Default Re: cleaning the cage

I let mocha sleep on fleece strips from extra fleece that I have, and I vacuum the cage daily. When she's done wheeling, she likes to roam around with her poopy boots and make as much as a mess as she can. I wash the fleece monthly, if not sooner.

Think of a matress hard and soft..the yesterdays news pellets are hard and dont provide a lot of cushion. Most people only use the pellets for litter boxes. For the bedding though its popular to use fleece liners, aspen shavings, or carefresh for a comfy home to sleep on.

As for bedding changes..we use shavings and clean and disinfect them every 4 or 5 days or so or when we start noticing a smell.
