My mams friend has a rabbit and he's not neutered yet (she can't afford to get him done just yet so will be at least a few months while she saves for it)
he's started doing all the typical male bunny things, humping and peeing EVERYWHERE, so wondering what she could do to discourage him a bit until she can afford to get him done? He's an indoor bunny and spoilt rotten, and very loved.

She's finding it hard to cope with him atm so I wanna try and find something she can do to help a bit :wave:

Sorry hun I don't think there is much she can do except bring his neuter forward if she really can't cope

I would imagine it is hard to litter train an unneutered lad, Scarlett was a nightmare for peeing everywhere before she was spayed and the humping is natural behavior. I wouldn't try to discourage it to be honest because he isn't doing anything wrong, its just what bunnies do :) He should stop after his neuter though

For the peeing I guess just try litter training, with lots of litter trays

I know Charlie was awful for peeing everywhere when he was younger but I saved the money from him being young and got him snipped as soon as I could, but I understand she can't just go ahead and do it.
I figured it'd probably be that but jus figured it's worth seeing if anyone knows anything that could help a bit :)
