I have quite a few things for Mimzy to chew on, toilet paper rolls being one of them. But I noticed lately that when she chews the rolls, there is no pieces of it anywhere in her cage where she was chewing it. So I'm lead to think she's eating it instead of just chewing, is this bad? And should I remove the cardboard if she's eating it?

Her droppings are normal and nothing seems to be wrong with her.

Thanks!

 

*EDIT* Oops! I think this should have gone in the House rabbit Q & A

My rabbits are constantly chewing cardboard and I know they eat it. I think it only becomes a problem when the bunny stops eating hay and is eating a ton of cardboard. As long as Mimzy is eating hay and pooping I think she's fine

My buns chew cardboard and Olivia will eat pretty much the entire toilet paper tube. It doesnt hurt them as long as they are not going overboard but make sure that the toilet tubes are the brown kind and dont have any visible glue. When I give cardboard boxes I always peel off any ink as well.

Mine eat cardboard and paper - totally normal. As long as she's still eating plenty of hay, it's find. The only time to worry is if they fill up on so much cardboard that they don't bother eating hay anymore.
