I love candles too, and some smell so good, I am tempted to take a bite too! LOL. I do have to keep mine up and out of the way - but mostly because I am just so clumsy, I would be sure to knock them over.
Candles seem to be a favorite for some bunnies. I don't know if it's the scent and soft texture that make it irresistible, but I know that candles are on the "caution list" of things to watch for during Christmas. I haven't read where it's toxic, though I can't imagine large amounts are good! But caution was geared more to the fact that some bunnies like them so much that they may try to get them even while they are burning.
Jhumpa's like that too--though he hasn't discovered candles (yet). He has sampled dozens of our books, and currently has several full-scale demolition projects going. Fortunately, they seem to drop off a new phone book for us once every few months around here. Chewing is one thing, but what puzzles me is that he is so intent on Eating these books/papers/etc. How could that taste good? Why does he do it? Although, I guess if your tummy was geared toward hay and the like, maybe paper isn't such a stretch... ?
