So my new bunny is starting to get used to her new surroundings. I have her cage nestled in our kitchen, with a baby gate up, so she's stuck in the kitchen while I"m at work.  I would like to buy some of those gride cube things, thats all the rave on this site!, to put around the living room to bunny proof it. However, the little sucker has taken to chewing on the baby gate. She nimbed a bit of the pastic coating off of the metal wire underneath. I was able to shove some cardboard in front of the wire part, so no more chewing, but with the gride cubes, should I be concerned about her chewing on them? I doubt plastic is good for her tummy.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated, I'm new to the bunny mummy world. ;o)  Thanks.

Wait til the day you come home from work and she jumped over the gate and ate all the buttons off your remote. I don't think it's the most healthy thing, but you'll find out that buns eat all sorts of things they shouldn't and you eventually stop worrying. Freya bites her cubes all the time, one of her very favorite things to do is to sit in front of her door and shake it with her mouth. I haven't noticed any paint chipped off yet, but I won't worry when I do unless it's a whole lot at once. If she's acting like her normal self and eating and pooping she's probably fine.
I'm CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

OMG! I didn't know I was the only one without remote buttons! What a relief!

Distractions for the daytime always prove helpful to curb the un-needed chewing. Search this site for the Octopus toy (WHICH WAS BRILLIANT) and make sure lots of other goodies are around for nibbles, and it will calm down.

Congrats on being a new bunny mom!
I didn't realize when they said house rabbit, this rabbit would be the size of a house! :)

Mine nibble on their cages from time to time, and I haven't had any problem with the NIC cubes chipping, I wonder if it is made of something different than the baby gate. I don't think you want her to ingest a whole bunch of plastic or chipped paint, but as Adalaide said, sometimes you just can't anticipate everything that they are going to do! I don't think you will have as much of a problem with the NIC cubes though.
