I wish I could line the box with newspaper - but if my boys realize there's paper, they dig and dig till they can pull it completely up, and tear it apart. What a mess! I've been using a garbage bag to wrap the entire litter box. Makes cleanup real easy.

My only concern, Baxter n Boo, is that a bunny may decide to chew on the garbage bag and ingest some plastic - which is very bad for them. I have found that if I take a large garbage bag and put the litter pan in it about half way, tip out everything and tap the bottom, nearly all of it dumps in cleanly before I even have to wash or wipe it down. BB's new scooper she's selling in the store works very well for scraping out the final bits, then a rinse, a water/vinegar rinse, and a rinse again gets it super clean.

Just got this new litter box from Amazon. The wire mesh I made is 20 x 13.75 inches. Should fit nicely once there's litter in it. This is to make it easier for them to get in and out. The box is Agree RG155 Table-Top Gardener Portable Potting Tray. Nice quality, rounded edges.

I used to have a corner litter-box, and while she'd use it consistently, her butt would hang off the edge and make a mess in the rest of the cage. I recently just switched to another litter-box; I bought it about a year ago, but realized it was a bit big for her cage. However, I'm switching her cage out for a condo this month, and wanted to start the transition slowly. So the first aspect of her habitat to change is her litter-box. (As well as the relocation of her hay racks, so that they're next to the box.)

I bought a litter-box for ferrets, because the cat litter-boxes seemed really bulky, and they just looked enormous on her (she's 4 pounds). Also, ferrets apparently have peeing habits that require them to have high walls, which I wanted for eliminating any opportunity for her butt to hang off the edge. This box also features an easy-to-access entry, wide and low. I'm surprised no one's mentioned ferret litter-boxes here yet! Though this one may be a bit small for a medium-sized rabbit.

 

 

Sorry for the bad photo quality. DX Misplaced my camera, so I used my laptop's built in one.

I bought a pet carrier, at the time thinking he would use it as his private/hidey space, and I could use it to take him to the vet (neutering). So I added it to his house that we built, and guess what? Yes, it is now his toilet! Dam extravagant toilet!
I love your ferret litter tray - but we don't have ferrets here (or not that I know of?), ha ha hah! Isn't it amazing that once something is labelled - as much as it may be perfect for another use, it is not suggested, & passed on. Such a shame - I'm sure that was way cheaper than a $70 carrier???

lol, a carrier would make for a very fancy and expensive litter box. XD My litter box was a bit cheaper than a litter box for cats, but was more expensive than the corner litter box I was using before. I don't quite remember the exact cost anymore, but it was something like $12 - $20.

And yes, it's odd! It's also funny that a lot of products that are labeled as "for rabbits" aren't always the best you could get for them. For litter, I actually use a cat litter called Yesterday's News. I believe someone who posted earlier on this thread mentioned that they also use it.

Yes, I've heard that too - maybe we are both thinking of the same forum? Me... I still use the newspaper, catalogues and the best part - my mail 'shredded'! Some people have a sign up saying 'no junk mail' - not me! Ha ha hah! When I get low, I have considered pinching the neighbours??? Tooo funny!

Do your rabbits not dig up the newspaper? I would really like to line the litter box with newspaper to help protect the tub, but mine dig it all up

I adore this. Do your rabbits ever have accidents outside their litter box? If so, how often?

No, my boy doesn't dig up the newspaper, but I have heard that some do???? Henry literally uses it as a toilet! does his business and he's out. And no, he doesn't have any accidents outside - he had to get one thing right for ME! ha ha ha... He's a naughty, cheeky bunny!
I can't help but wonder with my set up, its easily accessible from inside and outside his cage and it offer's him privacy, why he's so good with it?
