Grace (like most house rabbits) likes to nibble cables if she gets half a chance. Obviously we try and keep them away from her and her away from them, however she is sneaky and sometimes finds them. The telephone/internet one is very low voltage and won’t do her any harm (but drives us mad when she snips it into little pieces), the lamp wires are a whole other matter though. It could be very dangerous for her to bite through one of these higher voltage wires so today I am beading the cable to my cat lamp to prevent her snipping through it.
This is a fairly simple task. The trickiest bit really was finding beads with large enough holes to fit over cable. I found a long wooden bead necklace in a charity shop which was just right. Now it is worth mentioning that rabbits also chew wood, to be extra safe use plastic beads.
In Shedding Some Light on the Matter I repaired a nibbled cable with electrical tape. Beading the cable over the electrical tape would make it look nicer and stop the rabbit from doing the same thing again.
