      i know that buns do like digging in sheets so sometimes they will mess them up. well like binkybunny suggests putting perfume on it so she keeps away or just keep it out of her reach.

      lol we have SO many toys for her.. phonebook, stuffed bunny and carrot, cardboard boxs from things we order online, random paper thrown on floor for her enjoyment, wood chews (flavored and unflavored), and still she likes to eat our things!!! Especially comforter.. and most recently (along with the comforter).. the bf’s computer chair..

      its not really possible to keep these items out of reach since we let Lilly be free-range.. if we lock her up in her cage she will literally FREAK. She rips at the cage bars with her teeth, so hard I think her poor teeth would come out! And she just throws everything around inside her cage.. digs all food out of food bowl, flips bed upside down, growls, eats at bars, and pouts like a bun you’ve never seen before.. she will turn her butt to me to show she is pissed and lash out at me.. she is insane!! If we just leave her in one room and shut the door to our bedroom she tears up the wood lining on the walls and doors (when we move out.. we are going to have to pay lots to get this fixed) by eating it to try and "open" the door.. she even jumps up on her cage.. and the sink to play with things if we don’t open the door.. the other night she got her foot stuck in the top of her cage!!!!!! Fortunately I knew of her anger and that she had jumped up on the cage so I was watching and immediately was able to get her undone.. now we have a new cage wiht smaller spaces between the bars so hopefully that doesn’t happen again..

      shes a bun that knows what she wants, and how to get it.. thats for sure.

      but anyway, i got slightly off topic.. aside from all the toys that she DOES play with.. she still has to eat our things!!!!

      but what can i say, of course she is being a HUGE cutie right now sleeping under the computer desk… (eta) with one arm streched out, and one ear up.. how can i resist such a cute little creature!!

      My buns are rarely allowed in our room. They love to sleep under our bed and root thru out closets. I try to get them to jump on the bed and they refuse. lol

      I would go with some serious perfume spray on the bed. Or maybe get one of those room deodrizers that spray ever so often. That may keep it just strong enough for her to not want to be around it. I think I would sit something flat on the bed and try and make a deodrizer spray thing reach that far. Maybe put something there where she cant throw it off the bed.

      oh my….. she knows how to get around. luckly my buns only chew on cardbord or wood. they are only 11 months old so they dont get into much trouble. they havent even chewed on any electrical wires. ^ ^ however, boy do they love the carpet. oh, i forgot. have u tried getting her a little blanket/ conforter of her own she can chew and put her scent all over? try that along with the perfume and maybe over time you dont need the perfume anymore. ionno, just a suggestion

      lillybear- i have a bottle of phooey stuff. It didn’t work with Fujoe, but it might work on your bunny. You can try to spray it on the comforter to see if she won’t dig at it. Also, try the perfume if you haven’t… once again didn’t work for fujoe, but might work for you.. I’m down in your area on tue. I’m starting a job at G2 which is at jackson and peoria. I work from 10-6.. maybe we can meet up really quick and I can give you the bottle? email me to let me know… if you haven’t tried this stuff already.

      uh oh, can she banned from your room?   I know you want to allow her freedom to go anywhere, but if nothing else is working….

      I think the only thing that could possibly curb this is if you were able to catch her every single time she even jumped on the bed and make her jump off immediately, or pick her up and take her off.   This can take a while and persistence, and if you just don’t have the time to deal with it, or if she still isn’t deterred then it may mean banning her from the room.

      There are things things that snap (can’t remember the name!!)  that make a loud snapping noise when a bunny jumps on the furniture. I got them once because my first bunny liked to chew holes in the couch where we sat, but the snappers didn’t stay long because they were so loud that they would scare me too, and I was afraid if they would give me heartattack, imagine what they would do to my bunny.  But many bunny people swear by them.  

      If I can remember the name, I’ll post it.

      Amanda- she’s a rearranger! So is my bunny. But, she loooooves laying in bed with me. She will rearrange, but not bite my bed stuff. hmmm…. try spraying some febreeze on the bed sheets and comforter to see if that stops her. Have you tried the water bottle…spraying her when she’s naughty? Works for cats and bunnies. That’s how I trained my bunny.
