    So I recently bought my lovely bunny Nibbler a brand new fancy 2 level wooden cage, and he keeps eating the wood off of one of the doors on the bottom level. And I know I’m going to get a lot of “He just wants to run around. You need to let him out more”, but he gets let out for at the very least a couple hours every day. And I’ve noticed lately it’s at night when everyone is asleep that he’s doing most of the damage. Is there anything I can do to safely keep him from compleatly ruining it? (It is bunny safe wood, so I’m not worried that it’ll hurt him. I just don’t want him escaping/ruining his new $200 new home.) And it has a platform I can put down to keep him from going down to the bottom level, but I hate doing that to him. It makes me feel like he’s too cooped up. S.O.S. Please and thank you!!!

    It’s just so in-built in them to do things like this, but it can be so annoying! It’s why edges of door frames and base boards are favoured by rabbits. 

    There was another question like this not too long ago.  I suggested covering the parts they are chewing with something like this:

    Right angle lengths of galvanised steel.  Could you find some that is narrow enough to go over the door frame? 

    If you do cover it with something he cannot chew, I’d then add in something to keep him occupied and still give him that chewing action. Fixing seagrass mat to the inside of the door perhaps.

    I buy these because they are $2 and easy to replace.
