Default Re: making liners

Alot of people use two layers with something absorbent in between and it works very well
I have used them both ways and each way worked great for me.

I am going to make one liner with fleece on both sides and some old towels I have sewn in to the middle. And try it out on my daughter's guinea pig (who we have one Carefresh litter right now). If it works on Bear, I am betting it will work on our future hedgehog!

Now I KNOW your pig is smarter than you. You run? On purpose?

I cut 28 squares of fleece to fit the bottom of the cage. I fold one in half for under the pigloo and I put paper towels on the other half of the cage which includes under the wheel. I then put another layer of fleece on top of the whole mess. In the morning, I pull off the top layer, remove the paper towels, wipe down the cage under the paper towels (that's where she pees), and replace the paper towels and the top liner. The bottom, folded liner gets changed twice a week or more often if she decides to poop on it.

I had brain surgery two years ago and I am a germaphobe, so I am sure my cleaning is excessive, but it works and there is no odor other than the stinky cat food.

I can't even fathom living in a place where the temps get that low much less walking out of the front door. Heck! I love to ski, but I refuse to ski when it's less than 30 out.

I heard a funny saying when I moved to North Carolina from central Canada.

"I golf in the 70's. If it is any colder than that I go home!"

I have lived in NC for (mostly) my whole life - can't say I don't agree! I don't know how you Canadians (heck, anywhere north of Maryland really!) do it. Anything colder than 50 or so and I'm shivering in my booties.
