I hope someone can please help me stop my Syrian biting her way out of her cage!
We rehomed her from a rescue centre where apparently she used to chew the bars and cage non-stop.
After we brought her home we moved her into a Criceti 15. She has a 12" silent spinner, a platform, ladders, a wooden suspension bridge, some toilet rolls and a wooden ladder hanging from the ceiling with toys. We let her out for about 45 mins every evening.
But every single night for the last week she's climbed to the top of the cage and has bitten all the plastic away in one corner!
The hole is so big now that she can squeeze her nose right through!I'm worried she's not going to stop and she'll escape. Or she's damaging her teeth. Or she's swallowing some of the pieces of plastic.
Is she bored? Wants attention? I was thinking of adding a sand bath and maybe some more toys?
Someone also suggested wiping vinegar on there. But is that harmful for her?
Please help - She's doing it now and i'm worried I'll turn around in a min and she'll be on the sofa next to me!
