Harry is really getting on my nerves these days! He used to use the litter box like a good little bunny is supposed to, with only a few slip ups here and there which were fine with me. I don't mind cleaning, after all. Lately, Harry has been pooping everywhere except the litter box! So...I thought maybe the corn cob was too hard for his majesty's tushie, so I switched to ultra carefresh in the litter box and aspen bedding in the cage. This worked for about a day.
I cleaned the whole shed today in hopes that Harry's behaviour had turned around. I was sooo wrong. I came back in the shed about an hour after I got done cleaning Harry's play pen, cage, house, litter box, straw mat, and toys. What do I see? Poopies, poopies everywhere!!!
Not only did Harry poop on everything including his recently cleaned foodbowl, but he also is going back to having very very soft droppings.
I don't understand this at all. I have ruled out all foods that could be causing diarrhea including carrots, which are Harry's favorite treats.
The most frustrating thing is, as soon as Harry gets done pooping, he sits in it, so I don't have a chance to clean up after him before he could get dirty. Does he enjoy sitting in a steaming, wet, stinky pile of...poo?
I once read that rabbits were clean by nature and did not go to the bathroom near their food. Harry doesn't seem to care at all where he goes! He still eats, drinks, plays, and acts normally, so I don't know what could be wrong. The vet has done tests before, but since he has to go in for a check up soon anyways, I'll ask the vet to do more tests. I don't want Harry to be/get sick, as I have no clue what this messy problem is all about. Any suggestions are welcome!
