Seb and Dotty continue to snuggly happily together. The only little thing that's cropped up so far, is that Dotty has a different idea to Seb as to where the toilet is!

Seb has always used his litter tray in the hutch, so nice and easy to stay clean and fresh. He has never littered in the run. Dotty however, does not use the litter tray and has picked a corner of the run for all her waste products.

I tend to clear away the poo's twice a day, but its the wee that's becoming an issue. It smells fairly strong and has killed off a patch of grass. I don't want this corner attracting flies. I've tried putting a litter tray in the corner with some of Dotty's poo's and wee, but she just opts to toilet just in front of it, creating another piddle patch Sad Don't know how to make sure this area remains clean and fresh!!

Ok?! She knows where the corner is but Peebles next to the tray. What litter do you use? Is it the same they used in the rescue you got her from. If it is not familiar they may not want to use it.
Persist maybe she will learn from Seb they usually copy the other.
Hope she finds toilet manners pronto.

I think that you should persist with the tray... nice layer of hay on top and keep putting her poos into it. If you can soak up some of the wee on a tissue, put that in there too.

No further forward with Dotty and the litter tray!

Today, I noticed a few small flies hanging round the corner where Dotty goes and I went into panic mode! I covered the corner with fresh soil over the piddle patch. I've over-used a nice smelling disinfectant all over the wooden frame of the run and over the concrete that surrounds it! I've place Dotty's clean litter tray over the new soil to make the corner good again. No flies now! Her tray has a nice layer of hay on top to try and win her over. Hmmmm...

Whilst turning my attention to cleaning the hutch, I noticed Dotty in the corner of the run pooping right next to the litter tray! AArrgghhh!! Lets hope she gets it soon! Those flies today did worry me.

We keep their hutch so clean and make sure everything is fresh and dry. We always use good petsafe disinfectant to make sure it smells clean. I don't want any fly strike issues because of the run.

I wondered if I got a flat gardening type tray and put in her corner weather she would use that?? I need something to keep everything hygienic!

The gardening tray might be worth a go...

I don't know how high your litter tray is but it might be a bit tall. I know Mr Mo finds it a bit of a leap into theirs (although he is a good boy and uses it always).

Oh, yes, flies.
Time to get the Rearguard in stock!
Would Dotty be tempted to use the tray if you put it in a box. You know, make a box into a house to cover the tray. It can often work if a rabbit has been used to hutch life.

Thought I would try something else for her today.  I got a cat litter tray and cut out a section at the front, making it low, easy access.  Lined it with paper, litter and a good layer of Dotty's favourite hay.  I did actually see her sit in it..... it was only briefly.. but she sat in it!  Lets hope this is the beginning of progress!

If this fails, then I shall try a box over the litter tray as suggested by woodwench x

I suggested the box over the tray as I thought it might give her a little confidence boost. Being safe from prying eyes while she does her business (with some yummy hay to help things along) might be just what the vet ordered. To sit in a tray in the open pen might make her nervous and feel vulnerable if she isn't completely used to having all that space; the box could act like a safety blanket.

sounds good to me woodwench! Its my next move if Dotty still doesn't like the tray!

not sure... there is evidence of a wee and some poo's in the tray..... but I have a feeling that Seb may of been responsible! I cannot be sure though and I'd love to think its Dotty making progress (it would be a first for her). There were still poo's all round the area of the tray which is definitely Dotty doing! I keep putting the poo's in the tray... will see how it goes the next few weeks!

It's been a while! Seb and Dotty continue to be a very happy, content couple. All good in Seb's world! Nothing much to report. Might try and take some new photos later

Dotty uses the provided "loo" and hay box........ but still likes to tinkle/poop right next to it too! Its a little better in that she doesn't do it over such a wide area now, but she seems to like having multiple bathrooms! Its no problem, just means a bit more cleaning up and making sure it stays fresh.

The most interesting thing.... Dotty is now the more friendly bunny!! She is relaxed in our company and likes a fuss much more than Seb! Seb on the other hand, decided he is far to important and superior to be touched by human hands. He is still lovely and friendly and comes running over, takes food, but doesn't want any fuss!! He rules!
