Lately, in the past week, my 5 month old rabbit has been chewing on her litter box and then flipping it over, both litter boxes, the one in her cage and the one outside the cage in my kitchen. Why is she doing this? Is there a reason? Will it ever stop, its to the point where every day I have to change her bedding in her cage because her cage is filled with poop from the flipped litter box.
Sounds like as she's reaching sexual maturity, she may be getting a bit destructive with things. Some females dig, move things around to get them out of her way, or just venting pented up energy due to her hormones.
Another member mentioned clipping the box to the cage. That works well. You can usually get clamps from a hardware store.
