With both these use double the fleece around the water bottle in the freezer
And depending how cold the tile/slab your using is depends on if you should use single or double layer of fleece. As obviously they will be going on them and you dont want them too cold they are very sensitive to the cold.

Its okay Mecki I wasnt too sure if it would work or not and suggested as a maybe sorta thing not knowing exactly how bad it is. I've never traveled to a hot country, my family never talk about hot countries, so I've never known what its like at all. Its lack of knowledge on hot countries really my own fault !! I had only just woke up when I read it though so reacted worse than I probably should have - so sorry.

The bottle idea might work, I'll try that and see how it goes. Thank you! I'm really thankful for the help I've received everywhere on this site,

The jell matts we have for the dogs do not really feel cold. what they do is when they lay on them they draw body heat out of the dog and transfer it into the mat which then disapates it. Kind of the same as the jell infused human bed pillows that keep you cooler at night. Thats the best way I can describe them.

****, sounds pretty cool. Won't they draw too much heat though?

That I do not know. We have only used them with the dogs and their Great Pyreneese so you cant get enough heat out of them in our summers! With hedgies a person may have to experiment with different layers of cloth over it to get the right cooling effect.

Off subject here. Just wanted to say that I grew up with a Great Pyreneese! Love them!! Beautiful dogs. (We have Newfoundland mix now.)

They are great, we have 5 here on the farm ages 1 yr to 16 yrs. Wish our prickly little friends would make it that long.

I wouldn't put the frozen water bottles right in the cage for fear of causing a hibernation attempt. It's recommended to put them on the top of the cage so the cooler air will settle into the cage. The same with the tiles, I wouldn't put them in the fridge, you don't want a drastic change in temperature as that can also cause a hibernation attempt.
