so, about a month ago Fujoe and Patina started to chew on the furniture- hard core. I mean, I had a really bad problem with Fujoe chewing on the baseboards, so I have cardboard stapled to all of the baseboards.
So around the apartment I have cut peices of 2x4's, cardboard boxes, strips of cardboard stapled to all exposed baseboards, 5 phone books, pt tubes, and plastic toys. They always have unlimited hay- so it's not like they are hungy, and they shouldn't be bored.
The thing is, that it's been really bad starting like a month ago. Nothing has changed in that month. They get plenty of attention and are free range except for at night where they are caged in their bunny condo.
So far, nothing has deterred the bunnies.. perfume does NOTHING (i've tried 5 different types), neither does garlic, ivory soap, lemon oil or any type of spray. Spraying the bunnies with water doesn't work either. They both know the command "no" and freak out when I say it (i'm italian, and somehow became an Italian mother with my bunnies), they both know "cage" as I have been herding them towards the cage when they do something bad.
The thing is I can't be there everytime I hear chewing. If anyone has any suggestions that I HAVE NOT tried, please help me out. Using perfume and putting more stuff out isn't something I want to hear. I've done the perfume and I prob. have more chew toys and such out than most people on this forum. I'm sorry if I sound mean, I'm just going really crazy.
