As my piggies are outdoors, I am always looking for new ways of keeping them warm during the winter.

They already have snugglesafe heat pads, cosies, beds, plenty of hay, a thick fleece blanket covering the hutch front at night and hutch insulation.

Now, when they are in their pet carriers, I bed them on fleece for the journey. I have noticed that Erin and Ena especially like to wrap themselves up in the fleece as if they are in bed (like we do). I have some large fleeces and some small fleeces (the dog and cat ones with paw prints on them). I am wondering if I could put one in their sleeping area at night time as they may like to wrap themselves up in the fleece? Will this be going over the top?
