I was actually talking more about the shower panels that are just plastic that you would normally just use adhesive to put on your walls. It is kind of thin and has a slight texture to it. Nothing overly rough. I would probably just tape off the corners so my hedgie couldnt hurt himself. I just wanted to make sure nothing in the plastic would effect the hedgies skin or anything like that.
My plan is to do the shower panel as a bottom of the cage with an awesome fleece bedding that my girlfriend is making up. Then I was going to use the shower paneling on the sides of the cage so my little hedgie wont try and climb the walls.
I got it at Homedpot here in Alabama on the same aisle as the tileboard and wood paneling. It is really thin and pretty cheap. I got all of those pieces out of one sheet. I still had a bunch left over that I left there cause I had no use for it.
Target. They had the parts to make a one level for $16 and I got 2 of those and made a second level so I could have storage and a roof for my hedgie. I wanted a roof to sit the CHE on for fear of a clamp lamp coming loose and falling on him. I even had enough extra to make another little storage crate to keep supplies in.
Wire closet shelving also makes great lids for C&C cages. There are pictures somewhere on here.
Depending on the fixture you get for the emitter, some of them have small holes along the bottom rim of the shroud. I use those holes to wire the emitter to the lid and then there is no way it can get knocked off or moved. If your fixture doesn't have holes, they can be easily added.
Ah thats a great idea Nancy. I haven't gotten the actual lamp part yet. I was gonna stop at the local pets store and grab that sometime this week so Ill keep an eye for predrilled holes to avoid waking my neighbors up with any more hedgehog habitat construction.
