    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.....

    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.
