    So I keep seeing everyone on here with really nice cage set ups, lovely
    matching fleeces and themed cages... I'm extremely jealous.

    And then I look at my set up...

    Mismatched bits of cut up fleece, clashing colours and nothing goes :P

    I'll need to invest in some coordinating fleeces :))

    I've got to disagree with you on that - your set up is fantastic ! You've got loads of space - it doesn't matter what colours your fleecs are !

    Your cage set up is amazing! My 3 piggies who are living on snowflake woodshavings and hay in a two tier ferplast cage are very jealous...

    I love your cage.
    Plus I totally copied your idea of hanging fleece strips off of everything, and my piggies love it!
    Eddi spends half his day rumble strutting through all the fleece strips.

    I'm jealous of the space you have! I just have boring White vetbed but it's good for my oldies bones and keeps them all nice and dry.. And I can keep an eye on their wee's too!

    Wish mine had more space! Their floor time area is bigger though, it's about a 4x5 c&c sized compared to their 2x4 cage, and try and get them out on that daily X

    I think yours is great, plenty of room. I've got co-ordinated fleeces but going to do the same as you. Lots of different colours & patterns.

    Regarding the size of their cage, I'd just like to point out that this cage takes up almost my entire bedroom, whilst all my things are crammed into one tiny corner. I had to do it because they weren't getting along in a normal sized cage. They get on amazingly now though. I just hope they appreciate the sacrifice I've made... :))

    Ha. My two have a 150 x 70 cm plastic bottomed cage. Yours looks utterly amazing. I am hoping to upgrade to something bigger once I can find something to put it on top of. Needs to be dog proof.

    Your cage is lovely and big which is the main thing. As soon as you put in matching fleeces they will find one bit to absolutely soak with pee, it will need changing before the rest and you'll be back to square one. Piggies you just got to love them :))

    20170319_191045.jpg Pshhh, I'm jealous of yours! Ours is 6x2, and NONE of my fleece matches. There's 3 colors in the cage itself, one you can't see because it's under the green cover, plus each covered sleeping side has different covers. I'm all over the place, lol.

    My two don't even get fleece! They'd be very jealous of the fleece, I daren't let them see this thread lol. They're due a full clean out this morning and the floor in general is long overdue a vacuum so really their home area looks very much neglected right now.
