    Doughnut had a nibble of my sofa when it was new but that was about it. Not really into skirting boards but loves the corners of any wall where she can get to the lining paper and rip it off, so had to put plastic corners on my walls stuck with blutak! Also got clear Perspex on some areas where she's managed to find a bit to tug at and to keep her from behind the sofa. She used to love running behind there and pulling the lining paper off the wall behind it.

    I know, big chunks too. I heard little paws behind me then ripping!

    She also worked out how to pull the Perspex away from the wall then run round and rip the paper. If I don't have it wedged tightly to the nest of tables she gets to the paper. She's surprisingly strong for a little one and yes naughty too. I've had to paint it all again with no lining paper otherwise I have a bare wall showing at the bottom.

    Thanks for the replies, and sorry it took me so long to say thanks!

    I just ended up telling my landlord I will replace the sofa if it gets damaged by either of my pets and it was fine, I said it probably won't be and I was only mentioning because I was worried incase it did happen, but she was like it's just a sofa don't worry about it. I'm going to try and wedge some sort of tube setup behind it, so at least she won't be able to chew the bottom of it from the back where I can't see her. I got a bunch of blankets from the thrift store to cover it with incase she decides to dig or pee on it, and I'm going to make sure there is not even the tiniest gap underneath for her to stick her little head under

    I'm gonna buy my own coffee table that she can destroy if she wants, and put the landlords in the loft

    Skirting boards I still haven't decided. I might look and see if there are any chewing deterants that are safe for bunnies that I can apply to them

    I need to try and find a dog crate that will fit under my really awkwardly shaped desk! I want to maximize her empty floor space for running and also not give her an additional jumping platform I feel bad looking at the smaller sized one than she had in her old bedroom, but then I'm like she is never even going to be shut in it so what does it matter, it just needs to hold a litter tray and hay rack. I'm leaving the country in six months and probably won't even take the dog crate with me so I don't know why I'm stressing over it, yet I've gone to the pet store about five different times to just stare at dog crates

    Can't you get Perspex and blue tack it to part of the desk so she can't get under it.

    I don't mind her going under the desk really, there isn't anything under there at all I just wanted to put her dog crate base under there so that it's out of the way and she has more floor space in the rest of her area to run around

    I've gone from a house where she had her own fairly big bedroom to a studio space type cabin, and when she gets here she won't be allowed to play outside anymore, so I'm really trying to think of how I can use the space to its maximum potential for her
