    Fleece blankets

    Just wondering, where do people buy their fleece from?

    Washing fleece bedding?

    So I've had my pigs on pine wood shavings for two years. And my parents are tight gits and don't want to change because we get the wood shavings free.

    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.

    Hi all, I want to make the change to cage liners for my two boars, but am finding it hard to know where to look. Does anyone have any recommendations for a shop that isn’t too pricey, but have a good absorbent layer? I have a 2x4 C&C cage. Thanks!

    Fleece And Bath Mats

    I tried aubiose and absolutely loved it. But I react to it when changing entirely and poo picking - unless I wear a mask during and a good while after. So I'm going to go back to fleece. My question is regarding bath mats. If I use them with puppy pads and/or towels underneath, would it work...

    So I was browsing ebay for some fleece and noticed that I could get some super cheap.. however, there's a catch! It reads "not from a smoke free home" in the description. Should I even consider it? Can you even get the smell of smoke out of fleece? Thank you! P.s. also worried about piggies...
