today i am really noticing rabbit pee smell, and my boys are pooping everywhere, i know it is the territorial pooping, and i got my NIC cage put back together, but i don't have my boys in there, i mean i have the door open for them to go in and out but i don't have them shut in yet cause the boys are not neutered yet...

Honeybun the alpha rabbit is first to go, to get neutered

would neutering help with male rabbit pee? the smell that is?  my rabbits have not sprayed yet, but late late last night while i was sleeping Honeybun jumped on the bed on top of my dog, which startled the heck out of him and my dog barked and snapped at him, which caused Honeybun to get startled and he sprayed... gotten a little bit on me....

my dog have not hurt him or anything, it is like when i am sound asleep and Honeybun jumped on me which startled me and i would hollar hey! that what my dog reaction was like

 

it was rainy last night and today, perhaps that is why the smell is more noticable

when i get Honeybun neutered, do i need to shut him in the cage? leaving blackjack out??

i want to start retraining them to use the litterbox, i mean they are using the litterbox, but just leaving trails of poop here and there, even in the cage, in the area where honeybun likes to sleep or sit at, he leave poop there.......

or is it since they are bunnies, they will still leave trail of poop everywhere anyway, right?

i have had each of the boys for 5 months, i gotten them when they were a month old....

the thing i don't like about the poops is that when i walk around barefooted and step on one of them dookies and they are like hard as a rock and hurts my feet sometimes.. and i am getting tired of dragging out the wet/dry vaccum out to clean up the dookies, i discovered that using regular vacuum cleaner don't work on rabbit poo, well actually vaccumming up the rabbit poo and bits of hay is what killing the regular vacum cleaner, i have had the vaccum cleaner for 5 months and it is not sucking very well anymore...

i am feeling a tad guilty, i called in sick today at work, and i am not really sick, it is that it is rainy and i feel kinda draggy, this type of weather tends to make me feel really tired, and my left leg is hurting a lot, it have been bugging me for the past couple of days and i figured standing all day on my leg would not help any, i think again it is the weather... i told them that i woke up with my stomach hurting but that i was calling mainly about my leg how it was hurting a lot.. they said no problem, i was like cool... i work at a restuarant in the kitchen...there is a lot of busy work there, and requires standing all day long with half an hour lunch break and a couple of 5 min smoke breaks

i gotta go get some coffee, gotta get some energy

so what do i do? wait til both boys are neutered before putting them in their cage or what?

OH YES!! I volunteer every week at a local rabbit rescue and clean about 50+ rabbit cages, and I can ALWAYS tell which one hasn't been neutered yet. I can tell when I'm just gettins somewhat close to his/her area. What's probably happening is now that your bunnies are reaching sexual maturity, they are adding a pungent territorial aroma. This does get soooooo much better after surgery (though it'll take about a full month)

All bunnies should be altered before going through a bonding process. Which means you have to go through a bonding process - even when they get altered, rabbits won't automatically just get along. Altering rabbits just makes it so that it's more likely for them to get along after a bonding process which takes an average of 3 weeks. Check out the bonding section on binkybunny and/or check out rabbit.org and type in bonding in the search bar, and you'll find tons of tips.

i want to start retraining them to use the litterbox, i mean they are using the litterbox, but just leaving trails of poop here and there, even in the cage, in the area where honeybun likes to sleep or sit at, he leave poop there.......

or is it since they are bunnies, they will still leave trail of poop everywhere anyway, right?

Some bunnies are persistant poopers, but most, once trained, won't leave a full trail. Jack and Rucy never ever poop or pee outside of their box - except for a few that fly out when they jump out of the box. Bailey, on the other hand, still tries to be the boss of everything and everyone, and I do have to watch her. But she knows the word "litterbox" and so if I see leaving trails or going in the wrong place, I just say "litterbox" a few times and off she goes to the box.

i have had the vaccum cleaner for 5 months and it is not sucking very well anymore...

I think because, even though the pellets are basically dry, they still carry moisture, that can eventually cause problems with clogging the hose, and/or problems with the filter. I wall hanging mini shopvac to clean out their pen - mostly for hay since they have good habits, but the shopvac also can take moisture really well. It's meant for that. The Shark cordless sweeper is a good for picking up poos too!

Oh, we have all done it! Sometimes you just have to, for no other reason, then just to take a break for yourself. So hopefully you were just able to relax and enjoy, so you could feel rejuvinated.
