When I adopted Demi I was told to use kaytee fresh and cozy. It made SUCH A MESS!! White strips everywhere!! When I found this site I read about the fleece liners and immediately said "no I can't" simply because I don't have access to a washing machine and couldn't wash those regularly. However, in a recent trip to Walmart I found fleece blankets for the low low price of $2.88. I bought 5 of them! Instead of cutting them, I folded them into quarters which fit the base of Demi's cage perfectly. The cage is now easier to clean, and I can flip the liner over and get a few more days out of it when it gets a little dirty. Best of all, Demi is now sleeping in her pouch and not under it. She also seems more active. Also, because I switched to liners I was able to put another dish in her cage for water. She definitely prefers that to the water bottle, though we did leave that in her cage for when she drinks all of the water out of the dish at night. She's a thirsty critter after all that running.
