      Hi Someone please help. My bunny Theo is now 10 weeks old and has turned into a nut case, he has gone from cuddly bundle of fluff to super hyper chewing machine. He is eating everything! He has gone through two pairs of headphones, a speaker cable, the tv ariel, some shoes, a handbag and now has taken to peeling off the wallpaper. Is there anything ‘bunny safe’ I can rub on these surfaces to stop Theo from wanting to eat them? Please help, Im trying to tell him no thats wrong and reward the good behaviour but so far its just not working. Thanks

      you think that is bad? Go to my post of “Paint, plaster, oil based clay?..” and start reading it. I have the rabbit who won’t stop chewing and has everyone stumped. There’s a lot of remedies in that forum topic thingy that you can try, because a lot of people helped me, just none of it worked for my bunny. The other thing with the head phones and shoes…you just can’t leave that stuff out anymore. It’s as simple as that. For wires and such there are these plastic split cord things that you but over the wires. Binky bunny has pictures of them in her bunny info- bunny proofing area. You should really look into that. good luck, and seriously, read what I went through and try all of those things. one of them should work for you!

      Debbie&Theo –  Egads, I hope you won’t have the same kind of stubborn bunny as Fujoe.  She really has been through the ringer.

      Your bunny is reaching that 3 month mark of sexual maturity, and this is the time when their hormones are making them wacky.   Are you planning on getting him neutered?  That usually helps settle them down (though young bunnies – under a year, can really be a challenge, but at least neutering does help not only with destructive and territorial behavior, it can also help with litter training)

      Most bunnies will learn the word no, but what they learn is just don’t do it when you’re looking. (though some bunnies don’t care if you watch!)

      Try perfume or lemon oil.   Also check out the “House Proofing” section on this site for more tips. You’ll see you’re not alone.  My favorite pair of jeans and shoes were a prime target.

      Cords that are on the floor all the time should be covered with cord covers (I prefer the perforated coils – also on that House Proofing page)   For other items, like a walkman etc, I agree with Fujoe that you’ll have to keep those things out of harms way. 

      Keep us updated!
