I have ordered uhaul pads for fleece liners, but they will not be in until tomorrow.

However, Archie is trying to ingest his carefresh bedding and is choking and coughing. I had to rub this throat to get him to cough up a giant chunk. What can I put him on until I can sew everything tomorrow? I have the fleece. I was thinking of cutting the fleece to size, and putting a few towels underneath (not sewing them) for today and tomorrow while I sew away.

Advice, please!

Use an old bathroom towel or just newspaper if necessary; it's perfectly OK for one night.

I wonder why he is eating the Carefresh. Don't take offence but has Archie got plenty of hay to eat as they do need a lot of hay throughout the day.

Fleece and towels work really well - I would just put a layer of newspaper underneath them for extra absorption
