Haha! That's all right. XD I kind of freaked out thinking they gave me the whole giant roll.
My parents also reacted the same way. It was definitely an interesting way to end the night. XD

Nice! That vinyl sheeting is an awesome idea!

Hey Aether! I was just curious, how is Basch doing with the vinyl? Has he been able to climb at all?

Just wondering because I caught my girl climbing the side of her C&C cage, and I was about to buy the vinyl until I thought of putting cardboard behind the coroplast. Any thoughts on that?

Hey lilsurfergrlsp!

Basch is doing great with the vinyl. I've seen him stretch to reach the vinyl but his tiny paws just slip right down, so he gives up. I've only seen him try it a few times and so far so good! I haven't had any problems with it. My hubby was worried that the vinyl might melt due to the CHE, but it's not aimed directly at the sides of the cage. It has never felt too warm or too cold, it's just right! Kind of like Goldilocks and the three...hedgehogs.

Hm...cardboard behind the coro you say? The only issue I would foresee would be that it would likely get poopy if she starts to try to climb it with dirty feet. Which would mean you might have to replace it. Also, I'm not sure how it would be with your heat source. If you have a CHE, I would be careful not to aim it directly at any of the cardboard. Oh, and using cardboard might not be as aesthetically pleasing as vinyl or extra coro, but that's really up to you, since the hedgie won't care either way!

I've never used cardboard, so other than that I don't know what else to tell ya. Perhaps someone else on the forum has thought of it before. I would try searching on here to see if it's been discussed. =]

ps I see your hedgehog is named Tansy. Is it possible you are a Redwall fan?

Good to hear he's doing great with it! And thanks for adding the tip about the CHE, as I have one too - I was worried about it possibly melting the vinyl, but it's pretty much on top of the cage around the middle, pointed straight down, and not towards the sides.

I'm just concerned about the cardboard because I've heard some hedgies like to chew on it, plus if it gets wet, etc. I think I'll go with the vinyl and set up some cardboard until it arrives in the mail but thanks so much for the help!

And YES! I love Redwall! I actually dug through my old books and found my entire Redwall collection, which is part of the reason why I decided to get a hedgehog. I loved Abbess Tansy!! It's such a great series!

Glad to have helped! ^_^

YES!! When I saw her name I got so excited! I almost named my first hedgehog Tansy (went with Relm instead). The Pearls of Lutra was one of my favorite of the Redwall books. It's always nice to meet another fan!

It's so awesome hearing that Basch doesn't mind the vinyl and that it didn't melt. I need to start doing tests next month; I should be getting my first ever hedgie in April or so I hope.



Psst! Btw you two, I'm also a Redwall fan!!! 8D I haven't read them in ages so I didn't recognize Tansy sadly. ;w;
I need to reread them and buy the rest of the series. XD I think I only have up to Loamhedge and even then I'm missing around half the books.

Awesome! Redwall is such a great series, one that you can read over and over and they never get old. I need to expand my collection too, I never got to reading the ones about the badgers and pirates and such
