        I adopted 2 bunnies about a month after I took them in as fosters, and they like to rip up the corners of rooms with carpet. There are 3 corners they have ripped up, 2 so badly that I had to just cover those corners up, 1 with a litter box and the other with a cedar chest. I am just worried they are going to hurt themselves, since there are tacks and stuff under the carpets. Is there any toy out there, any remarkable feat of engineering that someone has designed a toy for rabbits to help them feel like they are digging a hole?

          The best solution for me has been to put heavy ceramic tiles over the trouble spots, and then provide a grass matt or cardboard cat scratcher nearby for them to focus on instead. Phone books are also good for that urge to shred and dig if you can find one!  You can also try providing a digging box, but often these turn into litter boxes 😆

              A phone book sounds like a good idea! I think I still have a couple.

              Just keep covering until the whole floor is covered (serious :/). Other things are only extremely short term distractions. Can also buy them their own couch.

                I have a cardboard cat house (😬 house intended for actual cats) that has a replaceable cardboard cat scratching board as a floor. My destructo bun loves getting in there to destroy. (*I’m sorry, Snöa! Bunstructo! I know the proper term is bunstructo!)

                (*Snöa is my bun’s name.)

                  Yes, I’ve always had the best luck with large ceramic tiles. Like 12×12 sized ones.
