I've learned our Thanksgiving houseguest will arrive with a lop-eared rabbit. His cage is generous, but he needs to move freely several times a day. In the past, the alleged 'close supervision' hasn't been quite close enough and we've had things nibbled that we wish hadn't been.
Kid Two, the rabbit's owner, is especially worried about electrical wires, and damn it, I want to keep the room's lamps this time. I know pet stores sell a bitter-tasting plastic tubing which fits over cords, but we'd need 40 or 50 feet and that's getting pretty expensive to accommodate a rabbit for a few days.
Is there anything else which might work? Aluminum foil? Styrofoam pipe insulation? A scented spray which is a deterrent (and which humans can stand)? Having The Kid bring her cat, who hates everyone?
