I wasnt sure, africa is totally different to here so I thought I'd mention it incase!

Can you get fleece blankets or fleece material? You could cut some up into strips and put them in as extra bedding. Safe, warm and cosy! And better than shavings. Plus its washable so easy to re use each year! Not sure if that may be possible for you or not, would put your mind at ease about it as you know he has lots of warm bedding then!

I'm glad one of my suggestions was more helpful! If you can get some, do it will give extra warmth to ease your mind and stress! Especially helpful on the more cold nights!

Hand warmers are also good for when you need to travel like to the vet for keeping them warm. So even when/if can get the che with a thermostat that will still be very helpful!

His bedding at the moment is solid fleece blankets. I fold it twice and lay it down in his cage. I might be able to buy one this month, and snip it up for extra bedding.

Lol, you always have helpful ideas! I don’t know what I would’ve done without you! You help me so much.

And I’ll definitely look into the hand warmers. I feel like they might cool down even slower than the bottle, which would be great.

Hand warmers stay warm for a long time! I am a snowboarder and use them in my gloves on super cold days. They stay warm for up to 8 hours, and are typically pretty cheap, so that might be a great option to look into!
