption. Is the living option.
