At £3 apiece you can't go wrong! Each blanket is large enough when folded in half to fit a 2x4 C&C perfectly. It's a gorgeous thick pastel stripe pattern which both the pigs and I love. I only needed to cut one blanket to size to fit the U-shape section at the top of the cage. ;D

gemma and i are thinking of getting this for our little pigers.

is this stuff ok to use, what do you put underneath the fleece. and how thick is the fleece....

I'm sorry for asking so much but we really need to get some of this to help with cleaning.

Do you piggies ever try and jump from that open bit? Zubin would!

Sorry, I haven't been around lately.

Fleece is perfectly fine to use. I know many people who use it; all of them have discovered how they have found it is:

a) cheaper;
b) quicker (in some cases);
c) cosier and gentler on pigs' feet...

...thank normal beddings (woodshavings, carefresh etc.)

Under the fleece I just use newspaper. Puppy trainign pads are also fantastic but I had to give them up due to cost.

My fleece is 2 layers thick. Most use just one layer, with towels, crib pads, puppy pads and newspaper underneath. They only need to wash the fleece once a week or even less.

Fleece wicks urine through to whatever is underneath, so the surface does not stay wet if you put something absorbant beneath the fleece.

all those hutches look very complex, but very cool!
Thanks Lucinda. When I settle in my own place I will switch it to an open 6x3 with 2x3 loft. That's the plan anyway. :)

The swing doors are just open for the pics. They are closed when I'm not supervising them.

Sorry; I deleted the pics in photobucket, I will get new pics up when I clean the cage in a few days.

Yep, they are in my room. The cage takes up a good 40% of my bedroom so it is a tight squeeze.
I only ever get kept awake at night if Lottie is thirsty (she hooks her teeth in the spout and pulls it out the bottle) or if one of the ladies is in heat.
