AnswerThey are spraying to "mark" their territory. It is to tell all other animals that this area belongs to them, plus all living things need to urinate sometime!

However if your rabbit is a male, they also spray urine as a sexual activity. You might get sprayed, but that is your rabbit telling you that it needs a female in its life.

Are you asking if babies rabbits can die from getting their urine on them or are you asking if baby rabbits will die if they do not urinate?? Baby rabbits will die if they are in an unsanitary nest full of their urine (a wet nest) baby rabbits will also die if they are not stimulated to urinate which the mother does after she feed s them until they are old enough to go without her stimulation. That is why if you are bottle feeding you must stimulate the babies to get them to urinate everytime you feed them.
