she already has a towel over her cage wich has topped her for a while but now shes back to biting for hours someone on her suggested putting her in her cage an hour before we actually went to bed wich ive also been trying but no change.

hmmm not really because she downstairs and bites the walls and ive got patio doors with blinds that she bites and i cant really bunnyproof them... i would need to look at brining her upstairs but the problem there is when shes out she bites the guinea pig bars on there cage.....:lol:

its weird bcoz when she is free range during the day sometimes she sits in her cage anyway it just seems to be when she knows she cant get out shes not happy!!

Could you not slide a large flattened cardboard box between the bars and the bunny? I know some set ups you can't do this will, but it will act as a barrier, so it doesn't become a habit

I had this problem with my Splodge. Is honey in on her own in the cage? If she is it is likely that she is bored.

My poor Splodge used to go mental with the bars on the cage and I realised a bit too late that she was bored and lonely! (she became very very naughty due to being left!) when I got Scrumpie she was so happy and isn't quite as destructive now. I also took her out of the cage as she just didn't seem to like it.

she is herself yeah and not yet spayed she will get done in a few months when we are more sure of her age didnt want it done to early as we were slightly unsure how old she was.... was thinking about getting her companion but its only a nero 4 dont want it getting to crowded lol! maybe a nethie dwarf lol

Alvin and pearl sleep in a different room to me, thats the only tip i have.... put your bunny in a different room at night with more space and a pal :)

Lola chomps on her bars when we put her in her cage. We cover her with a big fur throw on a night and she instantly calms down.

However, she wakes up at about 6am and trashes her cage (and I mean trashes)!

You could get a metal pen/run and put it around the cage - we did that with Moo and we took off the roof from the nero cage and just used the bottom for her bed and litter tray etc. She loved it so much more this way. We also put rugs down in the run and she tended to sleep on them during the day!
