How to keep your #books safe from your #rabbits

For those that don’t know, my husband and I have two house rabbits. Please meet Putty (left) and Nugget (right):


Putty and Nugget love running around in the house, especially the Harry Potter Room, and why wouldn’t they? It is colorful, full of books and has a bed to jump on. But with this comes a problem, not for the rabbits, but for me and my books. The Rabbits LOVE to nibble on books. To be honest they nibble on everything! But today’s topic is books:


Before I could save my books, I figured out that the rabbits love Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit

Anyway the question was what to do? My rabbits love the Harry Potter room too much and sit outside it begging to go in. But they also destroy the books! So I decided to put the books in jail:


However, the rabbits still try to get behind the mesh. But I find with some other nibble alternatives, they are happy to be in the room without nibbling any books (not that they can now):


So summary:

1. Rabbits eat books
2. Put mesh around the bookshelves
3. Sorted!

    Mine love books too…what I did was to clear the bottom shelf from books and place there a copy of the Yellow Pages. They get so much fun from shredding it, and at the end of playtime there’s still so much to play with next time. Books happy, bunnies happy, hoomin happy!

      That is a really good idea! The problem is, I have 7 bookshelves! Where would I put the books 🙁

  • Hehe we have the mesh up too, but not before they got to mine, as well. Love them to death tho….we have four and mom says they can do no wrong!

      Hehe they can do no wrong 🙂 They eat everything and bite everything, but I don’t mind 🙂

  • So cute! My friend has rabbits too but she’s lucky because she has hardwood in most of the house and the bunnies do not like walking on it. Your buns are so cute!

      Yea I have mostly carpet! They hate the bathrooms because of the tiles!
