This weekend, I finally gave up on ever having the rug by our patio door again and bought a new one. So far, Alice isn't even remotely interested in chewing on it. Score for the humans!
Not to say she's not interested in it at all:
It's turned into the Hedgie Holder. She put her Hedgie on the rug last night and then walked away. It's still there now. It actually kind of looks like Hedgie's asking to go out.
I've decided to keep Alice's rug, since it's such a prized possession. It's still in its regular spot: wadded up in front of the TV.
