Default Wee wee Pads

I've seen some stuff against wee wee pads, and I was wondering what if you use them under the fleece. So the hedgie cant get to it? Do you think it would help with keeping the fleece dry and such? I don't have a hedgie yet but I've decided fleece bedding for when I get him/her. And I was thinking of how like the pee must just kinda sit there and such. Yuck.
Just a thought.

They're a bad idea but I don't know why...

I can tell you that generally, the <ahem> fluids soak through the first layer and onto the second, so the top stays dry. I change the liners completely twice a week but Snarf generally pees in his litterpan or on the wheel.

If you're obsessing about details, thinking and re-thinking every decision you make and researching 24/7 about insects...you will make a great hedgiemama (papa?).

Once you start posting questions about poop, we'll know we've got you!

yeah i was wondering about this, how much does a hedgehog pee? in one...load? and how far does it leak through?

Miss C said it would soak through the first and to the second... So moral of the story: keep two layers of fleece in the cage at a time?

Some people sew an inner, third layer between the top and bottom...but I don't know what or how...I do know of a horror story where after the first washing, the middle layer shrunk and the other two didn't.

many puppy pads have pheromones to attract the puppies in question... however, we do use absorbent liners for birds and small animals as one of the layers. i personally don't see an issue with any unscented pads as one of the layers, but i can only speak for the bird cage liners... (i don't own birds, i just mean that those liners are meant for them).

Something else to consider before deciding for puppy pads:

I'm a new owner to my baby... She is a little girl and her name is Princess PricklesWorth McPokeyBottom... My boyfriend and i got her and instantly fell in love with her. We have puppy pads for her and the worst thing she does is burrow under them. I do have a question as far as bedding though.. What is the best thing to use for her? We got some Carefresh Natural bedding.. But i also heard that they might eat it and im worried because we arent really supposed to have her..

Any advice would be awesome!! Please and thank you!!
