Smile Cage Liner Question

I'm not getting my baby for another few weeks and I'm mostly prepared for her. (I just need to get her food and set up the cage.) Right now, I only have one question. When I started looking into cage liners, I was mostly on guinea pig websites. You know, those ones with all the pretty pictures that show you how to build a stable C&C cage step-by-step. One of the sites (I forget the name) had a section about how to prepare the fleece so that liquids will go right through rather than being absorbed by the liner. Should this be done for my hedgie's liner as well? Or is it better to just cut it to the right size, wash it, and put it into the cage?

Thanks in advance for the help,
Kasey

That's really exciting! Make sure to post pictures as soon as you bring her home.
I have never heard about this treatment of fleece to be honest, I just change my liners every two days. I guess it depends on your hedgie, but Pazu makes quite a mess with his food so I tend to change the liners quite often. Most people including myself also put paper towel underneath the wheel as hedgies like to poop n' scoot, this helps collect the poo and pee that runs off the wheel and can be changed daily. You can also train your hedgehog to do his business in a corner litter box, but still... most won't get off the wheel in time!
Hope I helped answer some of your questions!

Drew & Pazu

The liquids just go straight through the fleece onto the puppy pads I have under the liner.

Use an absorbant material in the middle, Its the best way to keep odor free!

Thanks guys! I guess guinea pigs just have different fleece specifications. I'll definitely be posting pictures once I get her. Posting them and making sure all of my friends and family know just how adorable she is. Now it looks like the only thing left to do, besides the obvious, is come up with a name... I'm sure her personality will provide some insight once she finally comes home.

They each will tell you the perfect name!

I've never heard of or been made aware of any fleece treatments for liners and I've made them for almost three years now, so I would say you are safe to wash it in a fragrance free detergent and put it in the cage. Remember not to use dryer sheets or fabric softener though.

Congrats on your new little one!

It wasn't exactly a treatment... More like a specific way of washing the fleece so that all the liquids go right through to the absorbent material underneath. Thanks for all the help. I think I was getting a little worried about nothing.

And thanks. I'm really excited about getting her. Months of research and learning all leading up to getting her. I'm sure it'll be worth it, even if she is the little grouch she looks like in the one picture I've seen.
