My bunnies are banned from the living room forever. They chewed a big hole in the sofa cover. The menaces. And they are only in there for short periods as well.

Mine will be banned from the house all together if their behaviour doesn't improve! We don't even have the decorations up yet, and they've been put to bed early all week as their behaviour! They were put in 2 hours early the other night as they were uncontrollable!!! Soooo naughty!!!! :lol: :evil:

I'm glad I'm not the only one, though sorry to hear you too have naughty buns x

I'm normally not a housew proud person but at Xmas I put a lot of effort in and no way am I having them trash it all! Lol x

Timmy will be an outdoor bun when it gets warmer, we had another falling out today when he wouldn't go to his cage so I tried to pick him up and got scratched loads! Its the 3rd time now, he's so lovely until you pick him up then he turns into psycho bunny :( x

I'd be gutted, it takes me yonks to do my tree, and to replace the lights would mean having to take everything off x

How about a puppy pen around the tree? I have outdoor rabbits so its easy for me to suggest stuff!

Mine are also banned from the living room, there is only so many times you can get up to stop them being naughty when there are lots of things for them to chew! They are now penned off in the dining room as they were chewing a hole through the door when they were free in there :wave:

I did think about that as I do have spare panels, but it would look horrible so they are banned until the 6th of jan :) x

Sounds familiar. Buster is utterly obsessed with going under our tree and trying to chew it. No amount of being escorted back to the kitchen night after night is getting the message through to him. :evil::evil:

I have a puppy pen around the tree. It doesn't look too bad, but it does make me feel a bit like my house is a shopping centre where the tree is fenced of so that the mere mortals can't get to it.

The tree isn't my main concern, but Brian my new bunny seems to think that the sofa is his litter tray :evil:. Like every other rabbit of mine, he only pees in his litter tray or on my fabric, non-washable sofa :evil::evil:. Technically he isn't allowed on the sofa, but he will not take the hint. It's like a battle of wills. I love him to death and he's a little softy but argh:evil::lol:.

I'm giving myself false hope that neutering will make it stop but I know I'm lying to myself. :lol::lol:

Naughty bun! Luckily I dont have him weeing, he is good with his tray. Today he came straight into the living room and chewed the remote control, then my Sons homework! 'Sorry miss I couldnt bring my homework in, the Rabbit ate it'! :lol:

Puppy pen people must make a fortune at Christmas as I have one around my tree too, but regards the weeing, I have four house bunnies and they all use their litter trays and no accidents since neutering and spaying....so take heart :))

Thank you for the hope! Mine have always used only their litter trays and the sofa. I'm sure they have their reasons, perhaps they're marking my territory as their own. It's a good thing I love him! Hopefully when he's neutered and bonded his new friend will distract him!

Hehe Merry and Pippin are banned from the living room too, they went straight to nibble at the tree bless them. By the way can they or is are they bad for bunnies? I'm just thinking if they can nibble on the wood I might chop it into chew toys for them after xmas.... But as far as I'm aware it's not a safe tree but I'm not sure if I'm remembering that right...

If they continue to wee on your sofa you should try washing the area down with something to neutralise the smell as they will keep returning to the same area....I'mnot sure what you should use on furniture, I've heard of using 50/50 vinegar and water to neutralise cages/hutches etc....not sure if that will leave a smell in your living room though on soft furnishings or if it will cause a discolouration :( perhaps start a new thread to ask what others have done :)

pets at home do a spray its in a blue bottle you spray it on the area they have weed on and it kills the smell we cant smell and the enzymes that are left after we have cleaned the area, because normal household products cant get rid of the smell and enzymes completely they return to the same place and mark it again.
