Default Re: Carefresh

I've used it with rescues, both the green and the white. It is very dusty and makes a mess when picking hedgie out of the cage. It gets in food and water dishes and can cause impaction if hedgie eats it.

PROS - IMO, none, but can go longer without cleaning the cage than with liners

- messy
- expensive
- can cause impaction
- the green hides any off coloured urine or feces
- dries out feces making it difficult to find and tell if hedgie's poop is normal
- because it hides urine and feces, often people won't clean the cage as often as it should be
- dries out their skin and gets stuck in their quills
