    HOw do you litter box train them? Do you think they make better pets than cats? I am intrigued. They are quite beautiful animals, arent' they. WE use to have rats, and they were great pets. I had a baby squirrel, but he was not a good pet. I wonder about a bunny . . . . .

    I didn't have to teach my bunny. She just knows. She will poop outside the cage if the cage is dirty.
    If you just watch where your bun likes poo & pee, you put a litter box there and then they will naturally start going in the box. I put lots of hay in there for my bun to snack on while going potty. ;]

    As a cat lover and someone who has had cats a good chunk of her life. I prefer bunnies over cats.

    Bunnies are very proud and loving creatures. If you show them lots of love they will show it back. And honestly, rabbits are devoted to their slaves. Boo hangs out in his cage when new people are around. He's not a fan of strangers lol.

    I got Boo at 5 weeks old and he was litter trained within a week or two. They pee in one spot. However as babies they do have "accidents" when being handled.

    I couldn't get him to poop in his litter box consistently until he was neutered. Neutered and spayed buns will poop in their litter box naturally within a month or so after being "fixed". Pooping everywhere is their way of marking. They are funny that way. But bun poop is no problem to pick up. Its just little pellets.

    I love my little man. And since he's been neutered he's even more loving and cuddly. Always spay or neutered your rabbits unless you use them for breeding.

    We had a small Belted Dutch that was housebroken. At night she wasn't caged and about 2 am would get a case of the sillies and go high speed around the place, up on the bed jump onto the floor and race for the living room and back again. It lasted about 10 minutes. When she landed on top of the bed she'd almost knock the wind out of me. I've been thinking of getting one of those big Flemish Giants. I've done cat litter for cats for more years than I care to remember. Not sure I want to do it for a rabbit. At least a cat will mouse.

    OMG The Flemish are so adorable but WAY to big for me lol. I don't need a rabbit bigger then my dog

    And litter for a rabbit is super easy. I use the wood pellets for stoves. $6 for a big bag and it lasts me almost 3 months. I just scoop the pee corners out and use a litter scoop to take the top layer of poop out. Once or twice a week I will dump it and fill it again. But its so much easier to do then cat litter. Plus rabbits will snuggle and entertain you for hours on end and wont scratch your furniture to pieces

    I use the large flake horse shavings that are dust-free. I just dump the pan 3-4x a week and rinse it with vinegar. I usually put some baking soda in the box so it doesnt smell AS bad.

    I really want a sable point bun.

    What are you using? I just want to throw out there as so many people don't know this. Pine shavings are very dangerous for rabbits. They cause liver faliure over time.

    Ummm.. Good question. Not sure. I will look at the barn when I go down again. I don't think they are pine.
