Hi guys! Is it normal/ok for my piggies to be chewing the footstool that I replaced the igloo with? I read that the igloo causes squabbles because there are more exits but my girls are chewing it! They never chewed the igloo. I don't know why they are doing this. They have an edible tunnel with a hole (does anyone know what I'm talking about?) that they can chew, plus apple wood sticks and hay twists. I don't understand. Should I put the igloo back? Or is the chewing ok??
Thank you!

hmm. Chewing is usually fine but it depends on the material the stool is made of and if it has a finish on it.
Asher has an Ikea Doll Bed and he is always chewing on it, I don't mind because it is made of untreated pine. After a while I'll sand it down but it seem s fine.

This is a plastic footstool that a few members have mentioned using. However, this one is from the dollar store so I don't know how different it is from the Rubbermaid one recommended by members. I noticed they do slightly chew on the igloo as well...

plastic cant be good for them to chew, i would take it out. If they dont chew on the igloo, put that back in and maybe cut a second exit into it.

hmmmmm, then I would use strictly edible things like you said you have or fleece hideys, since you have chewing piggies I recommend that you take out the plastics that they chew on
