Quick Help with Making a Dig Box!
 
I'm busy making him one out of a shoe box and was just wondering if the rough edges where I cut would bother him and if they did how I can fix that. :!: :)

Sounds good to me! I have about 17 rolls of duct tape all in different colors, i just wasn't sure if they would nibble on it??

I used to keep a cardboard tissue box with Brillo, my first hedgie. He never chewed on it and it wasnt sharp at all. Maybe go over it with a nail file to loosen it up though?

I used an old hard drive box and cut two doors in. I rounded the corners, and then taped 'doorframes' with electrical tape. Even when electrical tape creases around inner corners, it doesn't leave pointy bits. :)

I used a Tupperware container ( rectangular one) .. Cut a piece out of the side so it was easier to climb in and just lightly melted the edges of the cut out so they were smooth.. Easy, cheap and easy to clean :)

And I'd watch some kinds of tape . Chloe chewed on the black tape I put on one corner of her cage liner

Okay thanks! I decided to use duct tape but i'm gonna make sure he's not chewing and i'll replace pieces when they come loose!
