Just joined and have had my bunny for 3 weeks. I wound up deciding to go with a 43x29 bunny condo. Clover has plenty of room, a ramp, etc. She likes her house, however, I've noticed within the last week or so that she is chewing on her cage bars which are white coated vinyl (?). She doesn't appear to be ingesting the pieces as I find many of them on the floor, and I haven't seen any alarming symptoms. However, I'd like for her to stop chewing on them. She has plenty of stuff in her house--a phonbook, paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, a small basket with hay in it, an oatmeal container with hay in it (shes likes to find a treat in it), willow twigs to chew, wooden shaped carrots, but yet she wants to chew on the bars.
Originally, I thought it was boredom, so I put more stuff in there. Then, I saw her doing this right in front of me with pulling on the bars too! So I'm thinking partly to get out and partly as an attention-seeking behavior which I try to ignore.
Anyone know safe deterrents? I tried bitterend which is all natural, but that did not faze her. I thought I read on this site somewhere about lemon/lemon juice?
Thanks in advance
