Default A little help with housing keeping.

So since I got Coraline I have been using Corn Cob as bedding, it seemed like the best thing at the time, but I have noticed that not only does she try and eat it, but it also gets all in her food and water, it makes a mess of my floor, etc. So I am looking at getting some sort of Fleece instead. Should I just get a blanket or what?

Here is a picture of Coraline's Current set up. It a ferret cage that I cut in half.



Suggestions?

Yes a cut to fleece liner is good. You can buy fleece blankets on sale or fleece fabric at the fabric shop or department.

Just a note- the loft and the ramp that leads to in need to be enclosed. Coraline could easily fall off, and get injured.

I'm actually planning on taking that off, it's just taking up space and she never goes up there. :\
But thanks for the advice. :]

yeah, hedgies arn't too smart when it comes to heights. I've had Cloud walk off the bed a few times

its cheaper to buy a fleece blanket and cut it down to size than to get fleece by the roll. try walmart

Oh noes, poor little Hedge hog. D:
Thanks, I will do that once I get paid. Corn Cob is going to end up costing me an arm in leg. xD
