    DIY cage liners

    I want to make my own cage liners and as I cannot buy uhaul in the uk and zorb is too expensive I’ve been advised to use a mattress protector between my fleece. I’ve found these Slumberdown Waterproof Mattress Protector but just want to double check and make sure that they will work.

    Fleece Bedding

    So today is the day I change from shavings to fleece. Hope it goes well but not sure how I'm going to cope with the mess from hay. At the moment it's on a hay loft on the side of the cage, they don't seem to eat much mind. Does anyone have tips for fleece bedding?

    Homemade Cage Liners

    I decided to move to fleece bedding after a few things about shavings I didn't like. Including finding a piece stuck in Fudge's bits. I've made the cage liner for the smaller one and will make it for the other tonight. I want rid of the shavings ready for tomorrow's bin collection so I'll have...

    After two days of trying to master the art of wicking I think my fleece cage liners are almost ready to be put in the cage, however, I have a massive fear of one of the girls burrowing it up or it slipping about, a lot of people have recommended the stuff you put under rugs to stop them sliding...

    Introducing Fleece Items

    I've just ordered some fleece cage liners (the waterproof kind) and some fleece beds and pockets/cosies/hideys, do I start by introducing the fleece cage liners first and continue to let them use their plastic igloo (changing it because it takes up too much room in their cage) or the other way...

    I'm thinking of purchasing Vetbed, I've seen a lot of it online but I wanted to know if there is any that any of you would particularly recommend or where to get it from? Or whether its even worth purchasing or not?

    Am I Doing Something Wrong?

    Recently I've seen the majority of people on here have cages, indoor in particular, with fleeces and some hay areas instead of outdoor hutches with wood shavings and hay, at the moment my piggies are in an outdoor with wood shavings and hay but when the weather starts getting colder again we are...

    C & C Ramp Too Slippery?

    Hi all! I noticed last night that Blade was hesitant to go back down the ramp from their loft, and when she finally did, she just slid straight down to the bottom like a slide! Ack! Now I'm thinking of dismantling the loft until I can fix the ramp up. Has anyone else had this problem? How did...

    Fleece Bedding Checklist?

    Hi guys! I've decided to try using fleece bedding in Teddy's outdoor hutch. It's on 2 levels and has recently been re-covered so it'll be waterproof too. I was hoping you could give me some pointers on the initial set-up so I know I'm on the right track. Here's what I'm thinking/not sure of...

    What's In Your Liners?

    Hello all! So, I haven't been a piggy slave for more than a month, but I'm already getting ready to try switching over to fleece bedding. I made my pigs' cage myself, but I'm upgrading next week to a C&C cage with a base, because they're experiencing the "predator-swooping-in-from-above" thing...
