If I were to use fleece as bedding, I know the tips and advice says to use newspaper underneath.. but do you double over your fleece?

Also which is the best type of bedding to use for the long haired pig? She has been in with the other girls and already has a wet looking bottom, because of how much they pee rolleyes and they were cleaned out this morning.

Any advice is much appreciated :) xx

hello lovely!

I double over my fleece, use newspaper on the bottom layer, two towels and then the fleece :) Just make sure you've washed it otherwise it may not wick the liquid through properly. my long hairs are on hay and wood shavings at the moment with layers of newspaper on the bottom as we do not have a washing machine I don't have enough fleece at the moment.

LOVE LEXY <3 xx

okay, my other half is rather sceptical. he wont let me buy the fleece untill you've put the money in :( I slapped him for saying it but he didn't listen... and it's his money as I don't earn anything...

If you don't trust me, like, that's fine I do understand.

sorry

xx
