        What all have you found most effective for chewing and electrical cords? I’m getting ready to further expand my bun’s free roam space. I’m planning to completely block off what I can, but would like to find an effective protective tubing for a couple of spots. I’m a little overwhelmed by all of the choices to do that and am afraid of choosing something ineffective/dangerous. Tips? Or other ideas if there’s really no safe tubing? Thanks in advance!

          The most secure thing for an area the bun will have unsupervised access to is to completely block access to the cords with storage cube grids (such as an are behind a desk with lots of cords). If that’s not possible, I really like the hard sided “cord concealers”, or using a section of PVC pipe. I’ve also packed extra cord into a plastic tupperware container and protected it that way. The softer cord wraps will really just give the bun an extra layer to chew through. They do help because they make the cord less enticing, but I wouldn’t trust them for an area where the bun was going to be unsupervised.

            Yes, PVC pipes are the way to go. Probably the most bunny-proof of the “cord protectors” available. You can use the soft tubing, but a determined bunny will eventually chew through those if you’re not paying attention.
