I got the problem solved, i went out and bought some softer smooth plastic liner that you would put under your desk chair if its on carpet. I secured some fabric to the underside of it to put between the plastic cage bottom and the plastic. Its a snug fit in there , made sure he wouldn't be able to get under it. He was digging his heart out and you could barely hear him.
Now we can both be happy
P.s I love when hes wheeling in the middle of the night and you get up to watch, he knows your there as he stops looks at you then starts sniff'n and then goes right back to his jog.
