    My bunny is around 2/3 months old and is a male. We got him about 2 weeks ago and we keep him in a cage in my room. We keep him in a cage at night and while we are away (at school/work). I feel bad for him because rabbits are most active from dusk until dawn and he is being kept in a cage at that time. I want to let him free roam around my room at night but i have a problem: he keeps jumping on the bed. I don't want him to do this because i'm scared that he will pee/poop on the bed.
    When he jumps on the bed i quickly remove him, i clap loudly but nothing works. Would you know how to prevent him from jumping on my bed?

    The only way would be to fence off your bed, or put a layer of puppy pads and washable fleece blankets on top of your bedding to soak up accidents! As he’s a young boy he will likely start being a mucky urchin up until he’s neutered.

    I always put sheets of tarp on the bed when my rabbits are out loose, i then put towels or old sheets over the tarp.

    Hey North,

    Rabbits are most active at dawn AND dusk, not in between, they sleep throughout the day as a survival instinct passed down from generations of bunnies as they are crepuscular. I would suggest fencing off a section in your room that you feel comfortable having your bunny run around in and purchase a tall, around 42'' dog x pen, they can be used for rabbits, and most people do use dog pens for rabbit roaming places. Hope this helped :)
