Hello parents! My gliders Chichi & Mungo keep chewing on the zipties of my exercise wheel and since the cage is right next to me in my bedroom, so it drives me nuts when they do it. Its a metal cage so its very distracting and noisy. Every other sound doesnt bother me except that, and I wanted to know if there is anything else they could chew on instead?

I have a lot of foraging toys and cork, among other things but they seem to go for the zip ties now everytime. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I would use anti-pill fleece. In one direction it stretches, in the other it
doesn't stretch much. I would cut it in strips so it doesn't stretch and tie the
wheel/s down with that.

or for a few pennies you can get ear plugs at a hardware store and sleep with
them.

I just use the plastic wheel that attaches to the cage. It's relatively quiet. I believe it's called a quiet glide. You can get it at any pet store.

Thats a great idea with using fleece, thanks Ill try that out! Unfortunately I already sleep with headphones to drown out the noise, but the zip tie chewing there is no drowning out. That and barking, but barking I check on them if that happens.

Couldnt find what you were trying to describe, but if it is a exercise wheel I already have one called a freedom wheel that is silent and all one piece, its the zip ties that I use to the the wheel up that the gliders are chewing on that is my issue.
