So Bunny loves to dig at her cage corners and on the sheet/ pillow on the bed. She also tries to pull at the sheet as she digs, but I try to keep her from doing this so she won't accidentally ingest the fabric. So, for over a month I have been trying to make her a diggy box that she will take to. The last attempt was a shallow cardboard box full of shredded paper bags. she will go in it, but not dig.
Until today, she was digging a lot on the bed, and when it was time to go back in her cage, the corners of the cage. so, I slipped the box in to where she was digging. She jumped right in, and instead of digging started collecting all the bits of shredding in her mouth! Fitting as much as she could with it sicking out each end as if she has a mustache. She then held it in her mouth and finally started to dig.
Has anyone else seen their rabbit do this? Eventually when she started to eat what was in her mouth I pulled it out, but she immediately did it again. So, I took the box out for now. I took a video but I don;t know how good the quality is.
