Mine chew on the cubes and coroplast. They tend to do it when they want food or attention, or if they are bored.

Mine chew a little bit, but not much. Only at dinner time...

Only one of our piggies does this... he does it when he feels he's been ignored, to get our attention.

Hi Erynn,

When you say cubes... are you referring to the grids?

Fizbit use to chew at the grids of his cage when he wanted to get to something outside of his cage. He actually took the paint off the grids in spots. We had to cover certain areas of his cage with hand towels, cause I was concerned that the paint/ metal would not be the best thing to be chewing on.

Fizbit has always been a rather hyper little guy. Not the normal mellow cavy that we think cavies to be.

Chewing on grids now has stopped.
