Right fleece isnt working for us. I have tried:

Newspaper, towel, fleece

Newspaper, kitchen roll, fleece

Newspaper, hay, fleece

Half fleece half hay=kitchen full of hay

He basically has about two or three wet patches that end up having to be fully scrubbed out every two days. He was using a shallow tray with hay in but hes decided that I'm too much of a lazy cavy slave and it requires to be tipped up and to use other places instead.xx>>>



I dont wnat to use woodshavings as they too will go everywhere and I'm worried about his boy bits.

Can wiggles go on wood pellets or may they eat them? Fleece on woodpellets?

If you’re good with a sewing-machine you can make a sort of pillowcase made of fleece, which you can fill up with wood shavings / wood pellets. That way you don't have the loose shavings, but it will absorbe the urine.

When you say wood pellets is that the ones you use for cat-litter, if it si then I use these for my cats when they are dry I would have thought them too hard and uncomfortable for their feet and I know when they get wet they make more mess than wood shavings- they go into a powdery type form and it gets everywhere.

I've switched from woodshavings to carefresh (simply for the reason woodshavings were sticking to everything in my room!) And the only downside to it is the cost... it hardly lasts me. One 'big' bag will do one and a half clean outs and it costs me £16 :{ opposed to woodshavings costing £9.99 and lasting about 8/9 clean outs!

i'm very lazy i just use newspaper, and they have a hay area, which tends to get bigger, except for nelson who has his hay in a cat litter tray and he loves it.
