When you share a home with bunnies and birds, you must make loads of compromises. Bunny proofing means protecting or removing anything that can be chewed that is up to approximately 3 feet high, unless the bunny likes to climb on furniture. One of our bunnies runs laps on the back of the sofa.
It is incredibly difficult to bird proof a room. Removal of plants and anything that they might want to tear and shred is a given. But don’t forget about the thin iPad/iPhone power cables. They love to chew them.
One of my See a Penny pieces has been hanging on the dining room wall since I completed it in March of 2013.
Today I found one of the pieces of mirror on the floor. When I replaced the mirror, I noticed damage–
and certain the culprit is either The Bird or Bob.
They both love landing and perching on the piece, but I didn’t realize chewing was involved.
I could attempt giving the birds a misting with water as a deterrent. Probably would not be a deterrent for Bob because he frequently takes a bath in Big Baby’s water dish.
Haven’t decided if I will be moving the wallpiece to a different location. Repair will be time consuming, but doable. The squares are constructed of roofing felt, tree wrap, mirror, hardware cloth, and cotton twine.
Slipping in a new square of tree wrap won’t work. They squares were perforated for ease of binding with the cotton twine.
So, what is the solution to prevent Elliot from chewing my shoe laces while I am wearing the shoes?
