Now can a rabbit be litter box trained if a kitten can be? and it does have to be; they don't come that way but mom didn't want to fool with the bunny anymore so it's back at our house and now lo has a new kitten so....hm, should I keep the rabbit for when she comes to our house or should I return it?

I litter trained ALL of my rabbits. It's actually easier than you think

 

Rabbits generally poop in one spot of their home, usually away from where they eat. Try not to use clay litter but special rabbit pellets. Clay litter can cause a lot of dust which can be harmful to the rabbit.

 

How old is the rabbit?

I cannot believe you people; who would have thought; I certainly didn't, that you could litter train rabbits, not sure if they care anymore, not really sure they ever really did, mom has her way and if things don't go that way then it's over, but question to both of you; did you then keep the rabbit in a cage, seems not by "pooping" away from where they eat; may check into this, then, in terms of keeping it here then, hm, it did get out the other day when I didn't lock its cage back - don't like the kind of lock ds got for it - yep, here we go again - and not sure how I feel about it hopping around the house, not quite like a kitten and how does it even feel, guess I feel like it wants to be outside but it is a domestic so wouldn't be able to handle that, would it? more like a puppy around that I've gotten out of the habit of, being in the country or at least with a country hub, any of ya'll have that no dogs in the house mentality? though I always had a small one inside growing up;

oh, how old, hm - short answer, don't know, how can I find out? thanks

well, we don't have to worry about the rabbit anymore; may have to worry about Liza, maybe she won't remember now that she has the kitten - RIP

Just saw this, LN! Not sure if you mean the rabbit died or you gave it away or what... If it dies, I'm so sorry... regardless, I hope Liza doesn't notice the rabbit's absence too much, as you say...

yes, Sat. dh decided it had been in long enough (even though they kept it in all the time but we never did but then they weren't pets when we had them); that it needed some fresh air and sunshine, so he put it outside on the picnic table - where I at least thought it might be safe from our dogs, which is another reason I hadn't put it outside; that's also what happened to the ones we did have - oh, that's a whole other story, sorry - but then turns out he just didn't think about that or would have gone ahead and taken it to the garage, - (so guess it wasn't the fresh air/sunshine after all, was it - well, I Try to give him credit; he really just wanted it out of the house - oh well)anyway we went to town - to try to help ds out with a fence issue he had, to check to see why it was dragging - if it was what dh thought; now why he didn't take his tools with him that he would need if it were I don't understand rather than have to come all the way back for them, but anyway...it was and we did and when we did we found the cage not on the table but on the ground - now, was it the dogs or the wind...or the rabbit itself somehow but however, was the blow/shock of the fall or the dogs or the heat - of all days, was probably the most hot/humid day we'd had - poor little rabbit, after not having been outside, at least in a while, even though before we got it it was only outside, anyway, it was gone, as in, yes, dead, really, as in - stiff dead - must not have taken long, at least maybe didn't suffer, because didn't think we were gone that long. I guess I shouldn't keep trying to keep things; should have just either given it away or given it back to begin with, seems like everything I try to keep for her like that something like that happens - have I posted my bed story yet? think I'll check. Anyway even though when it was here she always wanted to see it/be with it, she never mentioned it not being here when she was here Monday night and Tuesday while mom and dad - finally - after the last 2 yrs. of - one, being pregnant, and then last year, having little sister - not being able to go to the fair - got to go, only to find - read a saying not long ago - it's not home you want to go back to; it's your childhood - it wasn't the same; mainly her, she's not the same and he's not either - putting away childish things - not to say you can't still go and have fun but it wasn't the same for them, anyway.

Oh, I realize I've done it again. anyway kept lo for them to go to the fair and thankfully, she never mentioned or seemed to notice the rabbit wasn't here; she's got her kitten now, although we'll see how long that lasts since for some reason it had started - wasn't to begin with - meowing up a storm.

oh, will say, we got into this once before and lost, yes, as in it got killed or died as well, it as well.

Dare I say maybe we just don't need to be the repository for the animals she gets and then decides she's tired of and wants to get rid of?
