i want to switch from using shavings to liners, but before i can put liners in i feel it would be best to get roxy's nais trimmed ( i'm afraid she'll get stuck every time she tries to move). so would newpaper be ok as a temperary liner till i get her to the vet ???

Her nails shouldn't get stuck unless you're using something that has loose threads or small loops (such as a towel). If you're using fleece or flannel, they should be fine, even with long nails. That said, I can't imagine newspaper being very comfortable, and I can just imagine a hedgie covered in black ink from it.

Aside from ink issues (colored hedgie, possible toxicity), newspaper isn't terribly absorbant. So if your little one pees, she'll get wet and cold :(

I bought my polar blanket at a dollar store.. so it's very cheap. I cut them to fit in the storage and it fixed with velcro. I have a lot like this so I can change it each day and it's very easy!! ;)

Polar fleece and fleece are different but both are suitable to use. Polar fleece is thicker, more plush and a more velvet like appearance than regular fleece.
