    Hi!
    So I recently moved into a brand new townhouse, and I am looking into rabbit proofing it more so my bun can have more free range without my constant supervision. A big thing for me would be protecting my baseboards and possibly the legs of some wooden furniture. I know a lot of the common solutions, but if we are being honest, most of them are eye sores and kind of tacky looking. At my old place, that would not really bother me as much...plenty of previous damage and definitely not new. However, I am really proud of my new place, and I really want to keep the overall appearance of it looking nice. Any ideas to overall keep the appearance of bunny proofing discrete? I have heard that lining the baseboards with clear packing tape can work.. has anyone tried that?

    Thank you!

    Spray your baseboards with white vinegar and water solution to stop your bun from biting there. I’ve used a small blue hose that I cut a slit in to protect my wires because blue is a part of my colour scheme. I use a covered litter box also to help keep my room discreet.

    There really is only so much you can do, and mine are such troublemakers I really can't let them run around unsupervised for more than a few minutes. If you can't spend all that much time with them, try to give them a space that's large where you won't mind it looking tacky, imo.
