I’ve been seeing that fleece is very popular, but I was wondering if there were other options. We have three piggies, Mj, Indie, and Sati. We’ve been wanting to give them more room for a while because they’re growing. Money isn’t really a big deal because they’re family. But what’s the most effective in the fact that they are three girls who poo and pee a lot and don’t always go in one place? Whether it be quilt, fleece, etc. thanks!

I found hay pan to be the best investment, which made cleaning a lot easier for me.
My Finn and Lara mostly go pee and poo in their hay pans making other parts of the cage cleaner. I have fleece liner and fleece pee pads in their cages and washing them has become much easier.

I lay puppy pee pad in the hay pan then put hay on top. In about a day, the puppy pee pad in the bottom of hay pan is soaking wet because they mostly went pee and poo in the hay pan. I throw away the soiled hay along with puppy pee pad. I find cleaning to be much easier.

Do you have indoor or outdoor piggies? Mine are outside in a hutch and I put them on peepads and hay. They were on newspaper and hay but I found the peepads much better as they don't go all soggy and horrible like newspaper.
