hi guys!
I am currently using wood shavings as a substrate on top of puppy pads for easier clean up but I’d like something softer for my piggies little feet and wood shavings just aren’t good enough haha!
Any suggestions for affordable alternatives?
Thanks!

A lot will depend on their housing set up.
Are they inside or outside?
What sort of cage/hutch do they have?

They are in a hutch but currently inside.. persuaded my partner to let them have the spare room through winter haha! Yes I’ve had a good read of that, not sure what to go for though
