Question One more Litter Box Question

Ok, rabbit experts

My little bunny is 9 wks old and a couple of days. He came to me at almost 7 wks old. He started off using his litter box but for the last couple of nights he has urinated in his fleece bed. (Of course I could catch him since it was during the night).
He started from the day by urinated again in his clean fleece bed. So I took out his bed and moved his litter box where his bed was.
So far he has used his litter box. Should I put his bed back but on the other side of this cage or just wait and see if he will continue to use his litter box first.

Maybe I'm rushing his training and expecting too much of him?

Any advice/suggestions? Thanks bunches!!

Hes only 9 weeks old, so he isnt going to be perfect, but so far hes doing better than most!
As for peeing on his bed, Ive noticed that its kinda an obcession for un-fixed bunnies. Smudge used to do the same thing- when ever there was any sort of blanket, bed, or other fluffy snuggly thing near by, he would pee on it and pretty much use it as a litter box. But since hes been fixed, hes stopped doing it. So Im guessing that its some kind of hormonal/territorial thing.
If he keeps using his litterbox, you can try washing his bed and putting it back in his cage... Sometimes they just want their litterbox in a certain place, and are perfectly fine once its there.

No problem! I hope he can keep his bed in his cage, LOL.
