The website that Alikatz1963 is very helpful. I wish I had a computer when I had rabbits in high school.

He has toys, many toys, and he chews on them too as aforementioned in my previous post.

Keep him occupied with toys that he can chew on. It is necessary that they chew

Keep on track

We had several Dutch miniatures when I was 10 or 12...but it's been a few years...

Ours were kept in cages outside so I don't think we ever had to worry about litter box issues. And I don't think we ever really had any chewing issues...or maybe we just didn't notice them because they were outside and chewing on their own cages. I'm not sure. I would check out the web site that was provided and also maybe talk to your vet about these issues. There might very well be a simple solution that I can't think of because I haven't had rabbits in about 30 years.

There was much rejoicing!

Thanks for the article. I've been debating getting a rabbit, but I know almost nothing about them. That article had a lot of useful information in it.

My parents raised rabbits when I was a small child and that's been quite a few years back now. LOL Wish I could be of some help.

I haven't had a rabbit since my teens.

Here is some pretty helpful information on indoor rabbits,

The only other thing I could suggest is using a metal litter pan, or one you don't mind if it gets chewed up. we had a cardboard box and a wooden one so our bunny wouldn't be harmed with the plastic from the plastic cat litter boxes.
and as the link says, lots of exercise and toys.
hope this helps emoticon

The main issue is he keeps chewing on his litter box. I know they need to chew, but I've given toys that hang, wooden chews free in the cage and on that sticks out of the wall, and calcium and salt chews. I've also coated the parts he chews on with vinegar and that hasn't even deterred him.

I raised rabbits for awhile, I'll help if I can, or there are some real good sites on line that are probably breed pacific.

I love rabbits and had a few when I was in junior high. I might be able to answer a few questions.

Do you any of you have them?

Because I have a whole lot of questions, well, maybe just a few.
