In the interest of full disclosure, I am a newbie with a bunny. I've had him for 2 weeks, but he is also a digger. Knowing that, I bought him a hand towel from Goodwill. He LOVES digging with it. I just leave it in his cage. Also, from the clothes I've been wearing, he like flannel alot, so I'll probably get him some of that as well. He also likes newspaper bunching and shredding.
Also- is my bunny the only one who eliminates (both pees and poops) while digging? I'm trying to litter box train, but you can only have some many boxes of shredded paper! Suggestions?
Jessica prefers to dig into my flesh....at least most of the time. Our diggers at work love shredded paper. My supervisor has a shredder for confidential docs and it creates enough shreds for 2 bunnies.
Leo loves having the shreds in his bed...the more the better. For Trigger, I bought a cardboard tube for cement. I filled the tube w/ balled up newspaper. He loves to dig through to the other side. Both "toys" are cheap and easy. Shredded paper is great b/c we need to shred our personal documents...but...be careful what you shred and don't mix in plastic windowed envelopes, strange paper materials or colors, or shiny papers. Many buns eat the paper and that stuff is obviously no good!
