      I have an abundance of cheesecloth scraps from a craft project that I’ve been thinking about turning into rabbit toys. Like a rag ball, rope, and just plain strands that hang to be pulled. Is cheesecloth too fragile and therefore a possible obstruction? What do you think, good, bad, keep under watch?

       

      Thanks!

      sounds like a good idea, though my bun was always facinated with strings, any strings she could pull offf of her bed/rugs/towels etc… and i wouldn’t think that is good for their digestive tract… though… a little wouldn’t hurt maybe as long as they weren’t cosuming big pieces.

      I am by no means a bun professional, but if your buns part goat like mine is, it might mean trouble.

      Yeah, thats what I’m afraid of. It might be a supervision only type of toy.

      Cheesecloth is is a loose weave of cotton string. Its used in cooking to strain things, or boil herbs and spices, and a million other things…….and I thought maybe bunny toys but we’ll have to see.

      i’m thinking no b/c of the strings being pulled out and ingested. even with supervision, the bun might chew off a small piece and eat it before you even notice. it is very delicate, like you said, so i think it would be easily torn apart by a determined bun. many people use raffia rope or sisal. that is safe if ingested…

      I am thinking that the strands would be ingested and cause a blockage. Too bad if you have so much around the house. But maybe you can come up with something?

      I agree. I think its a no-go altogether. Back to brainstorming! Thanks!
