Hi Charlie TGIF!!!! Its Marie again I have Snowball the holland lop bunny. I have it running between the kitchen and hall its gated off. He's still pooping all over we had him trained to go in his cage but he does not do it anymore I am not sure if he thinks that this spot is his cage or what its been going on for awhile. We never litter box trained him because he would not go in it. During the day I let him have the run of the house for a couple hours and he loves it he binks (SP). But when he's running around he also poops and pee's where he;s running..l What should I do I am nervous about puting him into the cage at night when we go to bed to retrain him I feel its cruel because the cage is small. Do you have any suggestions??? Thank You so much P.S. He is very spoiled I donnot think he knows he's a bunny I think he think he's one of us LOL!!!!

    Hi Marie, I'm not Charlie, but I have an English Lop (Max) that does the same thing. He gets to stay in his cage when I get tiered of picking up Easter Eggs and wiping up the floor. He doesn't seem to mind, he also has a smaller cage. Have you tried to put several litter boxes out just to see if he will use it. I would even lay out papers because you can roll them up and put it in the trash. I have thought about having Max fixed but didn't know if it would help. I think it could because it looks like he is kind of marking when he does this.

Hi there, My name is Brittney and I am a preschool teacher and one of my co teachers just got a bunny for her classroom. I am concerned that this little guy (Thumber) doesn't get the proper care. He is usually in his cage all the time unless being cleaned. I was wondering if you could give me a detailed list about how to care for this bunny, ways to potty train, diet, play, how long a day he should be out of his cage etc. He is such a lover, and it makes me sad he doesnt get the attention he deserve, therefore i will be taking it on myself. So this info would be soooo greatly appreciated!!! He is about 7 months old. It would also be nice to get info about being around children ways to maybe make it more comfortable for him, the more the better on all the above! :) thanks

    Litter training is pretty easy but needs consistancy.  Having the rabbit stay nights and weekends at school may make it a bit hard.  Normally they will pick favorite spots to go to the bathroom.  When you figure it's spots put a litter box there with some of it's droppings inside the box.  If you want it to learn the box over the spot, place a few litter boxes throughout the room with their droppings in it and they will usually get the hint. 

    They rabbit will need a lot of touching and attention to make it calm when handled.  First the kids will need to be educated and closely monitored.  He will need exercise like any animal, unless the cage is huge will need time to stretch and run.

I had a floppy ear rabbit, it was brown. I gave it water and rabbit food. Most of the time I gave it vegetables, also carrots. It died a few months later because it didn't want to eat any of its food. I always use to take it out in the back yard to walk around. Sometimes it ate the grass. I loved it. His name was Cookie. It was the best animal I ever had until it died. We buried it in the back yard. Well, that is my comment about my rabbit I use to have. The end.

    Where did you get your rabbit? Did he belong to anyone else before you got him?

    You can't give your rabbits just vegetables. they should only be given vegetables once in a while. You MUST avoid lettuce as well.

Hi Charlie Sorry to bother you again its me Marie with Snowball he is starting to poop around the house and not in his cage like we trained him. Over the last few weeks we started training him to come into the living room and have his freedom around the house but now it seems since we did this he is pooping and peeing wherever he wants how can I stop him from doing this he never did it before... Thank you so much have a great day!!!Marie

    Best guess here is you need a litter box in the cage but you also need one outside the cage.  If the bunny is loose - it is not going to want to go back in the cage - like sending a child to his room.  So put one just outside the cage.  Introducing the bunny to the house - you have to let the bunny do that on his own.  You would open the cage door and the bunny would come out and hopefully slowly explore returning as needed to litter and food.  If you pick him up and bring him into the living room - how can he know the way back.  I'd just start over with a litter on the outside of the cage and let him explore on his own.  That's a best guess - though that is how my daughter did it and her bunnies have the run of the house with the cats and dogs and birds.

    Hi, I am living in Singapore, and have 2 champagne d'argent. Am interested to get one giant flemish. Does the farm where you got your giant, import to Singapore. What is the cost of one?
    Thanks.
  • JOHN VERNON - 2012-09-29
    Singapore is not a suitable place for such an animal. It is far to hot with very high humidity and also you would need to have a large property which is not common in singapore. It could be quite inhumane to keep flemish giants in such conditions. Differing opinions sought and welcomed.

I have a pair of Polish Rabbits , they are sisters , our problem is one sister keeps biting the other pulling its hair out leaving a sore. We have separated them at this time to prevent more problems and Velvet is healing well.
Is this normal behavior and is there anything we can do to help them get along so they can stay together?
They have an outside hutch as well as inside.
Any suggestions?

    I know this is a few years late, but it's my first time on the site. I came across your posting and felt compelled to respond in case it benefits someone else looking for the same type of answer. From what I have read, females are more territorial then males. Yes, I was surprised to read this while doing my research for my own rabbit the last few months. That is why they say when breeding bunnies to never leave a male and female together (unless they are fixed) because the female is aggressive towards the male because she will claim the space. You are supposed to take the female to the males cage never the other way around. In your case, it sounds like the female is a lot more aggressive and territorial then your other female. You didn't list if they were fixed or not, so this may not apply if they are indeed fixed. However, they have also stated in many sites I've read that if a rabbit is anxious, aggressive, etc before getting fixed it make them permanently that way after they are fixed. The best way to have a bunny fixed is to make sure they are comfortable, not anxious and in a good place temperamentally before having them fixed. However from the information you shared it sounds like a territory issue and the one rabbit is being aggressive towards your other bunny. I hope this helps someone that may be having the same issue and is looking for answers. As for you, i hope this situation has been resolved. Take care!

    I would NOT recommend getting them fixed unless you have a vet that specializes in rabbits around you. DO NOT DO IT IF YOU DO NOT! If the vet is NOT knoledgable on rabbits HE COULD KILL UR RABBIT!!! BE CAREFUL!
