Hi :) from what I can see, the fleece you've chosen looks fine :) it isn't the fleece that absorbs the moisture - the fleece wicks the moisture away to the absorbent layer underneath, keeping the top of the fleece dry. Newspaper isn't enough unfortunately - I use newspaper then towels, then double fleece. I hope this helps!

I find towels work well, yes :) it's important to wash the fleece 3 times before use too (without fabric conditioner!) as this breaks the waterproof seal so the fleece will wick.

I prefer towels too.

And a capful white vinegar is useful to remove the wee stains.
