Parsley is going through a massive CHEW EVERYTHING phase; books, beds, bags, desks, clothes and skirting boards are not safe! ive tried giving him store bought toys but hes not interested. he doesnt seem to be interested in sticks/logs either and he's lost interest in his phone book
i got him a wicker ball once that he loved but there's really only once place i can order rabbit-safe ones from where i am and they're like $10 + $5 postage, which for 5 minutes of destruction is a little bit pricey! (if anyone knows of a cheaper place to get them in aus or sa that wld be great)
does anyone have any ideas to distract his destruct-o-mode? it seems to be his 24-7 habit lately and is driving me a bit bananas!
Take a walk around the dollar store & you'll be amazed at what kind of things you can find that make great chew toys... and if bunny hates it well... you only paid a buck instead of the ridiculous amounts of money the pet stores are asking...
O, I just realized you're in Australia... Idk if they have those specific stores there but maybe there's similar ones...
My guy isn't usually much of a chewer except for sticks with bark. I caught him attempting to nibble a little on a file-folder in a bookcase briefly. So, I stuck a phone-book (Chicago yellow-pages, so rather thick) in the bookcase, sticking out about 3 inches, with the edges of the pages out. Whenever he gets an urge to nibble on paper, he totally ignores the file-folder and other books and goes to town on the phone-book. His urges only last a few seconds and this seems to work for him.
He also loves paper-towel-tubes stuffed with hay and herbs and pellets (mainly to make noise), but mainly for tossing purposes.
